Physical Security


SM&W recognized that in order to maintain the outstanding quality its clients have come to expect would require an experienced team to facilitate such a rendering. The Security Consulting Discipline represents over twenty years of such experience encompassing areas of security design for office high-rise facilities, international airports, resort hotels, hospital and healthcare facilities, major college campuses, convention centers, and governmental facilities. In addition, an established global network of systems manufacturers, integrators, and technology sources are immediately available for use in achieving the proper design, technology application, and security programs desired by the client.

Security in today’s world has become an integral part of the design and construction process. SM&W’s Security Discipline is staffed with professionals whose backgrounds represent over seventy years of experience within the security field.  This combination of experience is an important factor as with our carefully selected staff, the knowledge gained both prior and subsequent to world events have enabled our professional consultants and designers to incorporate both established security solutions as well as cutting edge integrations using the latest technology.

SM&W’s design approach provides clear goals and statements that define the objectives of the security program and associated security systems required as part of the integrated solution.  This approach enables our security program development to incorporate important concepts too often overlooked in the design process.  The information gathered is compiled from a variety of sources and includes, but is not limited to, definitions of the operational functions of a facility, organizational past history, demographics of the surrounding areas, verifiable and perceived vulnerabilities, and other impacts that the facility may have on its surroundings.  This is a key procedure that has a direct impact on the types of security recommended, the technology employed, and the budgetary impact of the security applications.

An effective security design balances common sense approaches with layered protective measures. It is based on evaluating risks and threats, establishing design parameters, and assessing how these will affect the building, personnel, and operations of the business.  We employ a range of approaches security assessments and master planning to the provision of technical designs utilizing access control and alarm management systems, intrusion detection, video security surveillance, and physical barriers.
