Seminar on blast mitigation in buildings

TPS Consult : 12 September, 2008  (New Product)
Counter Terrorism seminar from TPS Consult to be held in Edinburgh covering blast protection in built environments
Seminar on blast mitigation in buildings
A counter terrorism security seminar and Q&A session hosted by The Security Consulting Group at TPS (part of Carillion) is to be held at the Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh, on September 18th 2008.

The seminar will cover bomb blast and hostile vehicle mitigation measures for the built environment, critical national infrastructure and crowded places, and will follow the themes laid down in the security review conducted by the Government's Security Minster, Lord West. The event will look at the latest thinking and best practice on the protection of buildings and occupiers from the risk of terrorism.
The seminar will be chaired by Professor Yong Lu, Professor of Structural Mechanics at the Institute for Infrastructure and Environment at Edinburgh University, an acknowledged expert on the effects of blast on buildings.
The event is aimed at corporate security personnel, developers and those with an interest in the protection of the built environment.

"The attack on Glasgow Airport and the attempted attack on the Tiger Tiger night club in London serve to illustrate the nature of the threats we are facing, and further announcements and initiatives are expected to be made by the Government in the coming months regarding counter terrorism measures and the protection of critical infrastructure," said TPS Director of Security Consulting and Explosion Effects, Mark Whyte. "While the scope of these announcements is still subject to speculation, they may include measures to strengthen the protection levels at critical infrastructure sites as well as seeking greater input from the private sector."

Topics covered will include the effects of blast on different types of structure, facades and glazing, counter terrorism measures at the design stage, options for retrospective counter-terrorism measures, and vehicle mitigation measures.
The event follows a successful seminar from TPS on this subject in London earlier this year.
