Safe & secure

Safety and security is of paramount importance in the built environment. There’s no point having a building if its occupants aren’t safe. BuroHappold’s Safe & Secure team work to ensure your facility has a sustainably safe environment for its users.

Establishing safety and security procedures begins at the outset of a project and should continue long after its construction lifecycle has ended. It’s an aspect of design that marries with a basic concept: buildings are for people and it’s vital that those people are safe.

Our Safe & Secure team, work internationally to bring best practice to our projects. With a holistic, fully integrated approach we work independently as safety and security consultants, or with other BuroHappold teams on larger projects. Our experts are highly experienced in local and international legislation and embrace the BuroHappold spirit of innovation that drives our work and exceed expectations.

We also work closely with our Fire Engineering, People Flow and Inclusive Design groups putting people at the heart of the built environment.

To find out more about how we can help your building’s users to be safe, contact your local office or one of our safety and security experts.
