RIBA welcomes Home Office guidance on protecting crowded spaces

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) have welcomed guidance published today by the Home Office, advising how protective security measures can be incorporated intelligently into both new and existing public access buildings and open spaces, whilst ensuring that they are of the highest design quality.

As part of the suite of documents released today, ‘Protecting Crowded Places: Design and Technical Issues’ features design and technical counter-terrorism protective security guidance of particular interest to architects and designers and their clients. The Institute will shortly be publishing its own guidance for architects and built environment professionals, informing them of the practical changes taking place in the planning system, which will require them to consider counter-terrorism in design.
