By incorporating security into building design, self-builders can save money and ensure that their security needs are being met. Banham Locksmith Services finds out more…

Access control, intruder alarms and CCTV coverage are among an assortment of security solutions available on today’s market. Banham Locksmith Services believes that the choice between these measures can be made simpler if they are considered during the planning stages of the new-build process.

Whilst bollards and other preventative methods can be implemented to protect a property, it is recommended that technical methods are utilised in addition to these.

By considering security measures after their building’s completion, self-builders risk having to make costly changes to ensure that their new home caters for their needs. Banham argues that security is a priority, which should be introduced into the design as early as possible.

Meeting security needs

The company, which has been providing security solutions for the past 100 years, has recently benefited from a new build establishment, which was completed in August 2015; it ensured that security was considered as a set of architectural features throughout the design and construction.

By incorporating relevant security facilities into the design of its building, Banham was able to create a suitable space, rather than attempting to force-fit their security measures in post-build.

It is important to decide where security equipment will be stored ahead of time; factors such as optimum placement of security cameras should be communicated to the architect to enable them amend their designs.

General risk assessments should be conducted during the design process to discuss security measures with both architectural teams and security teams; this ensures that all bases are covered before the design process can begin.
