Building Terrorism Mitigation – Site Layout and Design
This PDH online course is a part of the Civil course category. This course discusses site-level considerations for development as mitigation measures against building terrorism. The intent of this course is to provide concepts for integrating land use planning, landscape architecture (vegetation, landforms, and water), site planning, and other strategies to mitigate the design basis threats as identified via the risk assessment. Integrating security requirements into a larger, more comprehensive approach necessitates achieving a balance among many objectives such as reducing risk; facilitating proper building function; aesthetics and matching architecture; hardening of physical structures beyond required building codes and standards; and maximizing use of non-structural systems.
This course is intended for use by architects, building planners, landscape architects, civil, mechanical and structural engineers, and construction professionals and others interested in learning about mitigation of terrorism risks through site planning and design.
Upon completion of this course, you will:
- Understand the importance and basis of site planning, such as site design, layout and form, vehicular and pedestrian circulation, infrastructure, landscape and urban design
- Learn about stand-off distance and us in the design process
- Learn about controlled access zones
- Learn about the importance of signage, parking, loading docks, service access and lighting design
- Understand how to protect site utilities
- Understand basics of site mitigation measures and crime prevention through environmental design

Very interesting topic
good overview of things to consider when designing a site that might need more security than a typical site.
