Join us for a senior level conference discussing design, construction,
3d visualisation, future planning and key counter terrorism
initiatives for the built environment.
Having already been commissioned by the National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO) to produce a 3d animated video to support the promotion of the Vulnerability Self-Assessment Tool (VSAT) – a project to assist owners, operators and those responsible for the security of crowded places in minimising their potential exposure to terrorist attacks – we will be joining a wide range of leading built environment and security organisations at the one-day Designing for Counter-Terrorism conference.
Driven by the Home Office, and organised in partnership with the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), Designing for Counter-Terrorism brings together government ministries and agencies, occupiers and built environment professionals to discover how new policy will affect their treatment of security and resilience.
The conference will explore a range of design issues in relation to counter terrorism, including:
- An overview of the key points in the government’s policy and guidance for safer places
- The benefits of incorporating security early on in the design process
- Why 3d city models can empower policy making
- Protective security: why and where it matters
- Technologies of resilience: Materials and structural design
- The final debate: “Is security at odds with the public space?
Stewart Bailey, Virtual Viewing’s MD, will deliver a presentation as part of the conference – Virtual Reality: Protection with visualisations – that will address a number of key issues where virtual reality and 3d City Modelling can be deployed to support a range of professions in assessing and reducing public risk:
- How can VR help us understand the risk in the real world?
- How scenario planning can be visualised and trained for
- Making CT guidance more accessible
- Multiple scenarios, multiple threats, one model
