Virginia Tech -Department of Urban Affairs and Planning, Alexandria Center


Balancing security concerns and good design principles is one of the most challenging aspects of planning and development today. Must security and design excellence be competing interests? According to many national experts, the answer is no!

This course is designed for professionals in the fields of planning, architecture, landscape architecture, development, public administration and facilities management. Over two days of instruction, leading practitioners will present:

• The latest knowledge on risk assessment and how it drives design
• Innovative, award winning perimeter security strategies
• Cutting-edge techniques for designing site-appropriate security solutions
• Up-to-date information on public agency requirements and guidelines
• High profile public and private sector case studies from around the world

The course will also include a half-day bus tour, offering a first-hand look at the variety of approaches used in the nation's capital. The tour will highlight the area covered by the National Capital Planning Commission's award-winning National Capital Urban Design and Security Plan.
