Use your security dollars wisely!

A fundamental knowledge of how security related facility projects are done is key to a  project’s success. Understanding the design and construction process and its related documentation enhances your value as an educated facilities security program team member.

This intensive, two-day program offers a detailed look at how facilities and projects are documented today. Whether you are trying to work with a local security vendor on a specific upgrade or helping the facilities department create a new facility from the ground up, the language of project documentation can be daunting to the un-initiated security professional.

  • The need to understand how your project is defined is a crucial factor in how the project will proceed along with its chance of success.
  • Underestimating the design phase is critical to the bottom line since it’s the most cost effective point in the project process to integrate security measures.
  • Understanding the bidding/contract process and the basic contractual relationships help facility security professionals know what options are industry standard.

Learn from leading security design architects, engineers, and security experts as they share their experiences in completing cost-effective facility security designs and projects.

 Program Overview

Project Management
Key throughout the document process is project management. Document management is an operation that has numerous phases which have direct impact on security design and infrastructure and that need to be managed appropriately to fulfill the scope, time, and cost as well as the return on investment of the project. Focus will be made on each of the nine areas critical to successfully completing proper document management: Project Integration Management, Project Scope Management, Project Time Management, Project Cost Management, Project Quality Management, Project Human Resources Management, Project Communications Management, Project Risk Management, and Project Procurement Management.
Project Pre-Design Phase
From defining the scope of work to knowing how to develop a request for proposal or qualification, the need to understand what and how your project is defined is a crucial factor in how the project will proceed along with its chance of success.
Project Phase
How projects are documented in today’s construction industry remains a mystery to many security professionals. In a world where industry specialization is still the norm, the ability to understand how your security program is impacted by today’s design and documentation methods will enhance your ability to integrate your security measures at the most cost effective point in the project process—during design.
Bidding / Contract Phase
From how the project is put “out to bid” to defining the roles and responsibilities of all the various parties, bidding and contracts can be confusing. Understanding the process and the basic contractual relationships will help facility security professionals know what options are industry standard.
Security Consultant
What role does the security consultant serve? What should a security program expect from the security consultant in both assistance and documentation?
Security Program Integration
Gain exposure to the approach and techniques of systems integration that are applied during the design and construction stages. Learn how they affect your security program and master plan.
Security System Documentation
Review the major aspects of design documentation and learn how to manage the preparation of design deliverables.
Managing Project Changes
Learn how to deal with the impact of the inevitable changes in requirements, scope, budgets, and/or changes in direction.
Completing the Process
Address procurement—the bid and selection process, evaluation criteria, successful bid negotiation, and project award techniques—before moving on to construction administration.
