US Federal Courthouse

Aldo McKay, Principal at PEC, will be leading a webinar on March 9, on the Risk Management Process for Federal Facilities through SE University.

U.S Federal buildings such as courthouses and important federal agencies have special design requirements intended to prevent injury and protect occupant’s lives, as well as protecting assets and preserving operations. For the past years, these requirements were contained in a series of documents issued by the Interagency Security Committee (ISC). In 2013, the Interagency Security Committee (ISC) re-packaged the physical criteria for federal buildings under one document called “The Risk Management Process (RMP) for Federal Facilities”. This document and its six appendices define the criteria and processes required to determine the Facility Security Level (FSL) of a federal facility, and provide a single source of security countermeasures that must be implemented for all non-military Federal facilities in the United States.

This webinar will discuss the intent and application of the latest RMP criteria and will provide architect, engineers, and project managers with examples and guidance of how to implement these requirements in new and existing (retrofit) projects. By attending this webinar, you will gain a better understanding of critical terminology and implementation of security requirements of the ISC such as:

  • FSL, what it means, how is determined?
  • Site security (access control, anti-ram barriers, standoff distances, pedestrian access, etc.)
  • Blast-resistance (façade, windows, mail screening, under building parking, etc.)
  • Progressive collapse
  •  Mail/package handling
  • Other important requirements
