This publication explains the principles and concepts of design for inherent security, as applied to non-residential buildings. This contrasts with a conventional assumption that security is a matter of 'add-on' measures, a problem that architects can pass on to specialists or manufacturers. Inherent security has much more important and interesting architectural implications: the inherent security of a building and its occupants depends on site layout, the planning of the building and its detailed design such as the location of doors and windows, control of movement and access, and the exploitation of natural or 'informal' human surveillance. These are more or less permanent features and defects in inherent security cannot be fixed by add-on devices. Where possible the advice is based on research findings, and augmented by what seem to be reasonably reliable practice. As well as helping architects, building owners and users in the design of new or refurbishment projects, this guide is also intended to increase awareness of the all-pervasive relevance of security in design and stimulate further research.
