GreenBlast : Protect the Built & Natural Environments

Minimizing terrorist risk with the “power of people”

by Hinman Team

On a recent site visit, two Hinman engineers had a curious experience while taking measurements of windows in an occupied federal building.  Though the engineers were authorized by building maintenance and security to take photographs and measurements, most of the hundreds of employees in the building were not informed of their visitors that day.  Security later informed the Hinman engineers they had received call after call from concerned employees reporting the “suspicious” activity which was taking place outside the building.
