by Hinman Team & Brian Katz

Early this year, the new Department of Defense Anti-terrorism/Force Protection (AT/FP) standards (UFC 4-010-01) were adopted.  The stated impact of the document on new and existing construction is “most of the changes should result in cost savings or no change in costs”.  Over a series of blog posts, I will explore the implications of this new criteria to determine if this intent is indeed the reality.
