Site security is a major concern in today’s unpredictable world. Public spaces and facilities are susceptible to accidental as well as deliberate vehicle infringement. Although design professionals must now be increasingly sensitive to site safety and security, these requirements also provide opportunities to enhance the design and functionality of a space.

This course covers the essentials of selecting security bollards that provide adequate protection while adding exceptional aesthetic value to a project. This course first examines the needs of a modern outdoor environment and how an assessment can be completed to evaluate a project’s security needs. Next, the course will cover common testing standards as well as the necessary foundation engineering options required to meet those standards. Finally, the course highlights lighting and material options that can be selected to integrate seamlessly into the design of a landscape.

This program is presented as part of Maryland ASLA's Lunchtime Learning series. Tickets are available for virtual or in-person attendance. Lunch will be provided for in-person attendees.
