GUIDELINES on MEASURES TO MITIGATE EFFECTS OF TERRORIST ATTACKS ON BUILDINGS

In recent years, there has been considerable concern about the terrorism. It seems that the society must learn to cope with hazards of terrorism as it does with natural disaster. At present, not much is available to an architect or an engineer in terms of guidance on how some features of planning, design and construction can have far reaching implications on the safety of the building and its occupants in the event of a future attack by a terrorist. It is with this view, that these Guidelines on mitigation of effects of terrorist attack on buildings have been developed.
