BRE Global attended the first UK Security Expo at Olympia in London on 30 November-1 December, to promote the LPCB Fire and Security certification brand. The exhibition was supported by the Home Office and other government security departments, and was opened by former UK Security Minister, Admiral Lord West.
The wide range of conference sessions covered: transport, major events, designing out terrorism, global counter terrorism, protecting crowded places and critical national infrastructure. BRE Global gave presentations on the new SABRE security risk assessment scheme and on developments to the physical security scheme - LPS 1175, and promoted our ballistics scheme.
Scheme Manager, Gavin Jones, promoted the SABRE scheme for certificating security risk assessments for buildings and infrastructure - the first of its kind - at the ‘Designing out Terrorism’ conference. Our Physical Security Scheme Manager, Richard Flint, outlined planned developments to LPS 1175, Requirements and testing procedures for the LPCB approval and listing of intruder resistant building components, strongpoints, security enclosures and free-standing barriers, at the ‘Critical National Infrastructure’ conference.
Both presentations attracted audiences of around 100 people, and led to further, more specific discussions between conference attendees and Gavin and Richard when they were back at the BRE Global stand. Our Ballistics scheme was also promoted on the stand, where there was a good level of interest especially from some of our current LPCB certificated clients.
We were able to network with representatives from a number of key UK and international projects, among which both SABRE and LPS 1175 were of great interest. These projects are of a sensitive nature so can’t be discussed, but it is gratifying to know that LPCB schemes are likely to be used to reduce their security risks.
