dc.description.abstract This thesis examines the implications of design for physical security in office buildings within the context of the present and anticipated scene in New Zealand. It has been produced for the purposes of documenting and reorientating a subject that is considered relatively unfamiliar but of considerable importance to the practice of architecture. It examines the need for design for physical security and demonstrates that it is largely the responsibility of architects, indicating that they have the greatest influence and ability to incorporate what is considered an essential utility service, in an innovative, effective and attractive manner by early consideration at the design stages. Background material on related topics such as risk management, security costs, regulations, and on building users, is offered in conjunction with a detailed presentation on the application of architectural planning and design, modern techniques and devices. The major section on design for physical security covers topics such as perimeter protection, site protection, the building fabric, interior design and security lighting, as well as security personnel, alarms and closed circuit television. The design section is cross referenced to the appendices where doors, locks, hardware and access control systems are described in considerable detail. The architectural implications, drawn from the findings of this investigation, are reviewed in the conclusions. en_NZ
