Effective consulting identifies real, practical problems in structures, practices, policies of operation and behavior that are “accidents waiting to happen” or security breaches that have systematically been missed.

Medium Security Prison – West Chester PA

A beautiful $1,800 lock device prevented escape except that a little $3 part totally defeated this security and a prisoner could escape with no sign of how they did it.

Real Estate Developer – Philadelphia Jobsite

A jobsite at Temple University bordering dense residential neighborhood had a temporary fence to protect deep excavation pit, but fence panels on uneven ground had up to 10” gaps below them to ground — plenty of room for a child to slip through. This is typical of a small detail that goes unobserved which can lead to multi-million dollar liability and tragedy.

Art Museum - Wilmington

An outdoor contemporary sculpture was made from plastic milk crates forming a 30’ high double arch. Concern is that this is like an inviting piece of playground equipment and children could climb and fall off. Each crate had an opening as a hand grip. We recommended filling the open grip spaces for the first 8’ or 10’ from ground to deter climbing.

Utility Company – Philadelphia

Utility owned an abandoned coal pier on the Delaware River. They decided to not go forward with a half-million dollar security project they bid out to protect pier from riverboat pirates. We observed their bigger risk, which they had missed, was kids on dirtbikes entering from landside into a very hazardous area. 

Restaurant/ Bar – Wildwood NJ

Outdoor bar patio area elevated 10’ above concrete sidewalk. A 30” high wall surrounded edge, always used for sitting upon. A guest was shoved over wall by another guest who attacked him. Defense position was business owner not responsible for criminal acts on property. Our position was wall was not to code (42” height) and owner should have anticipated problems from drinking and fights, given this hazard. The case was settled for millions.

Women’s Prison – NJ

Prisoners could not escape on their own but any confederate of theirs on the outside could readily get them out with little risk of detection.

Mini-Storage Facility – Philadelphia

Despite fences, razor ribbon and burglar alarms, thieves in this bad neighborhood kept penetrating from the rear of the facility. We recommended paying or rewarding the neighboring residents whose houses overlooked this area for reporting if they saw anything.

Parking Garage – Philadelphia

Pedestrians were repeatedly walking up the cars-only down ramp, at risk for being struck. We recommended a system to detect people and prevent this. At another location with valet parking where valets would often speed, we recommended a system to monitor car speed and identify problem valets.

Car Dealership – Philadelphia

We observed that a 60’ lamppost was missing three of the four nuts on the bolts that hold post to its base, creating a very dangerous situation where the lamppost could have fallen onto Roosevelt Boulevard.

Lodge and Restaurant – Lake Louise, Canadian Rockies

Hallway had transition that was not to code, consisting of a single step 1 ¾” high. We recommended installing ramp of 1:10 slope and side railing to meet code, and also directing spotlight onto area and painting contrasting color on riser. Other walkways had slope less than 1:10. We recommended painting light colored band of flowers or patterns and directing light onto area as temporary measure, and correcting slope as permanent measure.
