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.

Major Insurance Company Computer Campus – Great Valley

Client concerned about terrorist or saboteur strike. We identified above ground basement ventilation vents as possible intake of poisonous gas and specified how to protect.

Food Distributor – Philadelphia

Despite tall wall, vandals were able to enter yard and get out again. Our solution was simply to park the box type trucks front-in to wall instead of rear-in to wall, thus removing what amounted to a ladder from bumper to hood to top of truck and out.

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.

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.

Car Dealership – Ardmore

A sign directed customers to park in rear of building in a congested area. Yet, in pulling in, a car could be confronted by a delivery truck backing out blindly in the single traffic lane pattern. We recommended enforcing policy of one-way traffic only and some simple devices to assure this. We also recommended having their suppliers sign a policy regarding this and supply certificates of insurance.

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.

Restaurant – Wilmington DE

A highly successful restaurant along waterfront had walkway outside with dome lights, approximately 8” high, grey color, directly on sidewalk. This was a tripping hazard for any inattentive guest walking in a group or talking over their shoulder. We recommended that a railing be installed above the series of lights to guard against this. 

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.

Private Executive Estate – Montgomery County

Existing burglar alarm installed by a leading major alarm company had radio backup dialer if telephone wires were cut. The telephone wires were plainly accessible from ground level. During a break-in, the telephone wires were cut and the radio backup did not work. The system was not “supervised” meaning there was no indication of wires being cut or radio not functioning. We were contacted following break-in and per our recommendation, the home owner rerouted telephone wires to enter at attic level, not ground level. We identified that the radio dialer was the wrong type to function in the non air-conditioned space where it was located, the glass break sensor was on wrong wall, and a motion sensor was in the wrong location. A “mock strike” by the original alarm company would have revealed these deficiencies without the loss of over $200,000 in uninsured collector’s valuables, and the anguish and the time associated.

Low Income Housing – Vineland NJ

Housing unit had controlled access motorized slide gates but unauthorized cars would tailgate in behind the tenants’ car.  We installed cameras with status alert from gate activation.
