Building and Infrastructure Protection Series [HSDL Holdings]   [open html - 82KB]

This Homeland Security Digital Library (HSDL) list contains documents of the Department of Homeland Security's "Building and Infrastructure Protection Series: Designing Buildings to Withstand Almost Anything." From the Department of Homeland Security website: "A new publication series, aimed at engineers, architects, building owners, city planners, and emergency managers, makes available years of government, industry, and academic research on designs and materials to make buildings and tunnels terror-'resistant' and terror-'resilient.' The Building and Infrastructure Protection Series (BIPS) provides architects and engineers a set of aids for designing critical infrastructure to withstand all kinds of hazards…at a cost that won't break the budget. 'This series lays the foundation for designing a new generation of resilient buildings,' says Mila Kennett, who oversees the series in S&T's [Science and Technology Directorate] Infrastructure Protection and Disaster Management Division, where she leads the Structural Resilience Branch. An architect by training, Kennett came from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), where she edited a similar publication series after 9/11. Several of the BIPS guides expand upon and update her highly regarded FEMA guides."
