Comprehensive Security and Risk Management for Aviation Facilities

Comprehensive Security and Risk Management for Aviation Facilities

Security is more than surveillance. It's managing your risk and protecting your assets.

Burns & McDonnell's multidisciplinary risk management approach integrates physical, operational, structural and cybersecurity components.

That approach, combined with our comprehensive knowledge of aviation facility design and function, ensures a customized solution for your aviation facility security needs.

Experience Makes the Difference

As an industry leader in airport planning, program management and design, Burns & McDonnell applies more than 65 years of experience to evaluate and minimize your risk. Your custom security solution integrates physical, operational, structural and cyber asset protection for your military or commercial aviation operation.

Your security needs are assessed, designed, implemented and operated with the practical application of antiterrorism concepts for buildings, including the Building Security Rating System developed by the Building Security Council.

Our comprehensive understanding of airport and aviation facility design and functionality ensures that your system is practical, efficient and appropriate for your task, as well as secure for the protection of your assets.
