Tetra Tech’s High Performance Buildings Group provides expert engineering services for security controls and systems, ensuring that people and assets are always kept safe.

Security of assets, people, information, equipment and reputation is crucial for all businesses. Tetra Tech’s expertise in developing detailed engineering plans for security controls and systems allows us to assist clients to ensure staff and assets are always protected.

Our security engineering services result from applying risk and threat analysis methodologies. We work with clients to help them clarify and prioritize their security requirements. We thoroughly analyze and assess perceived and actual risk using the global ISO31000 risk management process before recommending security countermeasures matched to the entity security environment and operations.

All aspects of business security should be aligned, and we work with clients so that available budgets are appropriately allocated to provide the best possible security solutions. Tetra Tech’s security experts guide and support clients to select optimal solutions to treat risk exposures. Our teams manage and coordinate projects from inception, through design and installation, and into operation. Tetra Tech’s security team is committed to ensuring solutions are provided in the most practical and efficient manner, consistent with global security best practices.

Tetra Tech has operated a specialist security group for well over two decades, providing security planning, advisory and design services for some of the highest profile organizations and projects in Asia, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
