How we work

Working closely with the client, we apply our experience in weapons effects and knowledge of mitigation measures together with our engineers and designers to advise and present our clients with a body of evidence upon which to select the most beneficial solution that will satisfy the client's mission objective.

Physical Protection Advisory Services

Unlock our experience and expertise.

Clients worldwide have benefited from consultancy and advice provided by our principals and our consultants. Ranging from audits and strategic concepts through to design, project, and construction management, we leverage our multi-disciplinary team and our extensive track record having completed many high-profile projects.

Blast + Ballistic Vulnerability Assessment and Analysis

Helping you to pass the test and future proof your outcomes.

Our threat and vulnerability analysis incorporates the latest methodologies, computational methods, and international standards. Our extensive experience in conducting, participating, and documenting full-scale blast tests provides a unique understanding of risk.

Our expert team have notched up unrivalled practical experience in the understanding of weapons effects on structures which is used to enhance its quality of proposed vulnerability reduction methods.

In addition to specialists in building design and materials science, our inhouse experts include former senior personnel from the UK military and Metropolitan Police Service.

For vulnerability reduction proposals, we conduct a Quantitative Risk Design Optimisation Analysis that allows the client to better understand possible options and their impact on the project schedule, cost, risk, and performance. Our Risk Based Design Optimisation method has proven repeatedly that designing the protection within a wider context of the project, including for example Hostile Vehicle Mitigation, resulted in a significant cost reduction and increased efficiency.

Hostile Vehicle Mitigation

Keeping you on the move

Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM) is a protective security discipline focussing on reducing risks associated with vehicle borne threats posed by terrorists and criminals, and where appropriate, is included in our Quantitative Risk Design Optimisation Analysis and Risk Based Design Optimisation. HVM is the effective delivery of measures that are informed by the threat and how it manifests itself, the multiple consequences of an attack, the vulnerability of a given location and the needs of the enterprise requiring protection. The bases of HVM are security risk assessments, security planning, and design and the deployment of risk-based measures. HVM Measures are the integrated deployment of security processes, procedures and physical obstructions to counter vehicle borne threats. They include but are not limited to; deterrent communications, security awareness, incident response planning and training, operational security, and the deployment of physical obstructions such as vehicle security barriers.

Specialist Architectural consultancy and planning

Building on safety

Our portfolio includes a range of built assets from tall buildings in urban settings and transport hubs to critical infrastructure and military facilities. Led by our principal Architectural Blast and Design Consultant, our team Enspire Solutions has performed protective design consultancy services for various design projects worldwide.

  • Initiating, managing, and executing in-house R&D programmes.

Research and Development

Centre of Excellence

As an innovation-led company, Research and Development is part of our DNA. It is at the core of what we do. Challenging, investigating, and developing new approaches, methodologies and services ensures we remain at the forefront of setting standards in our core market.

Our team have a proven track record of leading and delivering research and development programmes that ultimately shape the future of protection products, services, and solutions.

Our staff have played a leading technical role in performance of multinational R&D programmes for force protection solutions and technologies. Programmes include annual performance of full-scale explosive tests for various government and private organisations. For example, these programmes comprise the coordination, and joint work with the UK Ministry of Defence, The UK Centre of the Protection of National Infrastructure, and the Singapore Ministry of Home Affairs.

Enspire Solutions principals have worked with leading solution provider companies worldwide to initiate, manage, and execute programmes for the development of innovative physical protection solutions. Amongst these are:

  • Ballistic window design
  • Blast resistance glass curtain wall system
  • Retrofit of existing masonry wall to blast and ballistic threats
  • Precast concrete deployable protected structures
  • Blast resistance lightweight wall panel system
  • Retrofit of Windows to mitigate against blast effects
Publicly accessible locations Marauding Firearms Attack risk analysis

Close quarters

The protection of crowded space is inherently difficult as well as being an attractive ‘soft’ target. Enspire Solutions can help you maximise the safety of any space from terrorism through a variety of methods including environmental design and the management of such spaces.

Transport hubs, sports stadia, shopping centres, cinemas and nightclubs are a few spaces that have the capacity to hold large crowds of people, who by virtue of being in that crowd can unfortunately become a target as has been evidenced from around the world.

As a result, developers of these crowded spaces will be expected to pay attention to the safety and security of these areas to ensure they are afforded the maximum protection.

Marauding terrorist attacks (MTA), or close-quarter attacks, are now a known and frequently used terrorist tactic. They can involve the use of firearms or, increasingly, knives and even hazardous substances. Attackers will be drawn to targets with a high human density, as these allow terrorists to be economical and efficient by maximising the number of casualties with a limited amount of ammunition.

Analysis of recent MTA incidents indicates that individuals will react in several ways, thereby making control of an incident challenging.

Although the detection and deterrence of terrorist attacks is the priority, MTA events usually occur with no actionable warning. Organisations must therefore act quickly and correctly to minimise the impact of an incident.

Typically, the strategies adopted will be based around the “Run, Hide, Tell” approach of dynamic lockdown approach.

We have developed and implemented a quantitative risk assessment approach that has enabled clients to make informed decisions on where best to introduce effective mitigation measures. Upon request, Enspire Solutions can also design, manufacture and install bespoke mitigation measures.
