Structural Mitigation Strategies
Window Retrofit Assessments

ARA develops strategies for renovation and retrofit of existing buildings and designs new structures to resist potential terrorist attacks. We also develop new innovative protective methods and perform testing of protection products.

Our designs consider the full spectrum of blast, chemical, biological, and radiological threats. We develop mitigation strategies for military and civilian facilities including military bases, federal buildings (offices, courthouses, embassies, etc.), airports, and industrial facilities. Our mitigation strategies are designed to minimize facility damage and maximize occupant safety.
