Our expertise and experience allow us to provide the U.S. Government with holistic and integrated security solutions that set us apart from others.
Ensuring the safety of the U.S. Government’s people, infrastructure, assets, and data is vital to our everyday work. Our security design team continually evaluates new technologies in order to stay ahead of the multitude of threats that exist today. We understand the implications of design decisions that are critical to the U.S. government national security mission.
Having worked on federal projects all around the world over our nearly 200 year history, we have provided all-inclusive architectural and engineering services to site and building security. Our teams have tackled issues in extremely high-threat environments and at times, at a moment’s notice.
Mission-critical facilities must be able to maintain operation through extreme weather events, utility disruption, and hostile action. Our team assesses and implements:
Mason & Hanger blast mitigation specialists not only design facilities to prevent or minimize damage from outside forces, but they are also practiced in containing an accidental explosion that might occur in a munitions plant or nuclear facility.
Our first blast projects date back to include the design of detonation towers for the Atomic Energy Commission's Nevada test site and the Saturn V propellant rocket motor testing silos. Many of our projects involve anti-terrorism force protection design for DOD facilities and embassies worldwide. Our structural engineers know how to mitigate risk for the worst scenario.
Mason & Hanger, as a Day & Zimmermann (D&Z) company, is in the unique position of being partnered with security specialists within the Government Services division at D&Z. This alignment provides integrated security solutions in support of national security interests beyond our standard architecture and engineering design services. This partnership gives us a more holistic view of security and provide for comprehensive security solutions.
Due to the mission-driven nature of the facilities we design, we are experts in designing for a host of threats beyond standard physical security considerations. As a full-service architecture and engineering company, Mason & Hanger sets itself apart from other firms in the breadth and depth of our expertise in mitigating these threats.
