Blocks to stop vehicle attacks

by Brian Sims

Townscape Products is helping to safeguard London’s latest skyscraper, 20 Fenchurch Street, against the threat of terrorism installing six bespoke PAS 68 Counter Terror (CT) Blocks, designed to stop vehicle-based attacks. Townscape was enlisted by security engineering consultants, QCIC, to develop a tailored perimeter security solution which would not only protect the building from hostile vehicle attacks, but also create an urban landscape at the base of the property. Jonathan Goss, managing director of Townscape said:” 20 Fenchurch Street will attract thousands of visitors each year, so a hostile vehicle mitigation (HMV) system was needed to defend the building, whilst also provide an open and inclusive perimeter. Townscape worked with Gormley Masonry Services to develop and install six PAS 68 CT Blocks, which are topped with granite and include LED lighting on the sides.
