ABSTRACT
There are few countries that can match the experience Israel has in designing protective structures. Military threats to population centers along borders forced Israelis into the field decades ago. Large-scale investments in securing buildings began in the early 1970s. Attacks led to the design and construction of protected rooms in northern Israel's homes, schools and public buildings. Eytan Building Design now is the largest of a handful of Israeli engineering firms specializing in security.
