B.I.G. announces custom guard booth to protect Washington facilities

B.I.G. Enterprises, Inc., a California-based pre-assembled building development company, announced on Friday the recent design and manufacturing of a custom guard booth to protect facilities near Washington DC.

The new guard booth helps to support security requirements that are part of the new standard in sensitive government areas. The design, which is called The Commonwealth, is a combination of security, architectural integrity, functionality and durability in one pre-fabricated security booth. The attractive and bullet-resistant booth complements the surrounding buildings.

B.I.G. said the new design proves that security booths need not be imposingly monolithic style-wise to be effective.

"We build booths that are essentially 'plug and play' when they're transported and installed on site," David King, the vice president of B.I.G., said. "This approach can add up to significant savings for our customers while providing the highest levels of security-sensitive construction."

B.I.G. designers previously developed unique models for Special Forces departments, nuclear plants, chemical plants, airports, the Smithsonian and all divisions of the U.S. Armed Forces. The company also creates guard shelters that allow for extra protection from chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear threats through a process of filtration and pressurization.

The company also develops cashier booths, portable shelters, guardhouses and custom-made kiosks.
