Launch of FORTRESS Protective Buildings, multi-hazard resistant building with turnkey construction

BakerRisk is excited to introduce FORTRESS Protective Buildings, LLC (FORTRESS) as the go-to provider of buildings proven to protect personnel in high-hazard environments. FORTRESS was designed and developed by BakerRisk after recognizing a gap in available options for a multi-hazard resistant building with a high degree of protection for building occupants.

Leveraging BakerRisk’s decades of R&D, investigation of hundreds of incidents, and 35+ years of assisting clients in personnel protection, BakerRisk developed FORTRESS to provide an optimal solution to protect workers from hazards that may be present at industrial facilities handling flammable, toxic, explosive or energetic materials.

The FORTRESS Protective Buildings team went beyond designing a modular building that will remain structurally sound after a blast event. They designed, tested, and constructed a modular building to have negligible occupant vulnerability from blast, fragment, thermal, or toxic hazards. The modular construction of a FORTRESS building ensures reduced onsite construction time and total project duration, lower overall installation costs and site risk exposure versus traditional purpose-built buildings.

FORTRESS provides the only option for a turnkey building solution that can be quickly installed onsite, and that has been supported by full-scale test data. Aligned with BakerRisk’s focus on assisting clients with risk mitigation solutions, FORTRESS provides the industry with a new permanent building option as an expedited solution that will truly protect site personnel from multiple hazards.

In industries where the daily risks of potentially catastrophic events, such as vapor cloud explosions, are a constant concern, there’s no room for compromise – inherently safer design principles, effective hazard identifications and analyses, and adherence to up-to-date industry standards aren’t just important, they’re essential. Since its establishment in 1919, the American Petroleum Institute (API)…
