SBD has worked with UC Berkeley on several projects. The Doe/Moffitt Libraries project connected an existing seven-story library with an existing five-story library via a new two-story subterranean library stacks section. The security work included criteria for CPTED (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design) issues as well as control versus life safety design work.

The systems were tied into the campus systems to the University Police. The campus was undergoing some changes in system technology during this design period, and SBD helped to finalize several open issues of large-scale implementation.

Security By Design designed a building security system that included access control, alarm monitoring and CCTV. SBD prepared biddable specifications and provided support to ensure that the installed system met the requirements specified in the contract documents.

SBD engineered the security system to interface with the book tagging system providing an audit trail for the libraries. This approach was new and unique to the system.

SBD also worked with the libraries at UC Berkeley in its Rare Books Library. The Rare Books Library included one large collection in the Doe Library building and five other sites on campus. Each was surveyed and systems designed to fit the unique character and needs of the collections. Special care was taken with the design so that the systems would not cause deterioration of the old manuscripts and books and other rare artifacts.
