What a blast

As a specialist in blast design for some 12 years or more I can attest that in the UK both government and commercial clients have been very concerned with blast loading, especially in connection with defence and aviation projects, for many years before 9/11.

The IRA experience to which Mr Lay refers has given the UK considerable expertise in this field, which is being applied to many projects both in the UK and abroad.

As to whether the increased cost of blast protection is worthwhile, it is my experience that clients that have been previously affected by terrorist attacks will consider that it is.
