At 1,250 feet above street level, the 120,000sf observation deck at One World Trade Center is the highest observation platform in the Western Hemisphere.  DVS provided security consulting and engineering services for the facility.  As the security designer for the base building, DVS worked to integrate security for the Observatory with existing systems designs to ensure a complete and cohesive security program for the building. DVS also helped design a state-of-the-art visitor screening area, which includes millimeter wave technology. As part of that effort, DVS evaluated screening throughput data from peer facilities - an effort aimed at providing confidence in the designed size of the screening area and anticipated visitor wait times.
