The article discusses the use of set-back distance as part of security strategies for buildings in the United States. The US Defense Department has ruled that all defense facilities within a controlled perimeter must have a minimum set-back of 25 meters from roadways and parking lots. In cases where minimum set-backs can not be met, set-back limitations can be offset with engineering strategies.
