FORTRESS Protective Buildings was developed from recognizing the opportunity of a gap in available options for a multi-hazard resistant building with a high degree of protection -- there was no option for a turnkey solution that can be quickly installed onsite.  For BakerRisk, a company focused on assisting clients with risk mitigation solutions, FORTRESS provides an alternative option to the traditional purpose-built building to truly protect site personnel.

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

FORTRESS has partnered with Tindall to provide the manufactured modules per BakerRisk’s proprietary design.  Tindall’s wealth of experience designing, detailing, producing, and installing thousands of precast modules and buildings/industrial structures across North America ensures FORTRESS is manufactured to the high-quality expectations of our clients.

At FORTRESS Protective Buildings, we went beyond designing a modular building that will remain structurally sound after a blast event - we designed a modular building to have negligible occupant vulnerability from blast, fragment, thermal, and toxic design basis events. Modular construction ensures reduced onsite construction time, total project duration, overall installation costs, and site risk exposure over traditional purpose-built buildings.
