This picture shows a 6’x14’ guardhouse from the front. This entry will discuss this particular size, however you can get information on any size guard house.
Size: Into what type of business environment will the guard house be placed? Will you need one small guardhouse, one larger guardhouse or perhaps two smaller guard houses? Even if only one small guard house is needed, the layout is still important, which is the next topic.
Layout: As seen in the “Sample Layout” illustration below, the way a guard building is laid out is vital. You may already know exactly how you want your guard building designed and laid out. You may have questions about design or you may change your mind and decide you do or do not want counter tops, certain electrical or a restroom included, which is the next topic.
Restroom: Is the guardhouse the correct size to include a restroom? A restroom in a guardhouse has its own specs as well as plumbing needs to be met outside the structure’s walls at the commercial location. Many factors come into play when considering the design of a guard booth and whether or not to include a restroom. Will the guardhouse be used as more of a ticket booth that requires specific HVAC (heating and air conditioning) requirements in order to keep the interior comfortable for its occupant(s)? The next topic will consider HVAC and electrical.
Electrical: What type of HVAC will be necessary in your guard house? Will you need special electrical for security measures such as monitors, computers, drivers, servers, audio equipment and more? These types of electrical items in a guardhouse must be kept at certain temperatures to maintain reliable performance this topic may be a consideration for you. There is also the fact that a person or people will likely be occupying the guard house or guardbooth during its use and therefore a temperature-controlled environment and certain electrical setups will help add to the comfort level as well.
Sample Layout Illustration:
It makes sense to have a guard house designed and built by a company that has 25+ years in the business, designing and building these unique structures. Guardhouses have to fit the specific needs of the business customer, while maintaining safety and security in a sturdy structure that is well suited for the business environment.
