The bunker entrance

Symantec's U.K. operations center is in a bunker built by the British government in the early 1990s to shelter key utilities workers in the event of a nuclear attack. The entrance is set into a hill near Winchester, England.

Bunker airlock

The airlock door is monitored round the clock by a digital camera. Closed circuit TV cameras give a 360-degree view of the outside of the bunker and have 30 days of digitally recorded back-up.

Guenter Roeck

Blast doors lead into the bunker. They were designed to minimize the shock waves caused by a nuclear explosion. The air inside the bunker is pressurized to 1.5 pounds per square inch greater than the external air pressure, to stop unfiltered air from entering.
