NEW YORK—The World Trade Center security team of engineers from Ducibella, Venter & Santore and integrators from Diebold spend a lot of time together.

And, with the Sept. 11 opening of the Memorial site approaching, longer days along with unofficial dinner and breakfast meetings are increasingly common.
