With a cost of over £800 million per year from theft from construction sites (excluding vandalism costs), it’s clear that supporting construction sites with their security efforts is not only helpful but a necessity to all construction contractors.
So, how can theft and vandalism impact your construction site?
- Timely delays
- High insurance premiums
- Costly repairs and replacements
- Potential safety implications
We’re fully aware of the demand for affordable housing in the UK and therefore support new developments across the country, and can do so with affordable, quality security services that can help you stay on budget and on schedule with your build.
CCTV camera management
If you don’t already have CCTV in place, we can support you with recommendations and installation advice – such as where CCTV would have the best impact. We also offer a CCTV monitoring service, with trained security officers that can react promptly to anything suspicious caught on CCTV.
Concrete blockades and secure perimeters
Securing your perimeters is the first line of defence when it comes to construction site security. With many housing developments being built on the outskirts of towns and villages, involving first clearing the ground, it isn’t uncommon that traveling communities or fly-tippers might take advantage. Concrete blockades prevent vehicles from gaining access, removing the risk of these particular problematic issues.
On-site security guards, including manned guarding and mobile patrols
Finally, we have our security guards – all of whom hold a valid SIA license and will be clearly in uniform and with a clearly branded van from our fleet if necessary. Security officers are a great deterrent to crime, but we are trained to respond quickly, calling the local authorities when appropriate.
If you’re looking to further your career within the security industry, please check the careers page on our website or email us an up-to-date copy of your C.V. We never subcontract, we invest in training and we work hard to support our staff. We look forward to meeting you.
Alternatively, for more information on how we can work advise you on our manned guarding security service, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with a member of our team. We look forward to hearing from you.
