    The importance of construction site security

    Times are tough in this post-pandemic world making construction sites vulnerable to people turning to crime who view them as easy targets. As a result the construction industry across Europe and in the UK has been experiencing a crime wave. Theft of materials, machinery and tools has escalated reently resulting in huge financial losses, time delays and general inconvenience.

    Construction site security is more crucial than ever before. Is it time to tighten your site security arrangements?

    Our Construction Security Services

    Construction Site Security Risk Assessments

    Do you have a site security plan specific to your project? Our fully trained security auditors can analyse your construction site and recommend the appropriate and most cost-effective security measures to eliminate many of the main security risks. Construction site security risk assessments identify the key dangers to your site including theft, vandalism and safety issues

    Key Holding and Alarm Response

    Working alongside our security monitoring services we can provide mobile response teams that react to suspicious events and alarm triggers. Our rapid reaction services aim to intervene much quicker than the statutory services. We can provide key holding services to provide easy access to your site outside of working hours should an emergency arise.

    CCTV & Remote Monitoring

    Remote monitoring provides a lower-cost alternative to onsite security guards. CCTV can provide real-time monitoring of a contstruction site and help deter theft or vandalism. Our central monitoring services mean that there is always a trained professional looking out for suspicious acvtivity on your building site and standing by to alert the authorities or dispatch one of our own emergency response teams.

    Mobile Security Patrols

    Titan Security mobile patrols carry out regular high visibilty visits to your construction site. We make a detailed inspection of the perimeter to ensure that it has not been compromised. Working to centrally monitored patrol patterns, real time reporting allows us to introduce flexibility into the schedule, change routes and respond at speed to issues as they occur.

    Static Guards & Access Control

    Funnelling all entry and exit to and from the site to a single point is important to ensure all access is authorised. From implementing ID card-based access control systems monitored by static security guards through to fence, barrier and gate installation, we provide a complete access control service that ensures that people only gain entry to the premises if they are authorised. This deters crime and helps ensure safety standards are met.

    Physical Security Measures

    After conducting a security audit of your construction site we might identify physical measures that will enhance security. Recommendations might include prominent signage, fences barriers and gates, secure storage containers, floodlighting and alarm or monitoring system upgrades.. Titan security is pleased to be in the best position to contract for physical security installation alongside our security guard services

    The statistics

    A 2020 survey conducted by the CIOB entitled Crime in the Construction Industry found that 92% of construction companies have been directly affected by crime with 21% reporting that their sites are targeted on a weekly basis. Theft and vandalism in the UK construction industry totalled 800 million pounds with the most common reported incidents involving theft of tools and construction materials.

    Increased demand for second-hand and black market tools and machinery has made the construction industry even more attractive to thieves—resulting in a 50% increase in this type of crime last year. Things are not expected to improve anytime soon. In fact many experts are predicting that things will get worse.

    Case Studies

    Banking Firm London

    The client, having identified a need for security, having previously not had any was based in access-controlled offices. Due to several incidents where persons in the shared office building had let non-authorised personnel in, the client felt the time had come to have a physical presence which would work as a deterrent. We advised that placing guards at the entrance to the building and developing the concierge role to encompass a signing in book was essential. We also introduced wanding whereby persons coming in building were checked for potential weapons or objects that could be used to cause harm. This type of practise is optional and some clients we work with prefer this not to happen however in government concierges we have supplied this is often mandatory. The guard has joined the team and works in tandem with reception staff for access control, providing a first point of contact for the bank’s staff and customers alike whilst keeping the site secure. Since the introduction no incidents have been reported at site and the customer has praised our guard.
