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 construction 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-visibility 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

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.

Building Site Security Case Studies
City Construction Site Security Breach
A construction site for a large development in a city suffered major losses after a theft during the night when the site was left unattended. A representative of the company that suffered the losses reached out to us for help.
The site was occupied enough throughout the day with workers so the representative was not concerned with security throughout the day. Their main concern was the security of the site when left unoccupied overnight, especially considering the recent theft.
We placed static guards on the site overnight and also suggested the setting up of CCTV to be monitored by our 24/7 control room. Between these two measures, there were no further problems on the site, and we hope to work with the same company again in the future.
Alarm installation and remote monitoring
After construction work was temporarily shut down on a site, the company in charge of the construction grew concerned about the security of the site while it was left vacant for so long.
After deciding that an ongoing presence for a vacant building site that was attended most of the day was not the best option Instead, we offered our alarm response services and arranged the installation of an alarm on the site, connected to our control room. In the event that the alarm was tripped, one of our guards would be sent straight to the site to check on it and deal with any issues.
Once construction was back up and running with the site, the client decided to keep the alarm service going for any time the property was left vacant. We are still working with the client today.
