Securing your construction site is important for any business looking to prevent the loss of valuable tools and machinery and keep the public and their workers safe. Cerberus provides professional construction site security services for organisations and businesses all across the UK, ranging from construction site CCTV monitoring to site access control and turnstiles. Find out more about how we can ensure your building or construction site will remain secure and deter trespassing in the first place through a range of preventative security measures.
Our Building Site Security Services
Construction and building sites are often a magnet for theft and trespassing due to the high value equipment often kept on site. Our security services can tightly control access to your construction site, while deterring unwanted visitors.
It is essential for all construction sites to implement security measures to protect their equipment from break ins and theft, especially where hazardous materials, unstable structures and exposed wiring may be present.
We will undertake a thorough risk assessment of your construction site to determine the security weaknesses and the procedures and equipment we recommend installing to keep your building site secure 24/7, whether manned or unmanned.
This includes CCTV monitoring, temporary security systems, open and lock up and site access control – but all security services will be considered following an audit to give your construction site the protection it needs. Find out more about our building site security services below.
Construction site CCTV Monitoring and Temporary Security Systems
Comprehensive CCTV installation and monitoring not only provides a clear visual deterrent to any would-be trespassers, but is monitored 24/7 by trained professionals, assessing security alerts for false alarms and ready to notify police or dispatch security personnel at a moment’s notice.
An initial audit is used to determine key areas that need to be monitored for your site, along with any potential weak points that should be monitored and secured in combination with other security measures we recommend.
All CCTV is monitored in real-time by security personnel at our dedicated Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC), which has been accredited to Gold Standard by the UK’s National Security Inspectorate.
As a construction site, you will benefit most from our temporary CCTV systems. These can be installed within 30 minutes of arriving on site, and for construction sites in remote locations or with limited access to power, solar-powered CCTV towers can be installed for effective and reliable monitoring regardless of your power requirements. These systems require little maintenance and can be taken down at a moment’s notice, providing 360-degree coverage to help make your construction site secure from every angle.
Open and Lock Up Services & Construction Site Access Control
Our open and lock up services are perfect for construction sites which need to remain secure at specified times. Our team can ensure your site is secured when you need it and opened and closed at the required times to keep all staff and equipment safe.
Following the closure of your building site, a Cerberus staff member will ensure all staff have left and the site is secured prior to setting the alarm system.
Our staff will also be there to open up the site at whatever time your business needs to ensure workers can access the site when they need to while keeping the area secure.
For construction sites, we typically recommend installing a turnstile cabin with a manned security office. This can also be combined with biometric and keycard reader access controls. Our building site access control system takes the burden of signing in and out away from staff and is fully insurance approved for your business’ peace of mind.
