Construction Site Security

Select Solutions provide bespoke cost effective construction site security solutions on building sites across the UK, helping to protect projects like yours from the ever present threat of theft, vandalism, and trespassing.

We offer a huge range of different security measures to construction site managers that can be put together in any combination to form the perfect building site security strategy to tackle your unique security requirements.

From trained SIA licensed security guards providing a deterrent to intruders in their high visibility jackets to cutting edge CCTV towers that monitor your site 24/7 with no mains electricity required, with Select Solutions you can sleep easy knowing that your projects won’t be derailed by any avoidable security breaches any longer.

When we take responsibility for a new site, one of our construction security team will attend your site to go through the risk assessment process with your site manager. Together they will determine which security measures are required, establish routes for security guards conducting mobile patrols, and discuss any concerns that you may have.

Construction Site Security Threats

Many construction companies in the UK are stuck in a neverending battle to protect their building site from criminal activity.

Select Solutions will help to tip the scales in your favour and dramatically reduce the risk of theft, vandalism, arson, and other anti-social behaviour from putting your assets and staff in danger.

As soon as you arrange construction site security services with Select, we will come to your site in person to conduct a construction site risk assessment, identifying the specific threats that the location and nature of the project bring. We will then design a bespoke construction site security plan to counter these risks.

Some of the universal threats to security on construction sites across the UK include:

Theft and vandalism

It is no surprise that thieves often target construction sites, given the amount of valuable materials, equipment, and tools that can be found on the site. Fuel theft, machinery theft, and theft of copper wiring and other valuable metals are all common occurrences that have the potential to derail any construction project.

Preventing theft and vandalism is a constant battle for the UK construction industry and is the focus of the majority of key duties given to construction site security guards. To prevent theft and vandalism, you need powerful physical security and innovative security systems, and we can provide them all.

Trespassing

Unsecured construction sites are often used by local trespassers as short cuts or for recreational purposes. Even if these people mean no harm they are putting themselves and others in serious danger by being on site without the required safety training or PPE so it is critical that they are dealt with as soon as possible and measures put in place to prevent unauthorised access in the first place.

Accidents involving trespassers can land you in legal trouble if the appropriate action was not taken to secure the site.

Arson

A construction site fire, whether accidental or the work of an arsonist, has the potential to destroy construction projects and put the lives of workers at risk. Arson is the worst nightmare of all construction site managers and putting the right physical security measures in place to prevent intruders from gaining access, alongside remote monitoring to ensure security officers will soon be on site if they do, is vital.

Staff Malpractice

As horrible as it is to consider, theft of workers possessions can be the work of other staff members and having security measures such as CCTV in place can help to prevent this. It also helps to clear up any disputes over incidents that happened on site, providing HD images of the event in question.

A lack of compliance with health and safety guidance is also a serious concern that can lead to workplace accidents especially when heavy machinery is involved. Having security guards and CCTV on site will ensure that all your workers are on their best behaviour and comply with safety advice and protocol.

Construction Site Security Guards

Security guards have been the protectors of construction projects for many many years now, and remain fundamental to construction security industry.

Our SIA licenced security guards deter criminals through their presence alone and will conduct regular patrols of your site looking for any security concerns along the perimeter or in key areas.

They can do this alone or in a group and security dogs can be included if deemed necessary to maximise intruder detection.

They will also take charge of site access control, checking the IDs of visitors and staff either physically or by operating biometric access control gates, that we can provide, that use fingerprint and facial recognition. During their mobile patrols they will examine alarm systems for any signs of tampering and ensure that they are switched on and primed at the right times to protect key assets such as expensive equipment.

As well as allowing or denying individuals access to your site, security guards will also manage vehicle access and project staff vehicles whilst packed in site. Should an intruder be detected, your security guards will detain them if safe to do so and wait for the emergency services to arrive. In the event of a medical emergency, they will provide basic first aid until a medical professional is in attendance.

A construction security guard from Select Solutions is an incredible asset to have on your site, reassuring staff that they are safe and site and protecting your key assets using their extensive skillset, knowledge, and training.

They will comply with all current security industry authority regulations at all times whilst implementing construction security solutions and will utilise other security measures such as CCTV to maximise their effectiveness. Construction security guarding is different to security guarding in any other industry and we have tailored our security guard training programme to include scenarios most relevant for construction projects and vacant sites.

CCTV Towers

CCTV cameras are your eyes in the sky, allowing you to monitor site activity remotely and keep an eye on the entire project at once.

They are also a huge deterrent to criminals and ensure that any criminal activity or workplace accidents are caught on film, providing evidence in police investigations and insurance claims.

Unfortunately, the nature of construction sites makes them a bit difficult to monitor using traditional CCTV cameras for a couple of reasons:

1) The project is only temporary and installing fixed wired CCTV would be a waste of money.

2) Most construction sites don’t have mains electricity access.

The solution? Our CCTV towers are the perfect choice. Fully mobile, our team will have a CCTV tower up and running in no time, and it will only be in place as long as you need it to be.

They can be installed in any location, no matter how remote or exposed to the elements it may be, with an armored box protecting a long-life battery charged by built-in solar panels, requiring no access to mains electricity.

Our remote monitoring CCTV towers are linked to our central monitoring station where security professionals will constantly monitor its status and access the live images to determine the correct action to take.

All our CCTV towers stream images live via 5G transmission, allowing you to access them remotely on your mobile phone, a great feature if you aren’t able to visit your site for whatever reason but still want to check in on the project’s progress.
