Construction sites theft costs businesses over £800m every year with only 25% of stolen items recovered. Businesses also have legal duty to secure their sites to avoid injuries to members of the public.

Showing that a construction site is monitored round-the-clock, using well positioned correx, durable, waterproof,fully recyclable, warning sign boards alerts intruders before entering the site and acts as an effective, visual deterrent. Warning sign boards also provide our contact information for anyone who needs to report a suspicious activity.
For construction sites that need round-the-clock manned guarding, we offer a dedicated contact number that can be used by contractors, staff and visitors to get access to the site during non-working hours and weekends. We also print custom deterrent signs displaying the site contact number.
According to section 144, occupying or squatting in a commercial property is still not considered as criminal office. If a squatter can prove that he has the keys to get inside the premises without having to have break-in, legally they cannot be proven guilty of committing a criminal offense. Our guards make sure nobody can get access to any part of the premises as they can easily spot them if they are on site 24hrs a day - round-the-clock.
We use the latest Guard Patrol System to monitor security guards' patrol routines and activities. We place RFID tags around the site so that whoever is on duty has to patrol the site at specific times. Site managers can monitor security operations and view report incidents in real-time. Any incident report or missed checkpoint can be sent instantly relayed to the control room or site manager.
The system saves our security guards lot of time, and instead of spending time writing reports and making pointless phone calls to our control room, they can simply carry our with their routine.
We also conduct regular, unannounced supervisory site visits to check our guards' performance and welfare.
With our expertise, we can act as the watchful eye for your premises and asset - whether it's a single house or large scale development. We will also work with your team to ensure that your construction site working environment is safe and compliant to Health & Safety regulations.
