Site security & fire safety

Crime, theft, and arson is a huge challenge in the construction industry and there are approximately 6000 break-ins to sites each year, with 800m loss on plant alone. In addition, the UK has also seen a rise in unlawfully tower crane climbing (base jumpers)

At the initial consultation stage, we find out more about your scheme and programme to establish if security is required immediately, or at later phases when higher value materials start to arrive on site. We listen attentively to your health & safety objectives and gather vital information on the site survey, such as perimeter measurements, fencing types, power requirements, office set up and project duration. Our team then produces comprehensive designs and solutions that have been tailored to your exact requirements and project schedule.
