Construction Site CCTV

Construction sites have long borne the brunt of attention from criminals, who see a vacant site as a prime target for theft and vandalism.

Key risks include open entryways because of the need to enable heavy goods vehicles and machinery access, and valuable building materials, such as piping, tools, raw materials, fuel storage and commercial vehicles. With workforces typically working variable shifts patterns, this can expose your construction site to intruders overnight and other out of hours periods.

Construction site CCTV is a primary safeguard solution in your security strategy. It can make the difference between a site that is vulnerable to break-ins and trespassers, and one that is actively protected, making a difficult target for criminals.

We provide a range of comprehensive building site CCTV solutions and remain ahead of the game when it comes to designing effective systems that provide an advanced response system, to conserve the integrity of your construction site when it is most at risk.

Construction CCTV Features

Regardless of which CCTV system you choose, we offer:

  • Expedited installation processes ensure that CCTV can be quickly fitted by our experienced security teams providing instant assurance that your site is monitored professionally and appropriately.
  • High-performance 360o cameras to deliver outstanding coverage of more expansive areas, covering every angle and the most vulnerable points of entry.
  • Solar-powered CCTV options to minimise your running costs – ideal for construction sites where main power lines are unavailable, or where your site covers a large floor space, and remote coverage is vital.

Each of our CCTV solutions is tailored to fit your unique site security requirements, and the team is always on hand to recommend the ideal setup for your requirements.

The Need For Construction Site CCTV

Earlier this year, the Construction Equipment Association (CEA) announced that thefts on building sites had escalated by a staggering 50%.

The increase in thefts highlights the urgent need for construction site CCTV solutions to protect sites from theft, and to save site managers the extensive costs, time and stress associated with replacing stolen materials, making insurance claims, and managing downtime while damage is repaired.

In many cases, it is impossible for machinery and tools to be kept off-site; in which case, using locks, storage containers and concrete blocks are simple measures that can make these valuable assets less of a target.

The CEA has strongly recommended:

  • Using robust, advanced construction site CCTV solutions.
  • Installing prominent CCTV installations, particularly on high-risk sites.
  • Leveraging technologically advanced analytical cameras to identify security breaches immediately.
  • Having a reliable monitoring service in place to respond rapidly to alarm activations.

This advice highlights what the Clearway security team already knows; that CCTV installations are an essential asset to protecting your site and safeguarding your workforce.

It also supports our recommendations to install the highest performance CCTV available, since passive systems simply record footage without taking a proactive stance in prev
