With potentially high-risk sites, valuable materials and commercial vehicles all often left overnight; it is essential to consider how best to prevent criminal access and protect your assets. As an expert in construction site CCTV in Scotland the Clearway team offers a comprehensive range of solutions specifically tailored to the core vulnerabilities of building sites. Keep your site safe, secure and well defended at all times.

Construction Site Theft

Protecting Scottish Building Sites - the risks

Building sites in Scotland have long been exposed to theft and damage, and the costs of this can be significant. From repairing vandalism, replacing stolen materials, restoring perimeter security and coping with time delays and pressures, recovering from a criminal breach can be both stressful and expensive.

Plant theft is a considerable risk, with Police Scotland having warned in the past about how criminals are advancing their strategies to use fraud and deception to gain illegal access to highly valuable professional construction equipment.

In addition, the pandemic restrictions of 2020 gave rise to a staggering 40% increase in vehicle robberies, with the Police Scotland Crime Reduction Officer in the north-east Fife stating that ‘With the construction industry winding down, some sites placed on full closure and the farming industry working with reduced numbers of staff and machinery not in use, we are finding these are targets for theft.

‘The use of low loaders and vans to conceal smaller plant equipment is also prevalent and is commonly used for the theft of smaller machinery such as mini diggers, dumpers, generators and road rollers.’ (View source)

Another key factor is in risk prevention; only suitably trained and experienced personnel should be able to access a construction site.

Sites where members of the public or trespassers might be tempted to breach perimeters can pose a significant risk of injury, and so keeping your site safeguarded is a valuable way to prevent any incidents occurring, as well as avoiding any potential liability.

Construction site CCTV solutions

Construction site CCTV presents an affordable, effective deterrent, which can act as a standalone safety precaution, or be combined with any number of complementary services to create a shield around your building sites.

Clearway works with construction clients across Scotland, delivering a variety of solutions to protect sites from small, private projects to large-scale developments.

Each solution is recommended following a risk analysis to identify where your primary threats arise, and where protection is vital:

  • Purpose-built CCTV towers can be installed quickly, with immediate surveillance of large construction sites and areas of land.
  • Telescopic mast mounts can be as high as six metres, giving a full, 360-degree view of your premises and work sites.
  • Solar panels enable economic battery recharging, with high capacity charges to keep your cameras operating day or night seamlessly.
  • These autonomous systems have zero reliance on mains power, and so are ideal for large construction sites, or remote locations where mains power is unavailable.
  • Minimal maintenance means that our CCTV systems run efficiently, without intervention or manual programming, and can be installed in minutes.
  • Mains power solutions are available for longer-term CCTV tower installations, as required.
