Building sites are a very attractive target for thieves and a quick look at the figures show the reasons why. The theft and vandalism at building sites in the UK has cost the industry an estimated £400 million a year which is over £1 million a day.
But even armed with such knowledge building site security is not always classed as a high priority. With most building site management teams working to strict budgets and targets the security of the building site is viewed as a costly and inefficient use of resources.
It is for this reason that potential thieves find a building site a tasty target and what a profitable target it could be, a building site is a treasure chest of high value equipment which can be sold on very quickly. It is not just the building site plant equipment that is at risk, the site office is also at risk. The office is usually located in an inaccessible area which is hard to secure and out of site
but it also contains some very expensive equipment as well as high value information. Which could be very useful to rival companies?
