6 Steps to Securing Your High-Rise Building Construction Site
Building a new high-rise in an urban area presents an inviting target. For thieves who want to sell stolen equipment and materials, a high-rise building construction site can be a jackpot.
Even an urban construction site with a relatively small footprint presents some challenges. Wherever there are vulnerabilities, thieves see opportunity. These vulnerabilities may include:
- Multiple access points
- Heavy vehicle and foot traffic
- A ghost-town feel after hours
Vandals may also sneak in for some graffiti tagging and other nefarious activities that could delay a project and move budget dollars to remediation.
A robust security plan for high-rise construction will deter crimes of opportunity, as well as more sophisticated attempts to remove valuable items from job sites. With a comprehensive security strategy, construction site managers can protect all of their equipment and materials, no matter the value or size.
