Tips for Site Security Fencing
American Fence Rental has their finger on the pulse of the site security industry. Because of their fourteen state service area, they have a cumulative knowledge of what is going on in the Midwest construction market. Listed below are 3 trends that are being seeing across the board:
- No longer are architects requiring “site security fencing,” but are stating within the general conditions that “The contractor adequately secure the site against vandalism and theft and ensure public safety.” This has a lot of contractors confused about whether or not to provide temporary fencing for security. It is not until there is an unfortunate theft or incident that owners and architects are pointing fingers at the contractor for failing to meet the general conditions for site security. As a result, contractors are being held responsible for any delays and costs to meet project deadlines. It would be unwise to interpret this new construction language to mean that temporary site security fencing is no longer required. This new language is a broader and more strict statement to contractors to provide more broad-based security measures including cameras, site security fencing, on-site security personnel and monitored services.
- There has been a large increase in security cameras and motion detection across the construction industry. In large part, this is due to the ease of maintenance, installation and cost of this equipment. There are many multi-camera systems that can connect to site Wi-Fi. These systems run on an easy to use and download handheld device apps. Most of these systems can be purchased for a couple hundred dollars and can be installed in mere minutes. In addition, many of these systems come with motion detection that sends an alert to your mobile phone and activates the camera. Best of all, many of these systems offer cloud storage for recording time lapse footage of the past hours’, days’ and weeks’ events.
- Make sure you don’t forget your “This site has video surveillance” signage. Motion detectors and cameras are great but the ultimate intent is to prevent theft and trespassing. Installing proper signage along your site security fencing every 100 feet will let others know your site is not a good target. The vast majority of the construction site break-ins don’t occur at the main gate, but instead at the rear of the property. These signs are inexpensive and send a clear, strong message.
