The UK construction market is a tough place and competition has arguably never been more intense. Firms need to manage increasing demand, recruitment and prompt project delivery while all the time trying to make a profit. With all this to worry about, small things that affect your bottom line can seem like utter catastrophes.

It is for this reason that security systems are of the utmost importance to construction companies. A break-in can be extremely damaging to your project, particularly if something essential is taken, leaving you with a delay while you source new tools or materials. Protecting your site should be one of your top priorities.

Fortunately, SECOM can help. We provide a cost-effective, tailored security solution that will keep your construction sites and warehouses safe from intruders. SECOM will manage the whole security aspect of your project for you on your behalf, giving you one less thing to worry about.

Security issues should be considered as soon as possible

With all the other matters that building and electrical contractors have to consider when taking on a new construction job, it can be all too easy to allow the installation of security measures to be left to the last minute. However, this would be a big mistake that potentially leaves your site open to intruders.

The best security systems are planned out in the early stages of a project so they can be fully integrated into your site. This means you will avoid having to make compromises in order to fit a last-minute security plan into your budget.

By addressing the issue early on in the design process, you can make sure that the safety solutions you choose are integral to the whole project rather than just an afterthought. With SECOM’s help, this can be easy.

  • Cost-effective, tailored security solutions.
  • Equipment, installation and labour sourced in-house.

At SECOM, we can design and provide a wide range of integrated security measures, including everything from intruder alarms, door entry systems, CCTV solutions, grilles and shuttering which are all designed and manufactured by SECOM plc.

We don’t believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. The security plans we offer are tailored specially for the construction sector, taking into account the specific needs of the industry. This means you can be sure your project has the safest possible foundations.

One of the biggest problems when choosing an external firm to deliver security measures for a construction development is the risk of delay to the project, potentially leading you to incur additional costs. With SECOM, that won’t be the case; we work to your deadline, offering completion within submitted timescales. We pride ourselves on our quick turnaround.

Designing your solution

Designing a security solution is a substantial task that can take up a lot of your time at the beginning of a project. However, we can take away all of the hassle involved by sourcing the labour, installation and equipment through our own design team.

This means you get the best of both worlds. You don’t have to cut corners or make compromises when it comes to your security, but you still have plenty time to deal with the rest of your project’s set-up. With SECOM, you can be sure you are getting a high-quality security plan without having to work your fingers to the bone planning it and setting it up.

When choosing SECOM as the sole security provider for your project, we will provide you with a single point of contact for all of your requirements. We can supply you with all the information needed in electronic format and can deliver quantified schematics based on your tender requirements. With our supporting team of estimators, you can also be sure that our contract bids are fully compliant, whatever the size of the project.
