Each year the construction industry in the UK is victim to approximately £800 million of losses thanks to vandalism and theft, according to a report from insurers Allianz Cornhill.


Their study shows that these huge losses are derived mostly from the costs of hiring replacement items, replacing those same items, business lost as a result, and increases in premiums from insurance companies.

The Chartered Institute of Building’s 2016 study on Crime in the Construction Industry reports that, of the 1,100 professionals surveyed from the construction sector, 21% had suffered theft the week they were surveyed. If that wasn’t bad enough, a massive 92% reported that they suffered from theft on an annual basis, with many experiencing it on a weekly or monthly basis!

Reported in the same CIOB study, 91% or participants surveyed stated that they had been the victims of vandalism. Fences and locks may put off the casual intruder, but to deter hardened criminals and prevent serious equipment damage, a CCTV Tower is essential.

Assessment – Our Operations Team survey each new proposed site location, so that each individual client site requirements are tailored specifically to ensure we provide adequate effective coverage.

Further to our site survey being completed, a member of our Operations Team will schedule a suitable time slot for a return visit to discuss any particular concerns you might have, with a view to also agree on a route and schedule for the security operatives to patrol. Together we will also identify various assets and concerns within the agreed route of patrol.

Each Patrol including our observations are logged. Any incidents/occurrences are documented and reported to our Control Room.  Our Operations Teams will review and then report back to you, our client.

Proficient Security is driven to become one of the UK’s most recognised and accredited security providers.
