Although construction crime is estimated at over $1 billion a year in the USA, jobsite security is often ignored by smaller builders and contractors until an expensive incident forces them to react. By that time the crime has already affected your bottom line, reputation and most likely caused costly work delays. Larger companies tend to realize that crimes like theft and vandalism are real problems that must be addressed through prevention. A more proactive security strategy anticipates these job site challenges and budgets which plan for security in order to prevent major setbacks.
Echelon provides security solutions for the construction industry including; vigilant security agents and video surveillance systems to safeguard your job site from theft, vandalism, intimidation and unauthorized access regardless of the type or size of your project. Our security experts act as your customized risk management team to access key risk factors, stakeholder objectives and the specific security concerns of your job site environment to ensure your materials, trailers and equipment are secure. We also take into consideration the unique security challenges associated with remote, metro or neighborhood job sites.
Research shows that thieves case job sites by day to evaluate soft targets, and learn routines and hours. As a security solutions provider for hundreds of businesses in our region, Echelon believes in a developing a “highly visible” strategic security plan which forces potential perpetrators to look elsewhere for an easier target.
