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.
Theft – 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!
Vandalism – 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 – We assess each new site ourselves so that we can ensure we provide effective cover from our point of view.
Implementation – One of our Area Service Managers will visit you, discuss your particular concerns, and agree on a route and schedule for the security guards to patrol. Together you will identify set landmarks en route which our officers will photograph as they patrol to provide up to date imagery of the state of your site as they go.
Reporting – We document every step of our construction security guards’ route and report daily on our findings and observations.

Security Guard Services
We provide security services of the highest standard to a wide variety of different commercial sites across the UK.
All our security officers are highly trained, hold a valid SIA licence, and work alongside the very latest in reporting technologies and mobile security solutions.
Using their extensive experience protecting sites of all kinds, our security guards will identify any potential security risks specific to your premises and implement a bespoke and carefully designed plan to eliminate them.
Officers can work alone, as part of a team, or alongside a canine unit depending on your requirements.
Construction Site Security
The UK construction industry is in a constant battle against thieves, vandals, and arsonists, with approximately £800m lost every single year as a result of criminal activity.
By far the best way to protect your site from these threats and avoid the huge losses associated with replacing stolen goods and repairing damaged property is to hire security officers to deter intruders and maximise security.
Construction site security guard responsibilities
Construction site security guards will control access to the site, ensuring only authorised personnel are able to gain access, act as a visual deterrent to opportunistic thieves passing by, and provide meticulous reports of their findings that can be used to refine and improve security protocols.
All construction sites are different and before security guards are deployed we will visit your site and use our findings to create a bespoke set of assignment instructions that will be carried out once they are in place.
What do our clients say?
Void Property Security
If you own a property that is not currently in use it is essential to maintain security whilst you search for a new tenant.
The whole point of void property status is to save money but any savings will quickly disappear if you are the victim of vandalism, theft, or squatting.
Why protect void property?
Many void properties still have valuable items left inside and for an opportunistic thief, a seemingly unattended property is the perfect target as there is a lower risk of being disturbed once inside.
Squatting is also a major issue for void property owners, as tightened laws on squatting in a residential block have seen an increase in the occupation of commercial sites.
Squatters can be a complete nightmare to remove and the property damage that can be done during a period of occupation can cost thousands to repair.
For these reasons, it is crucial to have proper security in place if you are leaving your property void for any prolonged period, and manned security guarding services are one of the most effective options.
We provide security guards to properties all across the UK and no site is too remote, too large, or too small for our professional fully trained personnel to handle.
If you would rather not have a manned security presence in place 24 hours a day, we also offer mobile CCTV systems that can be deployed on your site and monitored from a remote location.
If you choose a monitored CCTV tower, for example, any instructions will be automatically detected, an alert will be sent to our local central monitoring station, and we will deploy a team of SIA licensed security guards to the premises immediately.
This is a great way to save money whilst still having a rapid response to emergency situations but a full-time security officer presence is always the most effective option
Corporate Security guardsRunning a business is an extremely time-consuming and often stressful task and keeping staff, visitors, and customers safe is your priority at all times. We provide security guards to pretty much every public and private industry that you can think of with our security personnel fitting perfectly into your existing set-up with a flexible uniform policy and a first class service guaranteed. Some of the corporate security services we offer include:
Concierge Security guardsSecurity guards are often the very first person that visitors see when they enter your premises. First impressions are crucial in business and a Prime Secure security officer will ensure that yours is a great one. We understand that when on your site we are representing your business and can provide a range of concierge services alongside our guard’s security duties. The front of house duties all our concierge security staff are trained in include:
- Reception skills
- First aid
- Customer service
Retail security guards
Due to the large quantities of valuable stock stored on site, retail businesses are regular targets of theft both during the day and at night.
Our experienced security guards will keep your premises secure 24/7 without disturbing your day-to-day activity, presenting an approachable and friendly face to customers whilst still acting as an effective visual deterrent to thieves and vandals.
We also operate a flexible uniform policy with an in-house uniform department so if you are looking for a certain style of security to match the image of your business this is something we are happy to accommodate.
Hotel Security Guards
In any business, reputation is king but this has never been more true than in the hotel business.
Your reputation amongst guests is paramount to your continued success and creating a safe and secure environment plays a major role in this.
With so many people going in and out of the hotel every day it can be difficult to keep track of ongoing activity but this is where our professional security guarding services come in.
Professional security guards are a must for any hotel serious about security and the personal safety of all guests and staff.
The expert eye of your security staff allows them to spot suspicious activity from within a crowd and this can be invaluable in a hotel reception area with an ever-changing flow of traffic.
Depending on your needs our guards can either act as a static presence located in key areas or conduct mobile patrols throughout the entire site protecting a number of different vulnerable areas and access points.
As one of the UK’s leading security companies, we also provide purpose built CCTV systems to hotels and other commercial sites across the nation.
All our staff are experts in the operation of CCTV and will use this technology to maximise their effectiveness in your hotel.
By alerting fellow team members to a potential situation identified via CCTV our team will be able to respond instantly and be on location in a matter of seconds.
Should the worst happen our security guards are experts in conflict management and will keep all guests away from the area until police officers or other emergency service staff have arrived.
