The secret to dynamic construction sites

When you have a build schedule to meet, time is of the essence. You need your site to be up and running, safe and secure, in the fastest possible timeframe and you need the site to run smoothly throughout the build.
The secret to dynamic construction sites

You need Site Setup.

Many people assume that incorporating technology into a new site takes time, but we have created a core package that can be quickly installed and readily tailored to meet your specific site safety, security and management requirements.

Read on to find out how Site Setup can help you create a site that runs efficiently and is safe and secure, right from day one.

Workforce management

You need to know who’s on site at any given time, and sign in books are a thing of the past. Not only do they require regular checking and monitoring, but it’s very easy to forget to sign in and out on a busy site. Integrating sign in with site access is the ideal alternative. Integrated access control solutions range from a standard turnstile to a state of the art biometric system, which creates a unique profile for every member of your on-site staff and enables them to use their unique biometric information to gain site access. It also gives you an accurate record of exactly who is on site, and when. For sites that require vehicle access, Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) uses high-speed image capture to give you a highly cost effective means of monitoring and restricting vehicle access.

Staying safe

Construction sites are often seen as easy prey for thieves and vandals. Today’s advanced high definition, internet-based CCTV systems allow you or your security partner to remotely monitor your site 24/7. And, for added peace of mind, Site Setup can include manned guarding from qualified and professional SIA-trained security personnel.

Another vital element of site security is fire safety. Our interconnecting wireless fire alarms have been designed specifically for the construction industry, and can be integrated with fire aid call points and localised base station alerts. Not only that, but when used together with our access control systems, in the event of an alarm turnstiles will be released automatically to allow for swift evacuation.

Keeping track, controlling costs

To help you keep an eye on cost control, you might find energy analysis software beneficial. Capturing and monitoring gas, electricity and water usage across your site will allow you to identify where reductions and cost savings can be made to keep all-important project costs under control and build projects within budget.

And HD quality time-lapse videos are a great way of bringing your construction projects to life and keeping stakeholders updated on progress. Available to be generated at scheduled intervals or on-demand, they can be used by your marketing and communications teams to communicate project progress to the people that matter.

Site Setup enables you to source everything you need from the same place in one convenient package, and our dedicated support team will be on hand, 24/7, to help you with maintenance and support throughout your building project. Contact us today to find out how we can help keep your construction site secure and working efficiently.
