Enhancing security for national construction company

In a bustling city like Dublin, ensuring the security of construction sites is paramount. The national construction company recognised this need and sought the expertise of Securitas Ireland to safeguard their new site, where a hotel and parking garage were under construction.

The client's primary concern was securing the site round the clock, especially during off-hours and construction phases. With the site adjacent to a busy street, unauthorised access posed a significant risk. However, budget constraints ruled out the option of hiring a full-time on-site security officer/guard. The client sought a technical solution to address these security challenges effectively.

Securitas' response

Securitas devised a comprehensive plan to bolster site security while adhering to the client's budgetary constraints.

Design and installation phase

The focal point of concern was the main site access. Securitas' Protective Services Division devised a solution involving the installation of a full-height Security Turnstile equipped with Access Control and time and attendance software. This strategic placement effectively curtailed unauthorised access without the need for a dedicated on-site security officer. The implementation not only mitigated the client's major security risk but also yielded significant cost savings, enabling additional security enhancements such as an out-of-hours Mobile Guarding Service.


Operational phase 

With the construction site now operational, Securitas Ireland continues to provide robust security through a multi-layered approach and dedicated Mobile Guarding Service. The client is considering replicating this successful security strategy for future sites.

Ongoing support

To ensure sustained security excellence, Securitas Ireland assigned a dedicated Protective Services Branch Manager to oversee and support ongoing operations. This commitment underscores Securitas' dedication to forging enduring partnerships beyond delivering one-time solutions.

Securitas Ireland's bespoke security solution not only met the client's requirements but also provided additional support through cost-effective measures. The ongoing support and advisory services from Securitas exemplify their commitment to delivering exceptional security solutions tailored to each client's unique needs.
