What Is Fit-out Construction?

Construction site fit out services are essentially the process in which your specifications are taken into consideration, thereafter a fit out company will take these and make it ready for finishing touches. 

Fit out construction is the installation of mechanical and electrical systems, plumbing and other alike factors that make for a comfortable environment. Whether it is an office, a shop or restaurant commercial fit outs cover all grounds to ensure that it is ready for decoration. 

Why Security Is Necessary During Fit Out Construction

During a project, a fit out construction manager should have the right security measures in place and have a delegated team or outsourced management to handle this responsibility. 

Ultimately, when construction is underway anywhere, it is in a vulnerable position. 

Simply put, there is not ample security on a property under construction, which is why it needs to be put in place externally. Depending on the size of the project, this can look like a range of solutions that work together to create security for construction fit out that is convenient and effective. Find some of these solutions below and start securing your fit out project, today. 

What Security Services We Provide for Fit Out Construction Sites

What security is needed on a construction site?

As mentioned, in the process of a fit out your construction site, big or small, is in a vulnerable state. It is open to a higher probability of theft, vandalism and damage which means there is a range of security measures that must be in place to secure the site. This is not only necessary to protect assets, but to also ensure the safety of your construction workers. If anything on site has been tampered with, or stolen, this could seriously affect the safety measures that have been put in place prior. That being said, it is crucial you're aware of these happenings and the only way to be aware is to utilise security measures like CCTV, access control and similar solutions.

What is the difference between a fit out and a renovation?

While the two may be used interchangeably, the two offer two different stages of full renovation. The key differences between construction site fit out services and a renovation is the work that is completed, a fit out involves the likes of: plumbing, electrics, flooring, heating etc. Whereas renovation may be the more aesthetic side of things such as painting, decorating and interior design.

How do you prevent Unauthorised access to a construction site?

The most effective way of ensuring you minimise unauthorised access to a construction site is to put the right fit out construction security in place. Solutions such as facial recognition to enter, kiosk clocking stations, pre-registration and time and attendance management are all key to ensuring only qualified workers are on your fit out site.

What is the construction law in the UK?

The reason security for construction fit out is so important, is that you’re required to follow particular regulations. This includes the likes of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015. These were introduced to ensure the health and safety of workers on site and having the right security in place can ensure that nothing is disturbing these measures. Something else to take into consideration is the planning permission and building regulations, as these dictate the requirements for obtaining approval for construction projects, ensuring compliance with standards related to safety, accessibility, energy efficiency, and environmental sustainability. Thus, it may be a requirement as per regulation that you have these levels of security in place for your fit out.
