Lack of construction site security across London should raise concerns

building engineers

The lack of construction site security across various London projects should be a major reason of concern, especially since it could potentially lead to some very unfortunate accidents caused by thrill seekers.

Video footage that has been recently posted on video sharing website YouTube of three young men posing high above the London skyline walking on the edge of the roof of a tall building under construction, and standing on top of what appears to be the mast of a hoist.

The building was not specified, other than that it is near Tower Bridge. The footage, filmed on 14th September 2016, shows it to be at fit-out stage.

Tensor – experts in delivering secure and cost-effective construction site security systems

Tensor has an extensive expertise in designing, installing and commissioning comprehensive integrated construction site security systems, from physical access control to video monitoring and management.

We have integrated its .NET suite of products to allow seamless integration between the CSCS SmartCard and our Access Control, Time Management, Visitor/Contractor Management and Fire/Evacuation roll-call systems, including turnstiles and biometric verification devices (facial recognition, hand scanning & fingerprint recognition).

Furthermore, we have developed the Tensor Rapid Deployment Asset Protection System (RDAPS), the UK’s first and only Secured by Design accredited self-sustained security surveillance system designed to prevent crime and gather evidence in remote sites and trouble hotspots.

The RDAPS includes a high-definition camera system of evidential quality and a self-contained high-definition NVR platform with full video analytics capabilities, fully integrated 2-way audio and alarms, capable of delivering extensive remote location, building site and major events security.

Featuring a rugged, weather and vandal-proof design, RDAPS has been designed to protect assets located in vulnerable or remote locations, where current constraints exist due to a lack of power and/or communications. The system is equipped with a Solar/Wind Turbine charged battery system, as well as multiple wireless communication platforms (Wi-Fi, 3G/4G, etc.).
