Plant theft & van­dal­ism cost the con­struc­tion indus­try more than £1million per week. Let us help you pro­tect your site quick­ly, for as long as you need.

Whether you are involved in a brand new con­struc­tion or a refur­bish­ment, VPS offer a range of ser­vices to help keep con­struc­tion sites safe from onsite theft and van­dal­ism. Our cost-effec­tive solu­tions offer com­plete peace of mind. 

Con­struc­tion sites rep­re­sent a unique secu­ri­ty chal­lenge. The pres­ence of tem­po­rary fences and secu­ri­ty huts do lit­tle to deter deter­mined intrud­ers and the lack of core ser­vices (pow­er, light­ing, com­mu­ni­ca­tions), togeth­er with a con­tin­u­ous­ly chang­ing envi­ron­ment, mean that tra­di­tion­al fixed CCTV sys­tems can offer lim­it­ed effectiveness. 

Util­is­ing the lat­est tech­nol­o­gy, VPS can offer a range of inte­grat­ed solu­tions to mon­i­tor and secure your site. 

Mobile Wire­less CCTV — JCB Smart Tow­er CCTV®

The JCB Smart Tow­er® range incor­po­rates all the com­po­nents you’ll need to pro­vide effec­tive CCTV mon­i­tor­ing and record­ing in a robust and rugged hous­ing. A van­dal-proof pan-tilt-zoom cam­era is sup­ple­ment­ed with infra-red illu­mi­na­tors, a vari­ety of move­ment detec­tors, a dig­i­tal recorder and a pub­lic address system.

Mobile Wireless CCTV tower

Mon­i­tored wire­less CCTV, backed up by live audio chal­lenges, is proven to help pre­vent crime and improve your sites risk pro­file. There are many sup­pli­ers of CCTV secu­ri­ty, how­ev­er, very few have an offer­ing specif­i­cal­ly designed for tem­po­rary instal­la­tions such as con­struc­tion sites. JCB Smart Tow­er® is a rapid deploy­ment CCTV solu­tion that’s unique to the mar­ket as it offers a qual­i­ty ser­vice that is both more effec­tive and less expenive than tra­di­tion­al guards and equip­ment.

JCB Smart Tow­er® is a com­pre­hen­sive secu­ri­ty solu­tion with guar­an­teed sys­tem integri­ty to pro­tect remote and chal­leng­ing sites from start to com­ple­tion. Addi­tion­al­ly they pro­vide a safe­ty check reminder for work­ers to ensure they are not neglect­ing the site rules, and putting them­selves or their col­leagues at risk. 

Flex­i­ble Alarm solu­tions — VPS SmartAlarm

  • Our sen­sors will pro­vide instant detec­tion and report­ing on a range of inci­dents, includ­ing intrud­ers, flood­ing and fire.
  • Our alarms use wire­less tech­nol­o­gy, which means they are entire­ly stand-alone with a long-life bat­tery and on-board tam­per detection.
  • They can also include loud­speak­er voice mes­sages and a 120 deci­bel siren.

For sites that require addi­tion­al pro­tec­tion, we can also pro­vide manned secu­ri­ty, which can be deliv­ered via 24 hour or part time guard­ing, mon­i­tor­ing and care­tak­ing options.

All of our solu­tions can be deployed rapid­ly and main­tained for as long as your devel­op­ment requires the protection.

VPS FireAl­ert — An inno­v­a­tive fire safe­ty and evac­u­a­tion sys­tem for con­struc­tion sites

VPS FireAl­ert Wes+ helps pro­tect per­son­nel, mate­ri­als and build­ings on con­struc­tion sites. The sys­tem is mobile and wire­less, pro­vid­ing a cost effec­tive, effec­tive and prac­ti­cal fire pre­ven­tion solu­tion that can be applied at any loca­tion. VPS FireAl­ert Wes+ sys­tem aims to give the work­force the ear­li­est pos­si­ble warn­ing of fire, allow­ing the max­i­mum time to escape and to call the fire and emer­gency ser­vices if required. This ear­ly alert can reduce the risk of injury as well as pro­vid­ing more time to restrain fire spread, min­imis­ing dam­age and finan­cial loss.
