Construction Security

Instead of expensive guards, courtesy patrols, or passive camera systems, leading general contractors invest in innovative security services that reduce risk and stop crime before it happens. Through our interactive “Voice Down” deterrent and application of intelligent technology, we dramatically lower the cost of effectively protecting your job site.

Keep your site protected and secure with Bastion Security.

Unique Construction Site Security Challenges

Job Site Theft

Even with security fencing, job sites are relatively open and exposed. Expensive materials, vehicles, parts, computer equipment, and appliances in laydown-areas or built structures are a strong attraction for theives. Replacement cost can be high, but repair and re-work labor or delays can be even costlier.

Liability from Trespass

Trespass of any kind can lead to tragic results on job sites, including fatal falls from crane climbers, to kids falling into open trenches, or teens joyriding earthmoving equipment. Contractors need tight security to lock down their site to prevent unauthorised entry of high risk areas.

Liquidated Damages from Project Delays

While direct costs of theft can be significant, some projects are exposed to expensive late fees if not delivered on time. Bastion Security helps you maintain operational continuity and reducing delays resulting from outside forces.

Inside Job Risk

Job sites can be large, complex, and high-turnover, with new subcontractors frequently on the scene. All these eyes and ears can identify the presence and location of high value assets, so it can be targeted later by criminal associates. Through our password system, we only allow authorized individuals to access your job site after hours.

Active Security Monitoring helps Project Managers maintain safe and secure work environments

Our turnkey security service provides the best of both worlds: operational excellence and peace of mind.

Active Security Monitoring is a managed security service provided by Bastion Security. We design and setup a state-of-the-art video surveillance system (via proprietary free-standing or mounted surveillance units) around your job site to enable real-time security monitoring by our expert team.

We work with you to design solutions that are cost-effective for your specific job site.

Another key factor is jobsite safety. Our service enables 24/7 video recording and storage of construction site activities, which can be reviewed in case of an accident. This has additional benefit in cases of missed delivery investigation or fraud and liability protection.

For sites with special needs or manned security requirements, we integrate our Active Security Monitoring Services with traditional security guard companies.

Whether you're a project manager, superindentent, or construction executive, we provide our clients the ability to live view all their locations at any time, thereby saving the time and expense of physically visiting each site and giving peace of mind, at any time of day or night.

How Bastion Security protects Construction Sites

Real Deterrent

We intercede to stop unwanted activity and crime with our unique, real-time "Voice Down".

Police Dispatch

We first investigate to avoid false alarms, then assist PD or on-site personnel.

Complete Solution

We design and commission the system and configure each unit for a specific purpose at your site.

Guard "Force Multiplier"

When guards are required for non-security reasons, we greatly reduce the number needed to protect your site, and improve the service quality of the remaining guard staff.

Turnkey Service

We handle it all: "You’re Covered". Along with our Active Security Monitoring service, Bastion Security provides site assessment, solution design, installation / integration, and maintenance.

Effective protection at dramatically lower cost

Typically a 75%+ savings over on-site guards.


Bastion Security has scared off a lot of would-be trespassers, and led to the arrest of others who ignored the warnings. It’s made our site a much less inviting target, that’s for sure.

Seattle PD says whatever we’re paying you – it isn’t enough. Pretty high praise.

David H. - Construction Project Manager

“We have been using Bastion Security on both our Crenshaw projects and we have been pleasantly pleased. I was a little skeptical originally given this was a tough area and we were used to using actual guard services. In the first 10 months we have had no major issues and there have been numerous arrests. I would now recommend using Bastion Security.”

Richard S. - Construction Executive

Customer service speaks volumes – I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Bastion Security. You’re not necessarily the least expensive, but you’re the best.

Cathi O. - Construction Project Manager

"With Bastion Security I can protect my sites for less than a nightly security guard. Our Southern California projects are often in rough areas with lots of transients, and Bastion Security has prevented dozens of potential thefts with almost 20 police apprehensions."
