Building Sites and Storage Protection

Lodge Service can help you to protect your warehousing, building sites and other commercial areas to ensure safe and secure storage of materials, vehicles and equipment, as well as site entry and exit security.

We will help you set up processes and systems to supervise levels of permitted access and movement recording systems, to effectively monitor the movement of goods and other assets on site and their use or onward transportation.

Support includes help with securing key areas on each construction site with CCTV and physical security measures, as required, appropriate to the level of threat and the volume of activity. This is to ensure that your teams can go about their daily activities with the least possible constraints and restrictions, whilst ensuring a high level of monitoring and security.

We will help you set up routines and processes on site, security rotas and reporting systems – all that is necessary to monitor and manage a busy workplace, and protect your bottom line profits.

Haulage Security and Protection

Excavators, vans and lorries, forklift trucks and other building plant equipment: we can help you protect all your valuable assets to counter the risk of theft and criminal damage.

Lodge Service can secure building areas and vehicle parks, to control access and ensure 24-7 monitoring with CCTV and two-way communications systems. We carry out a full risk assessment and can also train your staff in relevant security tasks and procedures.

Support includes protection for cabling, electrical systems and other materials which can be a major target for theft and criminal damage. We advise on protective measures, including extra physical security as well as CCTV deployment and monitoring.

Lodge Service installs IP cameras and CCTV systems to enable the protection of remote and hard to access electrical and other service installations. CCTV monitoring over the internet can support all your building sites 24/7.

Logistics Security and Protection

Construction and industrial logistics are perhaps most vulnerable when goods are in transit, including at the point of arrival. Articulated vehicles and other trucks may arrive overnight or otherwise out of hours to enable timely delivery for building sites.

Lodge Service has developed a range of services to support secure, cost-effective out of hours deliveries. This includes DCD, Driver Controlled Delivery, which enables a single driver to safely transport goods to warehouses and other destinations.

Vehicles can be equipped with a geopositioning tracking device as well as two-way communication so that the driver can remain in touch with the Lodge Service intelligence centre at all times when goods are in transit, 24-7. On arrival at a warehouse or goods yard, the driver can request the intelligence centre to remotely unlock the compound.

Drivers can be further equipped with personal cameras, personal alarms and fall detector devices, to alert the intelligence centre to a potential security incident.
