An innovative security system that delivers dramatic reductions in cost, time, emissions and health and safety risks, is to be highlighted at the property and construction London Build show, Olympia, 26th-27th October.
JCB Smart Towers integrated technologies both protect and secure construction site staff, the public, plant and equipment. Its supplier, the award-winning construction specialist, VPS Site Security, believes it will be a major support in meeting key targets of the government’s Construction 2025 strategy.
“There are four key targets for construction” explains Simon Alderson, Managing Director of VPS Site Security. “Lowering costs by 33%, faster delivery and lower emissions, each by 50%, and an improved health and safety record. Our experience to date has shown that by deploying smart technologies in site security and safety, these targets can be surpassed.”
“One client, a household name in construction, estimated they would be spending £2,240 per week for protecting and securing a highway construction project 24/7, and producing 1,500Kg of CO2 a week.” Simon commented. “With the smart technologies solution, that was cut to £1,100 and under 250Kg per week.”
In addition, health and safety issues were recorded, reviewed and acted upon quickly. The JCB Smart Tower and examples of the savings in security spend and safety improvements, are highlighted on stand F81 at London Build.
