Building construction is part of everyone’s life at some point. Whether you’ve built your dream home, waited on your apartment/condo to be done, or are constructing your own multi-million dollar business, you’ve dealt with the same issue, security. Theft on construction sites has been on the rise in recent years. Covert Results has done the research and has the experience in keeping construction sites safe and free from security threats. 

The increase of construction sites all over Nashville and surrounding areas brings on additional construction theft according to Nashville News Channel 5. Just last year poorly secured construction sites fell victim to crooks. Developers have reported losing up to $21,000 in equipment from one single job site on one day. These stolen items range anywhere from air conditioners, to copper wire, to even the flowers planted in the front yard. The crime has not stopped there. 

The National Insurance Crime Bureau and the National Equipment Register estimates up to $1 billion in equipment, materials and appliances are stolen from construction sites every single year in the U.S. and less than 25 percent (25%) is ever recovered. The most common items stolen from construction sites are: 

1. Tools and Small Supplies

2. Appliances

3. Heavy Equipment

4. Metal

5. Lumber

The smaller tools and supplies are more frequently taken one tool at a time over a span of a few months. Appliances are usually stolen due to poor security or weaknesses in security that criminals use to take advantage. The heavier equipment does not go missing as often as smaller tools, but can also be a victim of poor planning. Due to the rising price of lumber and copper, those pieces can be stolen even after installation. So, what can you do to prevent being a victim?
