Securing a construction site is no easy task given how vast and open they are. In addition, before construction begins, access to power is often a major obstacle in providing adequate security. In the past the only viable option was to employ on-site security guards which in the past has proven to be expensive.

For B&C Building Contractors a pallet of building materials can be worth in excess of €2,000 and with prices of building materials sharply on the rise, coupled with long delivery times, it was crucial that nothing goes missing during the construction phase.

Issues With Connectivity

Current System Offered No Detection

Risk of Antisocial Behaviour


The primary objective for B&C Building Contractors was have peace of mind, knowing their site and valuable materials are protected at all phases of construction. To achieve that goal, their requirements included a robust security system, with prompt reaction times, that will give their team the peace of mind needed to focus on the success of their growing business.

In the initial phase when a power source was not available, The Eco-Commander provided B&C Building Contractors with the comfort of having a proactive video monitoring (PVM) solution before there was permanent power on site. This allows for on-site security from day one.

Netwatch designed and installed a system to meet the challenges identified by their team and addressed any concerns B&C had. Under the Managed Service offering, Netwatch assumed complete control from site design through installation, monitoring and maintenance.


Now when there is a security breach, Netwatch Monitoring Hubs are alerted within seconds, and the relevant people at B&C Building Contractors are notified. The specific protocol is then followed to ensure the highest level of response and security at all times ensuring they are operating in a fearless environment.

“”Having Netwatch on site gives us comfort, we know the site is protected as best as it can possibly be. We are in a time where fuel theft is on the rise, we need to be sure when we have 20 machines on site in the morning that they will all still be full of fuel”

– Stephen McBride (B&C Contractors Site Forman)
