Security Strategies for CRE Projects Under Construction to Minimize Threat of Fire and Theft

Buildings under construction have a greater potential for significant property damage from fire than occupied buildings. This is due to unprotected structural components, floors, and wall openings; combustible building materials and construction debris; temporary heating equipment; and “hot work” processes. Since 2009, there have been over 45 major fires at multifamily housing construction projects nationwide. As such, many insurers are now beginning to require security cameras as part of site security requirements. Further, with the developments in technology and the increasing number of service providers, security cameras can be less expensive than traditional static guards or mobile patrols.
