Construction theft is a growing target for thieves and there is currently a $1 billion market for theft of equipment and building materials. When thieves vandalize or steal equipment and materials at a construction site, builders, equipment dealers, insurance companies, equipment manufacturers all lose money. Construction sites have been vandalized for decades and it is likely to continue if builders don?t move to do things preventing it. It?s a national problem and it is not going away anytime soon. The construction industry must find ways to identify the perpetrators, bring them to justice and recover the stolen materials. Equipment or material that is stolen can shut the job down temporarily or even permanently making it impossible to recover the costs. Insurance costs are continuously rising due to the widespread theft and its ease to commit. Rental companies may refuse to rent to organizations that do not properly guard their assets and company reputations can be severely damaged through vandal actions or repeated thefts. Failure to act in a pre-emptive way to avoid theft and vandalism is irresponsible and unnecessary. An estimated 90% of all equipment thefts take place between 6 p.m. Friday and 6 a.m. Monday with holidays and week nights being the last 10%. Construction sites are most vulnerable on weekends and tools, appliances and scrap metal and copper are the most popular items to thieves. Heavy equipment is also at risk.
