MSSI: Portable Perimeter Security for Commercial Construction Sites

With construction project budgets exceeding 1,293 billion dollars, the U.S. is one of the biggest construction markets in the world. Since the recession between 2007 and 2009, construction projects that were once stalled have picked up pace and added new projects year over year. The growth in the residential and commercial construction markets has been the primary driver of our currently growing construction boom.

In the U.S., new construction is among the highest in the world. Currently, some of the largest U.S.-based construction firms are users of the patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal. On many of their projects in population hubs like San Francisco, New York, Chicago, and Dallas, a MAC Portal can be found somewhere on the perimeter.

The patented MAC Portal is a prefabricated, climate-controlled guardhouse with turnstiles and access control, and it’s making a big impact. During the past five or six decades, the prefabricated buildings have been used as guard booths and guardhouses at major industrial plants and on commercial construction sites around the world. 

MSSI and the patented MAC Portal help these construction sites run smoothly by providing an easily accessible entry point for employees who have the proper security credentials and a comfortable space for security staff to maintain watch of the construction site’s entry gate and perimeter.

Perimeter Security with Turnstiles, Access Control and Guard Offices

Since the early days of man, perimeter security could be as simple as natural barriers like mountains, hills, and tree lines. Today, more advanced chain-link fences, concrete walls, and restrictive gates that require authorized credentials to pass have become the norm. Sophisticated technologies that are meant to keep intruders out and prevent access to certain protected areas are more common in today's perimeter security world. Contained within those perimeters and protected gates – whether by natural barriers or more technologically advanced fences, walls, and gates – are buildings, complexes, and construction areas.

Since the Roman Empire and the building of the Great Wall of China barriers have been an important part of protecting the perimeter of territories, towns, villages, private property – and increasingly more common today, construction sites. Perimeter security for construction sites is designed to keep intruders out, protect tools and equipment, and to protect the public from injury.

Construction companies use perimeter security not only for the safety of their workers, but to also control the flow of authorized individuals in and out of the construction area. Property owners and construction organizations of all sizes use various access control technologies to achieve varying degrees of perimeter security from the smallest to the largest construction sites on the planet.

Beginning with the advent of electronic access control technologies, the concept of perimeter security has continued to evolve rapidly to include more modern, technological solutions like hand geometry readers and iris scanning devices. Today, access control technology coupled with turnstiles and climate controlled guard offices in a turn-key solution can be found on industrial and commercial construction projects from New York City to San Francisco and on around the world. 

Modular Security Systems Inc. (MSSI) provides unique perimeter security guard housing with turnstiles and access control technology on commercial construction projects. Our core customer base has been built over years of providing site-specific perimeter security solutions for commercial and industrial construction companies. Every perimeter security turnstile product we provide is driven by a commitment to provide quality products, excellent customer service, flexibility in design, and cost-effective solutions.

Is Security on Your Construction Site a Concern?

Is Security on Your Construction Site a Concern? 

Perimeter security on construction sites is an important factor when it comes to completing projects on time and under budget. In order to be proactive and reduce theft or vandalism on jobsites, many commercial and industrial contractors look to invest in developing a jobsite security plan long before construction starts. As part of the initial planning phase of the project, budgets are often created to include perimeter security as a line item. Major contractors in the know realize that the amount of money and work it takes to implement a security plan may be minuscule compared to the losses that can result from the theft of construction equipment.

Contractors with years of experience take into account the specific security risks associated with their projects and the importance for perimeter security. Recognizing that potential problems of theft or vandalism exist on all construction sites, security-minded contractors can implement measures to reduce the risk of being targeted for construction site vandalism and theft.

Implementing a plan that includes portable perimeter security solutions like fences, lighting, and secure entry/exit points with access control technology like the patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal and Vehicle Access Control (VAC) Portal have proven to save time and money on construction sites all around the world.
