The Economic Impact of Security Breaches on Construction Projects

Understanding the Cost of Insecurity

Unsecured construction sites can have significant financial implications, impacting overall project revenues. These can include:

Theft of Materials and Equipment: Direct costs include replacing stolen items, often causing immediate financial strain.

Project Delays: Delays from replacing equipment or repairing vandalism can push project timelines, potentially leading to penalty fees or missed market opportunities.

Increased Insurance Premiums: Frequent claims can increase insurance costs, affecting long-term operational budgets.

Loss of Business Confidence: Security incidents can damage a company’s reputation, leading to loss of current and future business.

Legal and Liability Costs: Incidents on insecure sites may lead to legal action, incurring significant legal fees and settlements.
