Door Supervision

Phoenix Eye’s experience has been gained through the management of construction site security for many construction sites over the years, such as, Sir Robert McAlpine, Laing O’Rourke, Miller Construction, Thompson’s of Prudhoe and Barratt Homes to name but a few.

We understand construction sites need a certain calibre of security staff and that each construction site is different. That’s why at Phoenix Eye each quotation and consultation we give is bespoke to your construction site. We also know that you want and need security staff that care about the site and are trained to a high standard. All of our staff are trained in customer service NVQ level 2 and given extra training in construction site safety. All of our guards are SIA licence holders and most hold valid CSCS cards.

The key to placing a good security operative within a construction site is quite simply, in our experience, down to very good communication skills, being smart and presentable at all times and being able to deal with any potential situation in a very concise professional manner.

We have a pool of reliable fully trained personnel who are respectable and proactive; often going above and beyond their expected duties like reception security/gate management, delivery management visitor handling and safety, theft/vandalism prevention; operating as an integral part of your team.

A tip from the sales manager at Phoenix Eye: “all of our guards are employed on a PAYE (Pay as you earn) basis. This ensures our staffs are correctly vetted, licensed, trained and operate within the guidelines the SIA set out and indeed the Inland Revenue… Always make sure the company is SIA/ACS accredited”.

What our guards do

  • Regular site perimeter checks using Patrol Manager Technology free of charge. Staff & visitor safety, regular patrols by an area supervisor.

How we do it

Phoenix Eye Management team visits the client to complete a site survey to define the exact service the client requires. A risk assessment is then conducted so that an efficient operational requirement can be created. From this we then create an assignment instruction, which once agreed is signed by both parties.

“At Miller Construction, our primary goal is to make sure our sites are protected at all times, not only because of the high value goods on site but also to protect members of the public from injury and of course sometimes our staff from members of the public. Criminal activity on construction sites has increased due to the recession. Would be an opportunist thieves will take anything they get their hands on especially copper and other metals due to the rising scrap metal prices. That’s why we use Phoenix Eye; we know the guards are conscientious and respectable. They care about the site and become part of our team. They always go above and beyond their duty by helping with things like deliveries and visitor safety. We like the way their perimeter checks are carried out and the data this can provide by using the Patrol Manager system. Last but not least their pricing is always competitive”
