Burglary at single-family home construction sites is an increasing problem throughout the United States. Theft of materials, tools and equipment at residential subdivision construction sites comprises between 2 to 5 percent of total building costs. Large-scale tract developers are hardest hit by this form of crime.
· One of the unfortunate realities of the construction industry is the level of theft perpetrated by the authorized personnel working at the site. “Internal” theft is estimated to be as high as 50% of all theft from a residential construction project. Unfettered access and an up-to-date knowledge of materials installed and stored at the site allow easy theft from unprotected areas during off hours.
· An interesting example: Assume theft adds 2% to the cost of building a home. That means a $200,000 home is expected to lose $4000 in theft by the time it is completed. With an average of 200 homes in a subdivision and a build out time of 24 months, home builders expect to lose over $30,000 per month per community due to theft! Additionally, the schedule delays caused by theft and vandalism compound the problem through delayed closings and customer dissatisfaction.
