Benefits of CCTV Surveillance In Multifamily Buildings: Identify Construction Defects and Monitor Quality of Work

Given Florida’s warm climate and proximity to the water, the risk of buildings having structural defects dramatically increases. As an owner/property manager of a high-rise condominium or apartment building, it’s important to be able to identify areas of concern pertaining to your property’s structure before it’s built and during any subsequent repair work or projects.

Installing a surveillance system in your building, construction site, parking garages, basements or on roofs can help identify structural defects. Some of these defects can include, but are not limited to, cracking or weathering of walls, unstable foundations, erosion of mortar and peeling paint.

Here are some of the benefits a P&O Global Technologies’ security camera system can provide for your building:

Monitor Construction Work and Defects

A surveillance system can be beneficial in reviewing building inspections or construction work before they are built and later during any repairs, construction updates and recertifications.  It may be helpful to view a time-lapse video of the activities on the construction site and address potential problems before they occur. This can prevent structural defects that may pose a threat to members living in the high-rise condominium or apartment building.

Record Potential Evidence

CCTV cameras offer the ability to record evidence of any misconduct or construction negligence on your property, which becomes very helpful if there is ever a need for police investigation or legal procedures as a result of such a situation. Since these systems are always recording, there isn’t a moment missed. Through surveillance cameras, police can both prevent misconduct from happening and can quickly solve criminal cases or provide insurance with material evidence for a possible claim.

Keep an Eye on Construction Progress or Employees

With security camera footage, you can keep a close eye on how your current project is progressing as well as how your project team is handling the work. Although the project manager might still have to visit the site for first-hand observation, the security cameras can provide footage of how the events at the site have been unfolding and how diligently (or not) your staff is working.

Security cameras are just one piece of the puzzle when it comes to monitoring jobsites. Whether you’re an owner or a property manager of a high-rise condominium/apartment, P&O Global Technologies can be one of your many solutions to help you protect your building and develop new technologies that can take your condominium to new levels of safety.
