Miller workforce fingerprinted before allowed on site

18 Jun 13 Contractors working on the new Avon & Somerset police facilities being built by Miller Construction are finger-printed every time they go on site.

All visitors also get the CSI treatment.

Miller is building four separate police stations as part of its £102m Blue Light Partnership PFI with Bilfinger Berger Project Investments. The construction element is worth £72m.

The strict site security is part of a package of measures – a biometric access control solution – provided by PermanexCCS. Each site has a purpose-built ‘quick drop’ cabin that has been specifically branded for Miller Construction. Everyone visiting or working at the construction sites has their fingerprints scanned and checked against computerised records before they can go on site each day.

Like all site-visit records, the fingerprint information is kept on file but only for the duration of the project.

“We are also looking to provide additional site security at each of the four sites including sophisticated CCTV cameras to further protect the construction sites and restrict access to pre-qualified individuals,” said PermenexCCS sales director Oliver Cox.
