A good construction site access control NYC strategy is extremely complex but you can trust Sanico USA to make it all simple. We have been in the construction business for over 30 years and have an understanding of your needs as well as what the local laws require. We also have plenty of access control options to cover your security, safety and employee attendance needs. Jobsites that are equipped with controlled access in place have much better management/tracking of who is on a specific job site and when. Permit holders and construction companies also greatly reduce the risk of major fines by being able to produce a proper daily attendance log for all the workers on a particular job site. This is mandated by Local Law 196 in New York City and we can help you get educated on other local laws and site requirements to keep your project safe, secure and on schedule! We also provide commercial disinfecting services.


Why Access Control


We are sure you know at least one reason to implement access control on your sites, but did you know someone on your site without proper training can cost you up to $5000 per untrained worker? A civil penalty of $2500 can be enforced for not having an accurate log of your trained employees on site as well. Using our card access or full height turnstiles help mitigate these policies while also adding another layer of security. They also help keep the site clear of pedestrians and other passerby.

When To have acces control


Sanico USA works with you during all stages of construction, from the day you break ground all the way to the final hours of the ribbon cutting ceremony. Our systems can start operating on day one, recording time and attendance of all authorized employees. We have many different solutions depending on the stage of construction and how many employees need to be recorded at a single time. Some of our high capacity thermal camera systems can record up to 40 employees at a time.

How we deploy access control


As we mentioned we have a large selection of solutions depending on what stage of construction you are in, the size of the site, which local laws apply  and the number of workers. Sanico USA can deploy a single station that only records time and date via facial recognition or a digital card reader. Half height and Full height turnstiles are the ultimate in protection with both facial recognition or access card readers options. Permanent or temporary card access readers can be installed when the building is secure with doors.

Construction Site Access Control NYC

Here at Sanico USA, construction site access control NYC is one the most critical services we offer and we know this can dramatically effect profit margins, site safety and project schedules. Give us a call or send us an email to learn more or to schedule a complimentary consultation.


4 reasons you should have access control installed on your NYC construction site:


Some parts of NYC on the busiest days can see over a half million pedestrians pass by and that can lead to disaster, especially this day in age when many are walking with their face in their cell phone. With that number of people passing by it would be easy for someone to find themselves in the middle of your project. Other pedestrians may take advantage of an opening on a job site to shave some time off their foot commute. With our systems in place this becomes just about impossible, greatly reducing the risk of your negligence and possible lawsuits from injury.


You know better than anyone the investment into tools, equipment and supplies is enormous and with or access control systems in place we can greatly reduce the risk of items going missing. By installing proper perimeter fences with secured gates and turnstiles our clients experience a huge reduction in theft. Larger more expensive items are difficult if not impossible to get through our turnstiles and unauthorized personnel do not have easy access to your site. We also offer Body Temp Sensing Cameras with facial recognition.

As we mentioned above keeping the correct data logs can be extremely time consuming and almost impossible. Whether it is for your immediate employees or your subcontractors workers we can deploy systems that track everyone who entered and exited the site as well as the time and specific gate. By using facial recognition we also know access cards were not given to unauthorized personnel or used to clock in by one employee trying to cover for another. Body temp sensing devices can also be used to assure everyone is arriving to work healthy and not spreading any illness. Check out our Guest Tracking solutions here.


Besides theft, one of the other biggest losses is time. If workers or subcontractors are not being tracked and are not showing up it can go unnoticed, putting you behind schedule. Having to use manpower to produce local law 196 documents can also put you behind not to mention the chaos if you are shut down for these violations. As you can see having an access control system saves a lot of time and possible unforeseen headaches.



Sani-Secure has complete half height turnstile solutions that have bio-metric options, including body temperature sensing, fever detection and facial recognition software. These are great for interior job sites requiring time & attendance. They also add another layer of safety to any office, work site or public space. These turnstiles are available with or without facial recognition and can be custom programmed to fit your exact application through our software engineers. 



NYC is not only one of the most pedestrian populated cities but unfortunately has the some of the highest crime rates. With more people and more crimes comes a bolder criminal. We always recommend our full height turnstile to make sure your construction site has the best security. These devices also come with the bio metric options mentioned above.  


Our card readers can be installed temporarily while the facility is still undergoing construction or we can install a permanent device that you can hand over to the new tenants. Either way you will get all the same data and features available with our onsite turnstiles plus a little more of an aesthetic look.
