Materials go missing from building sites everyday
Costing clients, industry, suppliers, etc, hundreds of millions of dollars every year
Here are some useful resources and information

Building site theft
Another way is to know exactly what materials are required using 3D Bim Material Quants and material tracking before and during your Build.
During site visits do a quick count, take photos,etc, make sure what's ordered is on site and more importantly used in your Build...you are paying for it

There has always been theft from building sites and its not just from those passing by looking for an opportunity but more likely tradies working for you or working in the street (inside job). Many times those I have known or their families or those who I had a lunch with in builder's shed stole or pilfered from me. Its just the way it is.
Luckily now with technology there is an opportunity to protect your property.
For less than 1k and the cost of internet connection you can set up Arlo (from Netgear) to give you real time alerts 24/7 on your phone and recordings in the cloud. I now get alerts even when cats wallabies and possums visit my cottage in tasmania.
You won't be disappointed with Arlo
