Well, I've been around the block on construction sites myself for about 40 years for a living and profession.

I think that it's pretty obvious that a laborer doesn't have that, and good luck with that with the DA.
We haven't talked much about the ethics of our hobby, but if I knew I was not being straight up with folks, I wouldn't do it.

My father was a voyageur; he died while on a voyage. I will also die while en route, and another Chicot will take my place. Such is our course of life."

Bum Luck is absolutely correct:
"I don't think that 'anyone' has the authority to grant you access to the site, and it may be a legal problem for them, as well as you."
In legal/court/contract situations, only certain people who work for X company have the authority to make decisions/sign documents etc. If permission is given or a document/contract signed by anyone other than those with authority, not only is the permission or document void, but the person who gave permission or signed can be held liable. Depending on the circumstances, liability could be as "simple" as that person losing their job or having a lawsuit drawn against them by X company and/or the other party. In any case I certainly would not want to be the one to start such a storm just because I wanted to hunt a site so badly.

IT COULD BE A VALUABLE PRIZE "YOU NEVER KNOW"
Well all i can say about this.........is........ that you were denied access........ So that means you can not go in there .. And there is nothing we can do about it and nothing you can do about it......... End of story...........

Ask for the GC.... General Contractor. He is "the voice" of the owner. I don't know if this was mentioned. I did not read all posts in entirety. TTC
