Are You At Risk?

Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC) is a material used in construction in many buildings between the 1960s and 1990s. Its presence has been confirmed in a range of public sector properties across the United Kingdom including schools and hospitals.

RAAC is not like traditional concrete in that it isn’t made with aggregate. It’s less durable and has a shorter lifespan of around 30-years. That’s the main reason why some of it is now running the risk of failure, especially where it’s not been well maintained. RAAC can be found in all building types, not just schools, libraries, leisure centres, police stations, public buildings. The issue seems to be identifying the product. Our qualified surveyors are able to ascertain if it is present in any of your buildings. So, if you are worried about this subject or suspect that you may have some structures with this issue, please get in touch with the Surveying Cymru team for more information.
