Shelby are working with a range of clients to address RAAC issues within their buildings.
RAAC (Reinforced Autoclave Aerated Concrete) was a popular form of pre-cast concrete plank that was widely used in schools and hospitals in the 1960s, 70s and 80s. The material is very lightweight (think coral) but tends to fail when it gets overloaded or wet.
Our primary objective with RAAC is to protect the building user. Firstly, by implementing an inspection process to identify and record the condition of every RAAC panel. The plan to install supporting structures can then be developed to suit the use profile of the building ensuring minimal disruption where possible.
Talk to us about RAAC and how Shelby can help to keep to our most vulnerable people safe.
