RAAC Roof Systems: Ensuring Building Safety with Gallaway Construction
Understanding RAAC Roofs
Introduced primarily in the 1960s and 1970s, Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC) became a popular choice in building construction. While it provided some benefits at the time, recent reports have identified potential deterioration concerns with this material, especially in buildings that have stood for decades.
The Government’s Report
The Department for Education has recently highlighted concerns regarding buildings, notably schools, constructed with RAAC. They are urging establishments to be prepared with contingency plans, especially if rapid evacuations become necessary due to structural concerns.
