What is RAAC?

Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC) is a lightweight building material known for its exceptional strength and insulating properties. RAAC is renowned for its low density, making it lighter than traditional concrete, yet it maintains durability and fire resistance. It is commonly used in construction for its energy-efficient and environmentally friendly qualities, as it reduces energy consumption and carbon emissions while providing strong structural support.

RAAC was a popular method of construction during the 50’s – 90’s and has a recommended life span of no more than 30 years. With recent investigations, RAAC is commonly found in many schools, healthcare units and other public spaces, resulting in immediate closure.

What are the solutions?

We believe that the most effective and efficient approach to minimise disruption and long-term building closures would be to construct a new, future-proof building as a replacement for the existing RAAC-infected structure.

Modular buildings offer a quick, and more sustainable solution to ensure you return to your daily commitments. Firstly, with a modular building, you can choose from either a permanent or temporary solution to fit the requirements of your needs. You can design and we’ll manufacture your very own modular building to align with your demands and accommodate the needs of those who will use it.

Additionally, you can choose to hire a solution if purchasing is out of your budget.
