Since then, we’ve been working with a specialist external consultant to inspect a small number of buildings we’ve identified as being worthy of a closer look. So far, no RAAC has been found.
We still believe the risk to be very low, and the use of RAAC in our buildings is likely to be very limited.
We’ll continue our investigations and should we identify any buildings where RAAC is present, we’ll inform our residents immediately and ensure they’re kept updated about the next steps.
WHAT IS RAAC?
Reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete (RAAC) is a lightweight material that was used mostly in flat roofing, but also in floors and walls, between the 1950s and 1990s.
