In recent times, the use of Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC) in building structures has raised concerns about its structural integrity and potential risks. At FRC, we understand the importance of addressing these concerns and providing reliable solutions. With a team of skilled Engineers and Chartered Surveyors, we offer comprehensive Structural Building Condition Surveys focused specifically on RAAC.

Identifying and Assessing the Condition of RAAC Elements

Ageing structures with RAAC panels can be susceptible to sudden failure and deterioration. It is crucial to identify these issues and assess the condition of RAAC elements to ensure the safety and longevity of the building. Our experts conduct meticulous inspections, including visual assessments, measurements, non-destructive testing, and intrusive investigations when necessary. Through this thorough evaluation, we can identify existing or potential issues that could compromise the structural stability and safety of the building.

Comprehensive Surveys and Detailed Reports

Our surveys go beyond surface-level inspections. We conduct in-depth examinations of various structural components, including foundations, load-bearing walls, columns, beams, and roof structures. After completing the survey, we provide a detailed report that encompasses our findings and recommendations. The report includes clear descriptions, photographs, and diagrams, enabling you to gain a thorough understanding of any identified issues. Our aim is to guide you towards necessary repairs, maintenance, or further investigations to ensure the long-term structural integrity of the building.

Ensuring Building Safety and Compliance Under the Building Safety Act 2022

In addition, it is important to note that under the Building Safety Act 2022, those responsible for buildings have a legal obligation to conduct Safety Case investigations. As trusted experts in the field, we strongly advise the inclusion of a Structural Condition Survey in all Safety Case Reports. By incorporating this survey into the overall safety assessment, you can enhance safety measures and significantly reduce the risk of accidents or incidents within your buildings.
