SiBCAS Ltd. Offers Support Amidst Widespread Building Concerns

In light of the growing concerns due to the alarming discoveries surrounding Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC) in UK public buildings, SiBCAS Ltd., with over 50 years of experience in the education sector, is ramping up its efforts to address the increasing demand for temporary accommodations.

Recognising the profound implications of these recent findings, SiBCAS remains committed to delivering essential support to affected communities. Our modular building solutions offer an adaptable, high-quality, and immediate remedy to the pressing needs.

What is RAAC?

RAAC, a once-popular lightweight building material, was extensively used in regions like the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa from the 1950s to the mid-1990s. Initially hailed for its affordability and ease of installation, later evaluations raised concerns over its durability.

It’s now understood to be susceptible to collapse when exposed to moisture. It has an estimated lifespan of only about 30 years. This widespread usage poses a challenge extending beyond schools, reaching as far as hospitals, housing blocks, airports, theatres, and other public buildings.

The RAAC Controversy in the UK

Incidents like the roof collapse at Singlewell Primary School in Kent have thrown the RAAC issues into sharp relief. The severity of the situation is underscored by the revelation that over 174 schools have been currently identified as having RAAC-related concerns. This has resulted in schools adopting various measures like hybrid learning models and temporary classroom accommodations. However, the problem goes beyond educational institutions. RAAC is being identified in many public buildings across the UK, with venues such as the Motherwell Concert Hall and Theatre who have had to shut their doors because of RAAC.
