The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) is to run a webinar on the issues surrounding Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC), which has made national headlines recently.
RAAC is a lightweight, aerated form of concrete, which was used to construct some public and private buildings between the 1950s and 1980s. It was typically used for roofs and occasionally in walls and floors.
The webinar from RICS will show some of the recent case studies, the latest research and what needs to be done going forward to ensure buildings in numerous sectors are safe and structurally sound. The date of the webinar will be announced.
The panel features:
- Trevor Rushton, FRICS FCABE ACIArb, Group Chairman, Watts
- Professor Chris Goodier PhD BEng(Hons) MCIOB FICT FHEA MCS DIS, Professor of Construction Engineering and Materials, Loughborough University
- George Ballard MA,MSc,FRICS, Director, GBG Group
