Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC) – Mon 11th December 2023 18:00

Reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete (RAAC) is a form of lightweight concrete sometimes referred to as panels. It was used primarily in roof planks of some public buildings built between the mid-1950s and mid-1990s. Today, as can be seen in the press, it is a significantly topical subject matter.

Kieran Browne of Fairhurst will give an overview on RAAC to Aberdeen Association of Civil Engineers. This covers the history of the manufacture and use of RAAC as well as the maintenance and management of buildings with RAAC elements.

The event is held at the University of Aberdeen Fraser Noble Building, Room FN3. Also available as a live stream, link to follow on the day – start time 6.00pm.

Arrival for the presentation is 5.30pm for a 6.00pm start. Tea, coffee and sandwiches will be served from 5.30pm.
