RAAC in public buildings: Kizzy Augustin in the media

Posted on 13 September 2023

Partner Kizzy Augustin has been featured in PropertyWeek and Facilities Management UK, discussing the discovery of Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC) in over 100 schools in England, and growing scrutiny over other public buildings.

PropertyWeek has reported on news that development giant Landsec has confirmed it will survey its buildings to look for the use of RAAC, while Facilities Management explores the closure of several theatres over fears of finding RAAC.

Kizzy commented: “While there is clearly an issue that has triggered the urgent survey of a number of schools, we must not forget the potential risks associated with lower-rise buildings, both residential and commercial, including hospitals, police stations and prisons as well as homes, offices and theatres.

There is a legal responsibility for owners, employers and those that use buildings in scope to ensure the health and safety of employees and non-employees, including members of the public and visitors.”
