Update on Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete - RAAC

Update on Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete - RAAC

Latest on affected buildings

You will be aware some buildings at our Old Aberdeen and Foresterhill campuses were closed a few weeks ago as a safety precaution following the identification in the roof space of Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete or RAAC.   

Following a huge amount of work there has been progress in supporting the reopening of some spaces, while work continues to develop solutions for other impacted buildings.  

We are hopeful that some lower ground areas of Headspace at Hillhead Student Village will reopen next term and, in the meantime, most services and facilities affected by the closure have been relocated elsewhere. 

Impacted buildings at Foresterhill are unlikely to be available for teaching in 2023/24, and work is underway to identify alternative teaching locations for bookings in Polwarth.   Prioritisation will be necessary to identify elements of medical teaching which must be accommodated at Foresterhill.    

However, knock-on impacts are unavoidable as re-timetabling takes place, and the patience and assistance of colleagues is requested.
