Worried owners and managers of public buildings are being offered expert support to navigate recent RAAC challenges.

Those with responsibility for buildings across education, health, councils, government, the NHS and blue light services are now being urged to take up the offer of free specialist guidance on the RAAC controversy.

Taking place on October 5th, the event will address confusion among building managers and owners, arising from the influx of conflicting information regarding risks, necessary actions, and potential liabilities in the wake of RAAC.

Hosted at the Scottish Procurement Alliance, (SPA) headquarters in Livingston, the event will leverage the expertise of industry leaders Goodson Associates and Hadden Group.

Those attending can expect to learn about strategies for identification, management, mitigation, remediation, identifying qualified suppliers as well expediting the repair process.

Lesley Anderson, Regional Director for SPA, which is Scotland’s largest free-to-join procurement organisation with more than 600 live projects worth £1.1bn, said the event would equip building owners with comprehensive knowledge to tackle the challenges effectively.

Speaking ahead of the event, Lesley said: “At a time when everyone is worried about this issue, we hope to bring some calm and reassurance.

Public safety is paramount in light of the RAAC crisis, but there is also a lot of hype and misinformation surrounding the whole issue.

Therefore, it is vital that those with responsibility for public buildings can get assured and expert advice to plan their next steps appropriately.

The event is certainly one not to miss as we’ll have experts from Goodson Associates who will offer valuable insights into the identification of issues, assessment of risks, effective management, and comprehensive remediation solutions.”
