Procurement support for failing concrete in schools

We’ve almost 50 years’ experience in helping the public sector achieve the best possible value when buying products and services and we’re here to help you navigate the latest news about RAAC concrete affecting school buildings and how we can help you.

Currently, more than 150 schools in England have been identified as having a type of potentially dangerous concrete (RAAC) with many schools now closing buildings or classrooms to make them safe.

What is RAAC?

Reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete (RAAC) is a lightweight, aerated ‘bubbly’ form of concrete predominately used in the construction of public buildings from the 1950s to the early 1990s. It was mostly in flat roofing, but it can occasionally be found in floors and walls. RACC panels are usually 600mm wide and 2.4m long with a slight right-angled edge at each end often arch-shaped stripes. The surface is slightly crumbly when touched and easy to make a hole with a screwdriver.

The problems with RAAC have been known for the last 30 years but this concrete has made the news again due to new guidance that was issued in 2021 and 2022 about how to manage RAAC. The DfE sent out a questionnaire last year asking schools to provide information about the use of RAAC in schools across the country.

How can YPO help?

With the recent news of more schools being affected, we understand that you’ll be concerned about your public buildings. At YPO, we’ve got several services that can help you with anything you possibly need. Our expert team are on hand free of charge to help you through every step of the process, so please don’t get caught out by consultants charging you for these services.

How do I know if my building is safe?

Our Building Envelope Services – 880 covers inspection and survey services including asbestos surveying, working with our suppliers we will project manage the whole process, so you’ll feel comfortable knowing you are in safe hands.

If you have a supplier in mind you want to use and they’re not on our services, because it’s a DPS solution we can work with your preferred supplier and add them onto our services, so you can work with your own suppliers that you trust.

What do I need to do now?

If RAAC is found in your buildings, we can help you find temporary buildings such as mobile classrooms, temporary accommodation, and health care. Our Modular Buildings - 1004 is a simple low-cost way to help you address your needs in the design, fabrication, delivery, construction or installation of modular buildings.

We guide you through the procurement process, saving you time. We assure supplier standards and have pre-defined terms and conditions, taking the unnecessary stress away from you.

What are the next steps?

As part of our Building Envelope Services – 880 we can help you project manage, the installation, restoration and or maintenance of your buildings which covers everything from concrete repairs to roofing, scaffolding, asbestos removal, and demolition.

We have an Internal Fit-out and Maintenance – 882 service that can help you with the ongoing maintenance and refurbishments of your buildings, this service is suitable for both your smaller ad-hoc requirements and your long-term service projects.

This service is DfE-approved and offers everything you could possibly need to upkeep your buildings. We will work with you to agree on the level of support that you might need and provide you with templates, advice, and guidance to undertake a compliant procurement. Again, if you have a supplier in mind you want to use and they’re not on our services, we can work with your preferred supplier and add them to our services.

Put your trust in YPO

We know that these last few days may have been overwhelming for you, so we want to help you as much as we can. We can help you with everything you possibly need to make your public buildings safe.

We can help you with supplier engagement, advice on the specifications, project management, drafting the documentation and templates, running or supporting the evaluation process and awarding your suppliers. Or if you already know exactly what you need to do, you can use our services for a quick, hassle-free compliant procurement.
