RAAC Query - Floor Construction

Innovation Versus Risk

Construction is frequently characterised as slow, dirty and expensive. It is definitely not considered High Tech. It seems everyone views as a problem that needs to be fixed, in order to bring construction into the 20th century. Designers are encouraged to develop creative solutions that will overcome these obstacles. New materials and construction methods are developed that will be stronger, lighter, more energy efficient, quicker and cheaper to produce.

The Solution to Your Planning Woes

Our planning system has many critics and is frequently seen as barrier to development, by both big business and private homeowners. It is blamed for adding costs, delays and even stopping development altogether. The press, politicians and businesses selling UPVC windows and solar panels like to perpetuate a myth that planning is a problem. If we just simplified, or got rid of planning restrictions, the world would be much better, and we could solve the climate crisis.

Importance of maintenance and repairs on roofs

Up In The Roof

Attic spaces can tell you a lot about a building. They tend to be the forgotten parts of a building awkward to access and move around in. They often reveal the original construction, later adaptations and sometimes attempts at repairs. The debris from previous work and defunct services are often left behind.
