RAAC School Rebuilding Programme (SRP)

Specialist support from our approved RAAC Technical Advisors & Client Representatives.
When it comes to our RAAC SRP service, we provide expert advice and technical support at cost-effective rates.
AEC are established, experienced and approved technical advisors with the Department for Education, supporting establishments through the identification, mitigation, remediation and removal of RAAC. With a team of specialist project managers, we are well placed to act as your client representative and technical advisor, ensuring a seamless transition and journey through the SRP process.
What we offer…
At AEC, we can provide both technical advisor and client representative support, to guide and assist you through your SRP project.

The School Rebuilding Programme will enable buildings with RAAC confirmed to remove the bubbly-like concrete, either via the rebuilding or refurbishment of structures. Establishments assigned within the SRP, are likely to be extensive and complex schemes, therefore, external support and guidance from specialists will ensure your focus can remain on teaching and learning.

Our offerings extend to the following services:

  • Initial consultation in review of DfE discussions to date
  • Review of RAAC status, inclusive of current locations and any mitigation in place
  • Review of planned SRP project timeframe and implications on the school
  • Advise on the anticipated next steps / stages and DfE requirements of the school
  • Attend all DfE meetings as school technical representative
  • Attend post meeting reviews and assist with action points
  • Review DfE scope proposals for the RAAC removal, building replacement or refurbishment works
  • Add technical comment / input to ensure school requirements and expectations will be achieved
  • Oversee DfE appointed consultants and contractor
  • Attend formal progress meetings and inclusion within project correspondence as school representative. Add comment and answer any questions from the school
  • Assist with DfE project monitoring

Why do I need a Technical Advisor / Client Representative?

The SRP can be a time-consuming process, with continued communication required between the school, DfE and contractor. A specialist and experienced technical advisor and client representative, such as AEC, will ensure your Leadership Team can focus on teaching, and education is at the forefront.

  • Instructing an industry professional to act on your behalf, will ensure the schools interests are at the forefront of the project, providing added reassurance that the DfE appointed project team will deliver on school expectations and requirements.
  • If there is slippage on scope, quality, programme and associated disruption, a school representative can foresee these issues, raise with the DfE on behalf of the school and assist with resolutions.
  • If there are any technical, legal or contractual concerns, the school representative can advise for reassurance and add knowledge.
