Last Updated on October 4, 2023

RAAC has been a big issue in the national news. Many municipal buildings in England were built with RAAC (reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete), and it has become apparent that using this type of concrete may affect the safety and longevity of buildings.

The problem – RAAC in schools

Days before the school year started, many schools told parents that their children couldn’t begin the term as planned. There are serious concerns about the risk of collapse, so some schools in England have delayed the start of term.

We have a large stock of shipping containers that can be delivered and installed at schools. A standard shipping container is perfect for storage. Containers are strong, secure and simple to purchase (or hire).

Has the Department for Education, or local government informed you that you must empty your school buildings but you have nowhere to store all your furniture? A standard shipping container, available to rent, or to buy is the answer to your storage problems.
