Working with RAAC? BigChange has Your Back!
20 September 2023
In light of recent concerns surrounding the safety of Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC) in buildings across the UK, the importance of prompt, precise, and efficient inspections has never been more important. The construction and engineering sector is on the front line, ensuring that buildings are safe to be used.
So, how can modern tech solutions, like BigChange, help in this challenging task? Let’s delve into some of the ways BigChange is supporting companies on the front line.
🏢 1. Risk Assessments at Your Fingertips 🏢
Safety is top priority when dealing with RAAC inspections. BigChange provides dynamic risk assessments that can be tailored for specific sites or tasks. We offer an integrated system that makes sure these assessments are read and signed by the appropriate professionals, before the job can be started. This not only ensures that every procedure is followed accurately but also offers a transparent record for accountability.
📸 2. Photo Documentation for Thorough Reporting 📸
A picture is worth a thousand words, especially in the context of structural safety. Using BigChange digital job sheets allows engineers to effortlessly take photos on-site and attach them directly to the job. This offers a clear visual record and can prove invaluable for tracking deterioration or highlighting areas of concern.
📜 3. All Your Docs in One Spot 📜
When on-site, engineers need immediate access to a variety of documents – from site plans to previous inspection reports. With BigChange, all relevant documents can be attached directly to the job, ensuring you have information right at the right time.

At the moment, there is very high demand for inspections to take place. BigChange’s real-time job tracking and smart scheduling means that engineers can be swiftly dispatched to areas of concern, ensuring rapid responses when they matter most.
