Review, refurbish, regenerate
10 November 2015
The UK MoD has been using Rubb Military buildings for more than 35 years and has more recently seen the benefits of the company’s EFASS post-use storage, assessment and refurbishment service.
In 2010 work began on the construction of six Rubb military warehouses for Operation Herrick in Afghanistan. The Expeditionary Forces Aircraft Shelter System structures measured 100m in length and featured span widths of 25m. These structures, among others, will be returning to Rubb in 2015/2016, with the first two arriving back at the Gateshead plant to be converted into five new aircraft hangars.
Rubb sales manager, Andy Knox, says: "When the first 25m x 100m returns, we will inspect it, clean it and make any necessary repairs so it is fully refurbished. We will then add the components needed to turn this IFPD building into two shorter hangars measuring 25m x 40m, each featuring one Heli-Door and one closed gable end.”
