“We are happy to have received our Rubb.”
Luc Audoore | Deputy General Manager, CAE Aviation
“The Rubb team who worked on site were absolutely first class. The first steel went in the ground on December 14 and by May 19 we were able to introduce the first aircraft into the hangar.
“The successful delivery of this project, which has been challenging both in terms of scale and its timeline, is another example of what can be achieved through easyJet’s innovative and lean approach, not only meeting a tight timeline, but also creating strong sustainable partnerships to deliver market leading operational performance.”
Brendan McConnellogue | Head of Maintenance, easyJet
"The building provides an excellent standard of warm and dry facilities in a very harsh environment, with all of the space and functions required for 24-hour SAR and two crew-change S-92s. The hangar includes a decontamination unit for post-rescue use by SAR rear-crew. It also has the capacity to house a fourth aircraft.”
Adrian Rose | Operations and Service Delivery Manager, Bristow Group
“When I visited the site we have in the UK, I noticed the shelters there were looking good. As we needed storage facilities during outage, I thought these shelters would be a good solution for us. The sales engineer advised us what tent we needed to suit our requirements and we ordered two different sizes. The industrial tents were set up on time under the supervision of Rubb, and we have been successfully using them during the outage. We are very satisfied with the shelters, which are solidly built. I would like to thank Rubb Buildings Ltd for the materials and services they delivered. I would recommend Rubb to other companies if they are looking for the same kind of shelters.”
Bram van Beest | NL Buyer, MaasStroom Energie
“NHV UK are very impressed with Rubb’s professionalism, service and quality product, and would have no hesitation in using them for similar projects in the future. Rubb provided various options for consideration - cost, build options, sizes etc - and managed to use locally based companies where they could, which was very important to the community due to the remoteness of the location. NHV, the airport and the community fully supported the project and are very impressed with the hangar built by Rubb, which will hopefully attract more business to operate from Wick Airport and provide more work for the area too.”
Colin Hancy | Commercial Manager NHV UK
“The facilities at the new hangar and base are excellent. It is an ideal location to operate from in order to service Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.”
Sergeant Neil Cartwright | NPAS Bournemouth Base Manager
“In the period before construction begins and we subsequently move into our new facility next year, we needed to create temporary production areas that would support the delivery of current contracts and also increase the capacity for the manufacture of fire rated valve boxes for the international oil and gas market.”
Robert Bowles | Barrier Group Chairman
“The key advantage for Barrier in working with Rubb is their ability to engineer practical, cost effective solutions and deliver them within very tight project timescales.”
Ken McLean | Barrier Ltd Project Manager
“The quality of the workmanship from the design drawings and loading calculations was impeccable and visits to site from design engineers and directors assisted in a smooth program of works. The site team worked self-sufficiently and without disruption to our busy daily works and provided two first class liftable buildings and two gable end walls efficiently, to budget, on time and to a very high specification.
“Between Rubb and ourselves we have been able to create two separate cells 30m (W) x 35m (L) x 19m (H) with the ability to remove the roof off with either of our 840T gantry cranes using a specialist lifting beam and arrangement. Moving forward we would happily work with Rubb again on increasing our facilities.”
Chris McNally | Harland and Wolff Heavy Industries Maintenance Operations Manager
"It is fantastic. It is currently being used by the Academy youngsters and has been described as the best indoor football training facility at club level in the country. Rubb Buildings provided a solution that is bespoke to our requirements. The company's flexibility facilitated changes in the overall facility footprint and height in accordance with planning conditions to ensure the available space was maximised. The team stepped outside their comfort zone in terms of the overall finish of the building, which shows the diversity of the product and service that Rubb provides."
Peter Weymes | SAFC Facilities Manager
“We find one of the strongest facets of the building is its versatility. It facilitates a wide range of sports: athletics, tennis, badminton, volleyball, netball and basketball. Its principal use is for soccer and training for Gaelic football and hockey. The facility has obviously raised the profile of the district which at the end of the day is a small, rural area – but Meadowbank Multi Sports Arena is now seen as a regional and national facility.”
John McClaughlin | Chief Executive Officer of Magherafelt District Council
“From the initial meeting and draft proposal, Rubb Buildings Ltd proved to be a highly proficient company. Their understanding and knowledge of our requirements was outstanding and their professionalism continued from initial design through the build stage to completion.
Due to the commitment and skill of everyone involved, the whole production programme of works was completed efficiently, on time, to our high specifications and with as little disruption to our existing business as was possible. We have no hesitation in recommending their services.”
Rebecca Allcock, Managing Director
"Rubb Buildings supported us throughout all aspects of the project from initial concept design to construction completion. It was clear from the outset that Rubb were determined to deliver what was their most challenging build ever in the most professional way possible on a project that had an almost impossible timescale.
"Working on a renewable energy project in the UK brings its own challenges, however, combine this with constructing within a world heritage site of which Ironbridge is, really increases the need and focus to operate efficiently and to achieve a build that is aesthetically pleasing. The real breath of fresh air for AJS was to work with a UK turnkey contractor, a company who can design, manufacture and install the complete package, providing auditable quality procedures and more importantly an excellent understanding of UK Health, Safety and Environmental regulations removes additional pressure from the principle contracting team.
"Rubb Buildings have developed a biomass facility that can be rolled out globally across the renewable industry sector and AJS Contracts would be more than happy to recommend their services to any prospective client."
Martin Wylie | AJS Contracts Ltd, Renewable Energy Divisional Manager
"We chose Rubb for their reputation in design, development and deployment of temporary hangars. The installation of our hangars was speedy and efficient, the project was completed on time and as promised."
Hareb Thani Hareb Al Dhaheri | Horizon Chief Executive Officer
“The indoor beach volleyball facility was used as an Olympic training venue. LeAF Campus hosted men’s and women’s international teams from Brazil, Greece, and Great Britain as they prepared to qualify for the London Olympics in 2012. The courts provide three full size match courts or four training courts and the international players believe it to be one of the best purpose built facilities in Europe.”
Martin Wylie | AJS Contracts Ltd, Renewable Energy Divisional Manager
“Our Sports College PE department is buzzing at a new heightened level, we now have a multi sports hub the size of four normal sports halls completed for us by Rubb. The Hub has dramatically increased the quality of teaching and learning within PE lessons, furthered our extra curricular provision and it provides a quality facility for hundreds of people from the local community every night. It has been phenomenal and the Rubb Sports Hub has made a massive impact on our pupils, staff and local community.”
David Carpenter | Paignton Community and Sports College Head of PE
"The new sports facility is an iconic building for both the school and wider communities. It has enabled us to enhance the sporting provision for our 1300 students and feeder primary schools; support the development of two growing sports of netball and tennis in the town, creating centres of excellence and generating new sporting opportunities for all. The netball hub is now at the heart of our school and community leisure provision and will provide a lasting legacy."
Mrs Denise May MBE | Director of Sport and Assistant Headteacher at Budehaven
St Mary’s is a school where sport is greatly valued and this generous donation and the expertise from Rubb allowed us to construct a facility to enhance and further develop our existing provision. However, with a finite budget, we needed a building to meet our varying needs, and to provide excellent value for money. The structure offered by Rubb more than fitted the bill; both the school and the local community are delighted with the sports hall we now have on site.
“The service provided by the Rubb team was outstanding; we were consulted at all stages of the project and were regularly updated on the progress of the build. The on-site team literally worked all day, every day to ensure that our sports hall was completed by the agreed deadline - as a client, we could not have asked for more.
“The superstructure provides a cost effective solution for indoor sports and activities. We have a large playing area (the equivalent of four badminton courts), which can be divided to allow the use of the hall for multi-sports. In addition, our facility has changing rooms and a large storage area.
“The St Mary’s Sports Centre allows us to offer our children an enriched physical education curriculum, which includes badminton, basketball, indoor football, cricket, volleyball, and even archery. A year on, we remain absolutely delighted with our facility, which has allowed us to continue to build upon the legacy of London 2012 and ‘inspire youth’ to sporting greatness.
“The children of St Mary’s Middle School are emphatic in their thanks to the Rubb team for helping the dream to become reality. As a school we now have a fantastic resource - the Rubb structure provides an affordable option for a first class facility, which has made a difference to the lives of our young people.”
The structure features Rubb’s signature galvanized internal steel frame clad with durable PVDF coated fabric, providing dark juniper green walls and a white translucent roof. This allows natural light inside for a bright playing environment which saves on added energy costs.
Within the building there are two partitions which create a 20m x 9m storage area and a 20m x 6m changing area at each gable end respectively. Two roller shutter doors provide access to and from the storage area via the hall and outside. Three metre high steel cladding protects the building’s external walls.
Carl Winch | Head Teacher
"The building has been a great asset to the young people for use especially during the winter months... We deliver Community Sports Leaders Awards in here and host boxing events for our national organisation. We also use it sometimes for fundraisers and social events... It is long lasting (it has lasted double the amount of time it was anticipated to). It is hard wearing. It is easy to manage and if you keep on top of any small tears or damaged laces then this prolongs its life... I have nothing but positive feedback for the company. Grant Davidson was always very helpful and Trevor who measured up was nice and Steve and John were extremely helpful, friendly and polite."
Lisa Barker | Monty Hind Senior Manager
"Rubb, and in particular Sales Engineer Ian Mackley, were very flexible with regard to Rockwool's specific requirements and timescale and provided the best value for money approach and consequently price. The installation team were very professional, quick, and also flexible, to suit Rockwool's changing demands. The result was an excellent looking and fine, robust insulation storage building. We are impressed!"
Neil Perry | Rockwool Projects and Energy Manager
"The project ran very smoothly from start to finish and Eon are delighted with the result. Site safety is paramount on Eon sites and they praised the Rubb team for their professionalism and safe working throughout their time there. We are optimistic that this success will be a springboard for further opportunities for the Rubb PACS partnership in the near future."
John England | PACS Power Utilities Director
"We are very happy with our Rubb storage building."
Rick Dyball | R-TEK LTD Production Team Leader
"During and after the 1982 conflict, the RAF used Rubbs as hangars and for storage, so we were familiar with the products. I'm sure that, locally, there would have been some scepticism as to whether the buildings would last the pace during our winter! But history records that they are a robust and durable product. Durability, delivery lead time, speed of construction and competitive pricing were the primary reasons we chose Rubb Buildings. From our initial contact through to site supervision we found the quality of service to be excellent."
Mike Luxton | Byron Marine
"All aspects of Rubb's work as the 'highest quality'"
"Thank you very much for your support and the good work your company has done in connection with the building at Piramides de Guimar. The people at the park and Mr Olsen are very pleased with the building."
Øyvind B. Kristiansen | Fred Olsen & Co
"I love this facility. It is a marvellous indoor sports arena which shows that, with the right surface, both hockey and track events can take place under the same roof. It can be used for a wide range of sports. It has a lovely café, beautiful changing rooms – I like coming here – it has a nice atmosphere.
"There is a track and field outside, so it is great for indoor and outdoor events. I think every province should have one of these. We didn't have anything like this in my day and if we did I would've thought I'd died and gone to Heaven."
Maeve Kyle | Irish Coach and Athlete
"I was delighted when I discovered there was a local company that could help fulfil my dreams of Soccarena."
Stewart Dawson | Chairman
“It was a real pleasure working with Rubb, and I cannot thank you enough for the excellent work that you have all put together for Bristow. The safety awareness, commitment, dedication and professionalism of the team have become the benchmark for other contractors we have engaged with on the base and for the airport as a whole and I thank you most sincerely for making this happen.”
Dapo Oyeleke | Area Manager Southern North Sea Bristow Helicopters Ltd
"Rubb Buildings Ltd has been an excellent company to work with. The company has provided Chesterfield Lawn Tennis Club with a state-of-the-art indoor tennis facility; we are all highly delighted with the arena. The three new indoor courts allow the club to open and function all year round, whatever the weather."
Paul Hatton | Head Coach at Chesterfield Lawn Tennis Club
"Rubb Buildings Ltd was responsible for the design, manufacture, assembly and all mechanical services relating to the aeroplane maintenance hangar. The project was completed to deadline and the hangar is already proving of great use to our company."
Brian Hetherington ? Scot Airways General Manager
"Rubb Buildings helped us to provide the best and most cost efficient answer to the needs of Sunderland Council to deliver on this project."
Marc Simpson | Robertson Simpson Ltd
"Rubb Buildings have been an excellent company to work with. Due to the demand for extra space, we needed a contractor who could supply a storage solution in a short period of time. We chose Rubb Buildings above their competitors due to their approach in offering a fast, cost effective storage solution."
Eric Randall | Director of Recycling at Bryson House
