Design studios

 

Rubb design studio

Rubb’s design department works closely with our sales team to produce concept and planning drawings. Design engineers also work with the in-house production departments to produce innovating and efficient Rubb structures.

 

Rubb’s design team is involved from the start of a project to ensure we come up with best custom design for our clients. Clients are always supplied with alternative designs to suit specifications and budgets.

 

Once the project is given the green light, Rubb structural engineers will guide the design team to produce efficient drawings for steel production, with quality as the number one priority.

 

The Rubb design team works closely with experienced site supervisors to plan the construction and erection of the buildings. The team provides ongoing support throughout all design, manufacture and construction stages.

 

 

Frame systems

 

Rubb manufacturing plant

Steel and aluminum fabrication at Rubb begins with the purchase of materials from local steel providers. All materials are inspected before being passed on to the factory. Rubb uses a wide range of steel components from 25mm thick steel sheets for plasma cutting to rectangular, angle and hollow sections.

 

Material is then cut and shaped to the correct length shown on the design drawings. While raw materials are being prepared, Rubb’s fully qualified welding teams assemble jigs to fabricate legs, roofs and purlins. Teams work together efficiently along with the design department to manufacture all components. Assemblies are then ready to be visually checked by welding coordinators before going through the galvanizing procedure.

 

 

Cover technology

 

Working for Rubb in PVC fabric

The PVC fabric production process starts with Rubb quality 453 and 480 PVC impregnated polyester fabric material being ordered from a long-standing provider. All materials delivered to Rubb go through a visual and batch number inspection before being passed on to the factory. Rubb uses a wide range of PVC fabric colours depending on customers' specifications.

 

The PVC production team rolls out the material and cuts out the required section according to the designs provided by the drawing office. The PVC sections are then passed over to the welding team where the fabric is fusion welded together to create roof sheets, gable ends and sidewall drop sheets. Throughout this process, project superiors are visually checking all welds to ensure the best quality results.

 

All completed PVC sheets are then correctly folded and packed to project specific configurations to improve erecting time and to protect the PVC.

 

 

Construction teams

 

Rubb erection teams

The Rubb Group can supply building erection procedure documentation, site supervisors or fully dedicated construction teams to complete any custom project. Teams are fully trained with safety and quality as top priorities.

 

Rubb construction teams work on projects at the manufacturing stage, completing steel work preparation and fabrications. This procedure ensures teams are kept up to date with any changes, providing a greater understanding of the project and its construction requirements.

 

Rubb is committed to the principles and the implementation of all construction health and safety legislation including the construction (design and management) regulations 2007, which forms the basis of current site safety planning.
