Checkpoint BVR Structure

RAF Lakenheath, UK

Arrow down

Rubb worked with main contractor Keir Services to design, construct and install a BVR for the MoD.

The 12m span, 32m length, 5m leg structure was installed at Gate 8, RAF Lakenheath.

The structure will be used as a security inspection building before entrance to the American site for F-35s, due to increased traffic.

Included in this structure is 150mm Thermohall® insulated cladding, which will make sure heat is contained for a comfortable working environment.

The BVR is equipped with 2x 4.5m x 4.5m speed doors to the front and rear gable, as well as 2x standard fire access doors.

The structure features Rubb’s durable steel framework, which is hot dip galvanized to protect from corrosion.  The frame is fully covered with a high tenacity, flame retardant PVC-coated polyester fabric, which has a life expectancy of up to 25 years. Goosewing Grey cladding was requested for this structure

It has been great to be involved with what is now our 2nd project with the KVF team, everything went very well and the finished product speaks for itself. Rubb and Kier continue to enjoy a good working relationship of which we hope to build on in the future.

The first is a 20m x 40m BVR type structure, which will support operations relating to the construction of the new purpose-built facility for the F-35s.

Rubb is proud to support Keir Services and the MoD with their security systems.
