Rubb has provided a solution for RNAS Culdrose, the largest helicopter base in Europe.

The 40m span x 55m long BVC will provide effective cover for the base’s Merlin helicopter squadrons. Easy access is provided by a 21.3m wide vertically-folding Heli-Door, electrically operated via two helical geared motors with capability for emergency hand operation.

Insulated with a 150mm Thermohall® membrane, additional protection for personnel and equipment is provided by 80mm of insulated steel cladding to sidewalls and gable walls. Complete with a modular office and workstations, personnel can perform their duties comfortably all year round.

Rubb is proud to assist this vital air station, which supplies aviators, engineers, and flight deck crews as they protect Royal Navy vessels from above the waves.
