Relocation and extension for Barrier Ltd

Rubb relocated and extended two blast and paint facilities for international coatings company Barrier Ltd.

Barrier Ltd’s specialist coatings division offers a comprehensive range of surface preparation and surface coating, which includes shotblasting, thermal spraying of aluminium and passive fire protection, as well as specialist paint systems.

Barrier had been using two 20m span x 24m long Rubb NV type buildings featuring 5m x 5m roller shutter doors in each front gable end. The structures’ sidewalls measure 3m high and the covering fabric includes Goosewing grey walls and a white translucent roof.

These buildings were originally supplied and erected at Hadrian Way, Wallsend, in 2014, but had been dismantled and stored following completion of a number of projects there. The yard is now operated by Smulders Projects UK.

In 2017 Barrier approached Rubb for a relocation and extension solution. Both buildings were extended from 24m long to 30m long and constructed at a different location at the Smulders UK site, to support ongoing projects and requirements.

Ken McLean said: “The buildings have worked out fine and we are just about to successfully complete the Aberdeen Bay project for Smulders Projects UK. The Rubb buildings have been used as blasting and painting facilities for jacket legs and bracings on this project.”
