Rubb helps Petrofac employees recharge

Leading FTSE 100 company Petrofac provides integrated services across the oil and gas industry in 29 countries worldwide. The firm’s Aberdeen branch contacted Rubb Buildings Ltd looking for a solution to provide 3,800 site employees with accessible facilities where they can relax and recharge.


The 9.1m span x 18.9m long RDS shelter has been designed for rapid deployment and erection using a minimum workforce and without the aid of mechanical handling equipment. The shelters provided can be easily connected together using access links. These can be incorporated into the gable ends and the sidewalls of other buildings.

Sales Manager Andy Knox said: “The building features our standard galvanized steel frame covered in light grey PVC. This particular shelter was designed to suit the high wind loads of the Shetland Islands and has been such a success we have since received orders for a further two buildings. It was a pleasure working with Petrofac. As the project developed we worked very closely to adapt the design to best suit their needs and this proved very successful.”
