Rubb MRO hangar receives full cleaning service

Rubb has recently provided a full cleaning service for our MRO hangar at Aerohub Enterprise Zone at Cornwall Airport, Newquay.

Rubb can provide a professional building cleaning service for any Rubb structure. Rubb’s buildings are built to last, so it’s no surprise that dirt and debris can naturally build up over time. This service carefully refreshes the Rubb facility, making the project look brand new and increasing the building’s life-cycle.

Rubb originally designed, manufactured, and constructed the hangar back in 2014. The 47m span x 50m long MRO hangar is now being used by STS Aviation.

Rubb constructed the main steel framework for the hangar and then fixed Thermohall® insulated PVC cladding to the structure to create its roof and walls. The hangar has the capacity to accommodate the storage, maintenance, repair and overhaul of large fixed wing aircraft, such as a Boeing 737 and an Airbus A320.

The hangar project is managed by Cornwall Council and was funded by the Council and the Government’s Regional Growth Fund.

Ian Radford, Director of Information & Technology, Property and Facilities at STS Aviation Services commented, “STS Aviation Services operate a Rubb Hangar at Cornwall International Airport, which formed part of the operational facilities for the recent G7 conference held in Cornwall. To ensure the hangar was looking its best STS contracted Rubb to complete an external clean of the facility. From start to finish the Rubb  team were highly professional and accommodating, completing a thorough clean of the facility whilst facing difficult weather making access challenging. As part of the works onsite, the Rubb team also completed a last minute request to install temporary branding on the facility for the G7 event. This required production of artwork, manufacture and installation of a large PVC banner on the facility, all of which was completed within a 5 day period. Henry and his team were great to work with, they rose to every challenge and delivered a gleaming hangar as if it were new!”

Rubb USA also recently supplied two MRO hangars to STS Aviation in Melbourne, Florida. The project includes two 46m span x 62.5m long x 10m sidewall AVC structures, installed side-by-side with a centre gutter/downspout system.
