To support economic growth, UK ports process 500 million tonnes of freight per year and around 22 million international passengers. Rubb structures play a big part in making sure cargo is kept secure and protected from the elements. Rubb port structures can be custom designed to meet a variety of bulk handling operations. Modular, temporary and semi-permanent fabric buildings are a cost effective alternative to traditional warehouses.
These design advantages allow Rubb structures to easily adapt to the changing requirements of the end user in a busy port environment. Large clear spans and high translucent ceilings provide a bright, efficient working spaces. Rubb storage warehouses are built to UK building codes but are fully relocatable, extendable and moveable to meet changing needs.
Rubb structures have been supporting Forth Ports at the Port of Tilbury since 1990. With over 10 warehouses provided, Rubb has seen buildings, extended, relocated and reconfigured to suit the changing requirements of the ports end users. Rubb alternative storage solutions allow the port to react very quickly to customers’ requirements and construct covered warehouse facilities at very short notice. Ports and marine developments, which are often built on reclaimed land, can also be prone to differential settlement. Rubb fabric structures are not only lighter than traditional fixed buildings, they can accommodate this differential settlement.
