Design Criteria

Rubb buildings are designed in accordance with UK Building Regulations with respect to wind and snow loads. The design is in strict accordance with the relevant British Standards or Eurocodes. We can also offer buildings around the world designed to suit local conditions and code requirements. Our past projects have been designed to sustain wind speeds up to 135mph and snow loads up to 500kg/m². The building framework and cladding membrane are structurally analysed using appropriate non-linear techniques and software.
