A series of hangars and office facilities for the Nigerian Military to be built in Benin City, Nigeria by Rubb Building Systems in Sanford, Maine, McAfee Design, and Genesis Environmental Construction.

The Nigerian Military turned to McAfee Design in Atlanta, Georgia to develop a series of hangars and office facilities in Benin City, Nigeria. McAfee partnered with Genesis Environmental Construction in Dallas, Texas, to fulfill structural requirements for the office buildings. Genesis then contracted Rubb Building Systems in Sanford, Maine to provide the hangar portion of the project.

“Nigeria is a hard place to get a building up,” said President and CEO of Genesis, Matt Daniel, “But Rubb made it, and the building looks great.”

The BVE Range Rubb Hangar is 124’ (37.8m) wide x 200’ (61m) long with 26.2’ (8m) sidewalls. It includes a 92’ (28m) wide x 26.2 (8m) high 4-panel bi-parting Alamo Door System, as well as lighting and ventilation. Rubb’s unique design allows for the building to be erected in a short time frame with a low maintenance membrane that reflects heat and allows for natural daylight to illuminate the interior. The hangar is fully integrated with the attached office building provided by Genesis.

“I was very impressed by the character of the sales team,” said Daniel, “We’ll definitely use Rubb again.”

The Rubb organization with production facilities in the United States, Great Britain, and Norway, is recognized as a world leader in the design, development, and manufacture of relocatable structures.
