Rubb today announced the construction of a new facility for BIR AS in Bergen, Norway, a site which features two NV fabric buildings constructed this year by the Rubb Group. The new facility is ideal for the unloading, storage, processing and recycling of waste material in a dry and wind free environment. BiR AS is Norway's second largest handler of waste/refuse and is responsible for handling refuse for 319,000 households across nine different councils.
All Rubb Buildings have hot dip galvanized steel frame (post production) ensuring lengthy lifespan for the steel structure (40 years plus) in the most hostile weather environments. Also the high quality PVC fabric used on the structures have proven lifespan in excess of 25 years dependant on the environmental conditions and has unique fire advantages over traditional buildings.
In the case of a fire within the structure, the fabric will melt away at sustained high temperatures. This will vent the structure and prevent the collapse of the structural steel. Like, other Rubb buildings, the Bergen facility's frame can be refitted with new vinyl in a matter of weeks, limiting disruption at the plant for the minimum time possible. Rubb also offers a number of different fabric solutions available to suit individual bulk storage building requirements such as a fabric 'mesh' being installed into the gable ends of the facility, providing natural ventilation but preventing waste material being blown outside.
One NV structure is 82' (25m) wide x 88' (27m) long with 13' (4m) sidewall and is fitted with two 20' (6m) wide x 23' (7m) high Crawford roller doors in one gable and the addition of a personnel door. The second NV is a 50' (15m) wide x 50' (15m) long with 13' (4m) sidewall and a large custom vertical lifting door specially designed for this building.
Design innovation by the team at Rubb ensures that customized solutions are always available. Partially translucent roofs reduce the need for artificial light during daylight hours, helping reduce energy costs and can contribute to a safer working environment. Rubb also offers enclosed waste/refused buildings with multiple vehicle access, as was constructed for Crewe & Nantwich Council in Crewe, United Kingdom.
