Maher Terminals, one of the world's largest independent multi-user container terminal operators, recently purchased and installed two Rubb BVR structures for their Port Elizabeth, New Jersey facility. As a vital link in the cargo movement chain, Maher is responsible for helping customers compete in the world marketplace by handling their cargo as expeditiously and economically as possible. This is achieved by the development of innovative cargo documentation and management systems. Maher also constantly enhances their facilities and upgrades their equipment.

The two new buildings each measure 50' (15.24m) x 83.3; (25.4m) with 19.7' (6m) sidewalls. Placed approximately 200m apart, the buildings are used for equipment and vehicle repair.

The design and quality of the structure provides a safe and ergonomic working environment, with the galvanized steel frame allowing maximum use of the available space and the partially translucent roof providing a natural, balanced source of light.

The configuration of the buildings were based upon specific requirements from the client. Facility number one required access for two vehicles simultaneously and was designed with two separate roller shutter doors side by side allowing for access to the front. Facility number two has one vehicle entrance at the front. Both buildings also have personnel access via a single door at the front and have the addition of external lighting.

Rubb structures have proven to be ideal as port buildings, one of the key features being a high tensile strength flexible PVC-coated polyester architectural membrane cladding that does not corrode in marine climates or saline environments. These structures have been so successful that Rubb has been contracted to supply a further three BVRs for general material and equipment storage and a BVE type building to be used for salt and sand storage.
