Posted 22 August 2017 · Add Comment

An insulated building featuring Rubb's Thermohall technology has been installed at Clive Barracks at Tern Hill in the UK.



Rubb Buildings Ltd won a contract to provide Carillion Amey with a 25m wide x 48m long BVE type structure, which will be used as a storage warehouse.

The steel framed structure features Rubb’s Thermohall insulation system, which consists of a high-strength PVC layer and non-combustible glass wool insulation core inside an air-tight pocket and a self-cleaning PVC inner layer.

The insulated panel system provides a full vapour seal, which minimizes thermal bridging and reduces infiltration losses. This reduces condensation on framing members, improving insulation efficiency. The environmentally controlled structure helps facilitate air conditioning and internal heating.

The facility, with sidewalls of 5m high, was constructed on a purpose built foundation and includes two 4m wide x 5m high electrical roller shutter doors and four fire access doors.

Acting as main contractor, Rubb delivered the full turnkey project, which also included heating via an infrared system, LED lighting and a fire alarm system.

Phil Powell, Senior Project Manager for Carillion Amey, said: “Rubb delivered a quality product to a very high standard via their civils and installation teams.”
