Environmental Buildings

Rubb’s environmental building solutions has provided a variety of structures for remediation projects where internal environment control is mission critical.

Remediation, Waste Management and Tank Covers

Remediation and waste management facilities meet all health and safety requirements and environmental protection laws.


Rubb tank covers are designed for the environmental treatment of water, chemicals, fuel, and sewage. Rubb can design and engineer speciality sealed structures for the containment of asbestos and other harmful materials. 


Rubb structures can be effectively sealed to provide a negative-pressure enclosure, ideal for environmental engineering.


Once a site has been cleaned up, the shelter can be used again and again – providing a return on investment (ROI) that far exceeds that of a traditional structure. Covers can be readily decontaminated to be used again or to be recycled when appropriate.


Reuse, Recycle, or Relocate – Rubb environmental building solutions provide long term value.

Environmental Structure Types

Rubb can provide custom designed environmental warehouses and tank covers in a variety of configurations and sizes to suit your specific requirements.

Rubb THA Shelter

THA Shelter

THA Rubb shelters are available in 6m, 8m, 10m, and 12m spans with 3.3m high sidewalls. These shelters can be supplied by any length in 3m modules.

Rubb BVR Structure

BVR Structure

The BVR features rectangular leg and roof box sections. This takes up less space and provides more overall internal clearance. This design is a popular choice for bulk storage buildings.

Rubb NV Structure

NV Structure

The NV was the first steel truss span building by Rubb. The design originated in Norway and has a vertical sidewall. The high arch of the roof makes this profile ideal for bulk storage.

Rubb BVE Structure type

BVE Structure

BVE structures feature lattice frame sidewalls and can be designed with single or multiple lattice roof pitches. Span widths start from 20m to 40m, by any length.
