Nuclear Site Structures

Environmental Protection and Nuclear Site Structures

More and more environmental engineers are turning to Rubb for resourceful answers to prevent dust, gas and other forms of pollution from escaping into the environment.

Rubb buildings and covers can also assist in processes such as nuclear decontamination work, fuel protection and waste treatment by excluding light and providing stability to treatment procedures. They can be sealed to provide a ‘negative’ pressure environment, allowing contaminated air to be removed and processed.

Multiple Door Options

Rubb offers a range of door solutions to benefit nuclear decontamination operations. They can be selected and designed to suit all opening requirements. This flexibility ensures that our clients get the best option for their selected Rubb nuclear decommissioning or remediation support building type.

Rapid Construction, Installation and Relocation

Rubb nuclear site facilities can be designed, manufactured and constructed for remote locations in extreme weather conditions. Rubb can provide site supervisors or fully dedicated construction teams to complete any custom project.

Customisable Features

Nuclear decontamination work, fuel protection and waste buildings can accommodate all types of door, ventilation and safely support high loads imposed by overhead cranes to support all operations.

Flexible and Cost-Efficient Foundation Systems

Rubb nuclear site storage and decontamination warehouses can accommodate many foundation options such as concrete up-stand, ballast weights, and ground anchors into an existing surface. Rubb co-ordination with the groundwork contractor is key for the client to reach the most cost effective solution.

Reduced Time On-Site

Our established supply chain streamlines co-ordination of delivery and installation. Pre-fabricated elements and the ability to construct our structures in a variety of weather conditions speeds up the construction process.

High Quality Membrane

Energy-Efficient Roof Membranes

Translucent membranes allow natural daylight to illuminate the nuclear site support work space while the white roof surface reflects heat. Optional Thermohall® insulation minimises heat transfer, prevents condensation and virtually eliminates thermal bridging and air infiltration.
