Mining facility structures

The design and planning flexibility, speed of construction and durable, cost effective operation of Rubb mining facility buildings provide our clients with a number of unique benefits and a major competitive edge.

Our steel framed PVC membrane clad structures offer the ideal solution for companies operating in the mining and exploration sector. Applications include vehicle storage and equipment maintenance workshops, bulk storage warehouses for environmentally sensitive materials, explosives and mineral processing facilities and a wide range of custom structures.

Rubb structures offer protection for valuable mineral commodities such as copper, zinc and lead while in storage on site and at ports. They can be climate controlled by applying HVAC and dehumidification systems. They may also be used as cost effective solutions for the bulk storage of iron-ore and coal.

Frame supported membrane structures are available to protect oil and gas projects and activities from the elements. Shelters also offer cover for oil and gas rigs and platforms while under construction, protecting workers from wind and snow. They are simple to erect and can be relocated or packed away for later use. Rubb designs also offer our clients the ability to cost-effectively adapt the structures as operational needs change.
