Port of Philadelphia
When PhilaPort needed to expand dry storage capacity at the Tioga Marine Terminal, their positive experience with Rubb high-quality membrane structures over the past 20+ years encouraged them to utilize another. The initial planning for this project began in 2016, with procurement taking place in mid-2019. After careful coordination and cooperation, the project was completed on–time, in early 2020.
The BVE series Rubb building is 150’ wide by 666’ long with a sidewall height of 26.2’, providing nearly 100,000 sf of premium storage space. The Rubb building is comprised of a hot-dip galvanized steel frame covered with a single–layer architectural PVC membrane. The project’s general contractor outfitted the structure with multiple bays of loading dock equipment, access doors, complete lighting, and related systems. A Rubb factory technician aided in the construction of the Rubb building.
Rubb has been serving the US marketplace for 37 years since 1983 from its manufacturing facility in Sanford, Maine. The company was originally founded in Norway in the mid 1960s and has operations around the world.
