Town of Liberty is Winter ready with new Rubb sand shed
Recently Rubb Building Systems was contracted by the Town of Liberty, Maine to furnish, deliver, and install an 60ft span x 100ft long x 13.1ft leg BVE structure to serve as the Town’s new sand shed.
The previous building used by the Town at their DOT facility had failed and needed to be replaced. Rubb’s engineering team worked with the Town’s concrete foundation supplier to design a building with a high storage (volume) capacity.
The structure sits atop a 9.8ft tall, poured concrete foundation, and stores 3,200 cubic yards of the salt and sand mixture. As this structure has a large 20ft wide x 24ft high opening in the front gable with no door, it is considered to be a partially enclosed structure and was designed as such.
Design loads are as follows: 105 mph 3-second gust wind, exposure category C, 60 psf ground snow load, and a 1 psf collateral load.
