The National Science Foundation called Rubb Building Systems 3 years ago with a question: Could Rubb’s fabric tension buildings withstand the snow and wind on Greenland’s ice shelf? The answer was yes.


“Our buildings work perfectly in rugged, cold conditions,” says Chuck Auger, Marketing Manager at Rubb Building Systems. The Norwegian-based company has offices in Norway, the United Kingdom, and Sanford, Maine. Their fabric tension buildings are made from galvanized steel frames covered by a durable PVC coated fabric. The company is considered a world leader in the engineering and construction of tensioned fabric structures.


“We store stuff,” says Auger. Everything from tennis courts to planes, military fighters, cargo, sand and salt. You name it, we can store it in our buildings.”
