A new rugged salt storage building has been constructed in the mountains of Maine
Rubb Buildings Systems of Sanford has completed work on a salt storage shed for the Town of Stow in June of 2017. The salt storage facility has a span of 39ft (12m) with a length of 67ft (20m), as well as an open gable end for access. It features a sidewall height of 14ft (4.2m). Being in the mountains of Maine, the structure was designed to meet 90psf snow load and 90mph wind load.
Stow town officials were particularly impressed with the relocatability of the Rubb NV structure as it sits on a quarry and will need to be moved in the future. Stow wanted the building before the fall of 2017 and Rubb delivered nearly 3 months early.
The building includes the concrete Rubb BulkblockTM foundation system, which serves the dual purpose of foundation and retaining wall. All the steel is hot-dip galvanized, the best anti-corrosion protection available. The Town of Stow opted to include the Rubb 20/20 Service Warranty with their purchase, a wise long-term preventative maintenance program.
