Rubb Norway was tasked with designing a storage solution for Norwegian frozen food specialist Norrek.
With temperature control being key for this project, 50mm Thermohall® insulation was selected for the cladding to ensure a consistent ambient temperature for the goods. The final building measures in at 20m wide by 40m long, allowing plenty of space for Norrek’s operations. Easy access is provided by two 4m x 4.5m roller shutter doors to the side, and one 5m x 4.5m roller shutter door to the front gable.
Norrek specializes in supplying frozen berries, fruit, vegetables, mushrooms, and potato products. They are based in Helgeroa and Hegdal, close to Larvik. At their facility at Hegdal they prepare vegetables and potato products. Both vegetables and potatoes are washed before they are transported on conveyers to the production facility for further processing.
By moving the storage indoors, they can more easily preserve the raw materials and more efficiently separate the soil from the root food products. Moreover, they have given their employees a much-improved work environment with more light and comfort.
Caus Trodal Christensen, division manager for Norrek at Hegdal, contacted Øyvind Kristiansen (Key Account Manager at Rubb Norway) and started the process by applying for building permits and designing the Rubb building. Project manager Fredrik Holmdal then took over the project for Rubb. His good relationship with the customer resulted in the delivery of a Rubb building that satisfies all their needs.
Rubb’s sister company, Plamek AS, erected the building, finishing another well executed project for Rubb.
