Rubb AS has delivered a Thermohall® facility, custom designed for lumber production goods and operations ahead of the first snowfall in Norway.
Rubb Norway won the order for the 25m (82ft) span x 40m (131ft) long structure with 6m (19.7ft) high sidewalls and construction work started in October. Torpa Sag AS is a niche sawmill specializing in the production of timber frames, girders, columns and more. The company is also involved in the production of wood for restoration of old and listed buildings.
Rubb engaged in a number of discussions about solutions available for the customer and has delivered many customized features within this fabric structure. One specialist feature includes the free hanging roof section measuring 4m (13ft), which does not require external supporting columns. The building was erected by Hallmaker Byggservice on asphalt and it meets the high snow loads required in North Torpa.
Rubb met the client’s deadline for the facility to be ready before the snow arrived, finalising the fastening of the pvc-membrane to the asphalt just hours before the first snow in the valley.
Per Arne Jostad, at Torpa Sag AS, said: “Rubb Norway has delivered a building of excellent quality on time and all our expectations have been fulfilled. We now have a great facility for our lumber production, which will help increase our quality to our customers. Thank you Rubb.”
