Tallest structure to date

Published:  26 March, 2014

Rubb Buildings Ltd has worked with AJS Contracts Ltd to provide its tallest structure to date and the first biomass fuel processing and storage facility to energy giant E.ON UK.

The 31.5m span x 137.5m long building at Ironbridge Power Station, Shropshire, UK, has an apex height of 21m. The roof provides rigidity with minimal deflection, providing stability and support for a 200 ton roof-mounted conveyor system used for the dispersal of biomass fuel products. The structure features a roof pitch of 35 which was designed around the angle of repose of the biomass materials. The UK based Rubb team was readily available to provide advice, support, recommendations, site visits and ongoing solutions regarding the challenges that arose during the project. These included structure height, weight loadings, access and custom door designs. The company also met with AJS/E.ON requirements that all elements of the structure were to be designed and manufactured in the UK.
