Rubb has supplied two structures for RAF Akrotiri: a climate-controlled storage solution, and an additional storage facility.
The storage structure—a BVR measuring 20m x 30m, with a 5m leg—is clad with 150mm Thermohall® and equipped with a full containerised HVAC system to keep its supplies safe from the hot Cyprus sun. Easy access is granted by its 5m x 5m roller shutter door, and a bright working area is enabled by 500 lux LED lighting.
The additional storage facility stands at 8m x 10m with a 3m leg. Multiple access points are provided by two 3.5m x 3.5m roller shutter doors, allowing convenient entry for personnel. Full 300 lux LED lighting is fitted, ensuring full visibility at all hours. Both structures feature galvanized guttering.
RAF Akrotiri is a key strategic Permanent Joint Operating Base, providing support in the region, as well as acting as a forward mounting base for overseas operations in the Middle East, as well as fast jet training. The base’s Griffin helicopters also support Cyprus’s local authorities with search and rescue operations.
This latest project is part of the ongoing support that Rubb is proud to provide to the armed forces.
