MEP Middle East - - NEWS UPDATE -

In­ter­na­tional tem­po­rary struc­tures spe­cial­ists Los­berger De Boer has se­cured the tem­po­rary struc­ture build con­tract for the up­com­ing elec­tric Grand Prix set to make its de­but in Riyadh.

The Saudi Ara­bian cap­i­tal will host the open­ing round of sea­son five of the global race cal­en­dar in De­cem­ber 2018, which is ex­pected to at­tract in­ter­na­tional vis­i­tors to the city un­der the coun­try’s new ma­jor-event on­line visa scheme.

Los­berger De Boer will build the 190 me­tre-long pit lane build­ing to­gether with sec­ond floor hos­pi­tal­ity and view­ing fa­cil­i­ties. The build site lo­cated in Ad Diriyah, the his­toric cen­tre of the Saudi Ara­bian cap­i­tal, faces an ex­ist­ing pub­lic road that will be closed for qual­i­fiers and race day be­tween 12-15 De­cem­ber. Los­berger De Boer will be re­spon­si­ble for project man­ag­ing turnkey de­liv­ery of the en­tire pit lane struc­ture to sup­port this event within a tight 40-day build time­frame to­gether with rapid dis­man­tling im­me­di­ately fol­low­ing race day.

Paul Machin se­nior sales man­ager of Los­berger De Boer Mid­dle East said, “Func­tion­al­ity and de­liv­er­ing an op­ti­mal view­ing ex­pe­ri­ence are key con­cerns for the or­gan­iser, so in light of this we were pleased to be able to de­liver our Em­peror and Premier prod­ucts us­ing ISO 14001 en­vi­ron­men­tal­lyc­er­ti­fied pro­cesses. This en­sures the needs of the planet are care­fully bal­anced with de­liv­er­ing op­ti­mal race day per­for­mance, while pro­vid­ing an un­ri­valled vis­i­tor ex­pe­ri­ence for guests.

“Crit­i­cally, our team fol­lows a care­fully planned project man­age­ment process to en­sure tight build and dis­man­tling times are met. Since the race track is lo­cated in the cen­tre of a busy work­ing city, our team works hard to keep dis­rup­tion to lo­cal res­i­dents and busi­nesses to a min­i­mum - this is an area of ex­per­tise for Los­berger De Boer.”

Last year, Los­berger De Boer also built the Mid­dle East’s largest tem­po­rary ex­hi­bi­tion hall, Bay X, at King Ab­dul­lah Eco­nomic City in Saudi Ara­bia and also built the Baku City Race Cir­cuit event over­lay for a ma­jor in­ter­na­tional Grand Prix mo­tor sports racing event in Azer­bai­jan.
