VIP hub built for Saudi Arabia's King Abdul Aziz Falconry Festival
Losberger De Boer completes building featuring VIP-style interiors in 17 days for Malham event, which kicks off on 25 January
A temporary structure has been built using modular construction products for Saudi Arabia’s culturally significant King Abdul Aziz Falconry Festival, to be held from 25 January to 3 February in Malham, a town north of Riyadh.
Losberger De Boer’s building features “high-quality VIP interior fit-out”, the firm said in a statement. The structure comprises 1,800m2 of interior space, which was developed using the firm’s Palas Double Decker product.
The team took 17 days to complete the project, with its contract win following a deal it won six months ago to develop a similar temporary building for the world’s largest camel festival in Taif. According to the firm, the Guinness World Records-certified Crown Prince Camel Festival’s 30x25m structure took eight days to build.
Commenting on the project, managing director of Losberger De Boer Middle East, Jim Muldoon, said: “[Our work is] about providing an unrivalled visitor experience for guests and building users, and our teams work hard to ensure these high-quality structures are erected safely and in record quick time, while keeping disruption to surrounding businesses or residents to a minimum.”
Losberger De Boer states it works on 700 projects around the world each year. Its projects in Saudi Arabia include the temporary pit lane structure for December 2018’s electric Grand Prix in Riyadh; 15 buildings for the Public Investment Fund-backed gigaproject Qiddiya; and Bay X, the Middle East’s largest temporary exhibition hall, at King Abdullah Economic City.
