Under the leadership of Francis Scholten in the Middle East, Losberger De Boer has worked on a number of projects of national importance over the last 12 months to claim a spot in Construction Week’s ranking of the Middle East’s 100 most influential construction leaders of 2020.

Losberger De Boer – which specialises in bespoke temporary structures, modular buildings, containers and room modules, industrial buildings, and temporary warehouses, among other semi-permanent build options – delivered the build contract for Riyadh’s second electric grand prix in November 2019.

The firm handled the project management and delivery of 6,300m2 of indoor event space and 7,350m2 of outdoor space, comprising integrated hospitality and viewing facilities and a 210-metre pit lane building.

Most notably, the firm was associated in Saudi Arabia’s launch of the Qiddiya project by delivering an integrated complex of 15 semi-permanent buildings, including the Panorama Dome – the only one of its kind in the kingdom.

To deliver the project within 60 days, the Losberger De Boer team worked 9,360 hours over 36 days. The structures would have taken up to two years to erect using traditional, non-modular, permanent builds.
