Global supplier of temporary structures, Losberger De Boer, is supporting organisations in the UAE and across the globe who are adapting to the new social distancing norms while working.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), social distancing, or physical distancing, is one of the most important tools in the fight against COVID-19, and businesses who require extra space to follow guidelines are searching for solutions that can be operational quickly – and safely.

Losberger De Boer offers a range of rapidly deployable structures that can be used for extra office space, additional meeting rooms, a temporary canteen or dining area, or even a temporary workshop or production space.

Commenting on how these solutions can assist organisations that are ready to get back to work, but are short on space, the regional sales director for Losberger De Boer Middle East, Waleed Khaled, said: “For many companies, it’s going to be very challenging to get employees back into the current infrastructure while ensuring there is enough space between them. From schools to offices and manufacturing facilities to sales centres, many organisations simply do not have enough extra space in the workplace to allow everyone to work while maintaining a two-metre distance between employees.”

Khaled added: “Businesses need to take measures to ensure social distancing guidelines are followed to prevent outbreaks. For example, desks may need to be moved further apart, aisles widened and dining facilities reconfigured, so they accommodate fewer people.

“This is even more complex for manufacturing facilities, where you have to factor in heavy machinery that cannot be easily moved. Many hospitality, retail and education sectors will also need to find ways to create additional space.

“In almost every sector, business owners are asking themselves how they can adapt to the new social distancing reality without it having an adverse effect on their revenue.”

With a comprehensive range of modular solutions, Losberger De Boer offers companies an array of options to temporarily create the additional space required to comply with physical distancing guidelines.

Both off-the-shelf and fully customisable structures are available, and construction can often begin within days or even hours of receiving an enquiry. Temporary and semi-permanent solutions can be operational within days in many cases, enabling businesses to maximise operations.

Sharing his insights on the practical benefits of the company’s temporary space solutions, Khaled explained: “For commercial activities, we can install additional, fully-equipped offices at current commercial buildings. We can also build larger, external meeting rooms so teams can meet face-to-face in a safe way.

“Workshops and production facilities can be expanded, and these solutions can easily be scaled up or down, offering companies maximum flexibility. For the aviation industry, we can increase the number of terminals or install additional hangars. In schools and universities, extra classrooms and lecture halls can be added.

“Looking further forward, our space solutions will assist recreation and event venues by providing more space so visitors can attend in the safest way possible. The modularity of our structures means we can provide almost any configuration at any size. No matter what businesses require, we can provide a solution that is going to meet that demand.”

Many of Losberger De Boer’s solutions are already being used around the world to help governments, educational institutions and schools, organisations and retail outlets create more space and ramp up operations.

Losberger De Boer has more than 80 structures in its range, and these can be fully customised to meet the requirements of many, if not all, projects. They are fully-scalable and can be adapted to meet the needs of a diverse range of sectors, including commercial, education, healthcare, storage and warehouses, manufacturing, and accommodation.
