Losberger De Boer eyes GCC temporary Covid vaccine hubs order

DUBAI, January 4, 2021

Losberger De Boer has delivered Germany’s first temporary large-scale centre for Covid-19 vaccination drive and is now looking for similar orders in the Middle East, said a top official. 
A key player in the region since 2000, Losberger De Boer has been delivering bespoke turnkey temporary structures for all kind of events and commercial usage.
The centre was designed and built by the temporary building specialist, who will deliver similar vaccination centres to additional locations in the coming days. 
The company has the blueprint ready for a short-term, mass roll-out in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and other GCC countries, remarked Waleed Khaled, Losberger De Boer Middle East’s sales director.
"The large-scale vaccination facility was designed by Losberger De Boer engineers, in close collaboration with healthcare professionals. The company indicates that it has a blueprint ready, which can be used to build a large number of vaccination centres in the Middle East in a matter of weeks. The plan is ready," stated Khaled. 
"This vaccination centre is designed to allow more people to be vaccinated safely for longer periods of time than at regular vaccination locations. The design also provides a good, safe workplace for the care workers who carry out the vaccinations," he added.
In order to prevent the large-scale vaccination campaign from overloading the regular healthcare institutions, the German municipality of Recklinghausen had commissioned temporary building specialist Losberger De Boer to design and set up a mass vaccination centre. 
Within two weeks, the company built a 1,900 sq m centre, where 2,000 people can be vaccinated each day. The building will be in use for six to twelve months and is one of the largest vaccination locations in the entire Nordrhein-Westfalen region, home to 18 million people. 
The new facility has been designed in such a way to allow a large flow of people to be vaccinated safely. It is equipped with a newly designed and innovative hygiene concept, which disinfects the air when the structure is not in use. This results in a completely sterile environment. The system also provides excellent ventilation.
The centre is designed to ensure a fast flow and sufficient distance between visitors as well as between visitors and medical professionals. In combination with the hygiene system, this results in an extremely low contamination risk.
Since the centre consists of modular building structures, it can be adapted to each location. "We can adjust the scale to suit the location or local conditions," stated Khaled, hinting that the company was ready for a further roll-out. 
"We have sufficient materials and manpower available to install vaccination centres on a large scale in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and other GCC countries,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
