LDB signing contract Tokyo 2020

Losberger De Boer will build more than 30,000 square meters of temporary accommodations at the Olympic Games in Tokyo next year. Due to the high risk of earthquakes and typhoons, the Tokyo metropolitan region is subject to extremely strict building regulations. The German company is one of the few suppliers of temporary space solutions worldwide that can actually ‘qualify’ for the Olympics.

Losberger De Boer has supplied temporary accommodations for the Olympic Games on several occasions. The company, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, will again be present at the summer games of 2020.   

Losberger De Boer CEO Arnout de Hair recently co-signed the contract for large scale temporary space solutions at twelve Olympic locations with Yuki Nomura, President of TSP Taiyo, one of the Games’ main contractors for event locations. Losberger De Boer's structures will be used to complement existing accommodations for athletics, gymnastics, football and beach volleyball, among others. Its structures will also serve as media centers, ticket scan facilities, changing rooms, offices and storage.

Under the leadership of Francis Scholten, Managing Director International Events, Losberger De Boer will begin preparations for the construction of the first of approximately 450 temporary space solutions for the Olympics early 2020.

Francis Scholten: "We have extensive experience with events of this scale and assignments of this complexity. Obtaining this contract underlines the success of our strategic focus on quality, innovation and the best possible customer experience. We are proud to once again have a strong presence at the world's largest sports event."
