Company Profile

  • Airport Shelters and Hangars

    Losberger De Boer shelters and hangars are manufactured of stretched tarpaulin with textile cover on composite steel structure (arches) with width of 13 m up to 74 m. Their main applications are airtight storage for vehicles, equipment, personnel and workshop facilities, maintenance hangars and aircraft hangars. All Shelters and hangars can be equipped with electrical opening system, with climate control and dehumidification, lighting, air conditioning and heating, sunscreens etc.

  • Quick Build Solutions

    A unique construction of 5 by 5 m modules with pitched roofs, used as one or two storey tent structure, offers unlimited clearspan widths and lengths and eave heights from 5 to 7m. A perfect multi-purpose structure for any kind of application within the airport industry: show rooms, storage, logistics, garages, re-locatable structures for airport terminals, stores, canteens, restaurants, lounges and more. Typically constructed from steel and tensioned PVC, these structures can be sized to suit your specific requirements with clear-span structures of 50m being installed in a matter of weeks and capable of remaining in operation for 10-20 years.

    For shorter term use (up to five years or so), Revolution / Delta™ offers the immediate advantages of being quick-to-build with minimal requirements for foundations. Either structure can be fitted with insulated cladding, roller shutters, lighting and heating to create a fully finished operational area at the point of handover. All projects are allocated a dedicated Project Manager and our Foremen and site crews work to clearly defined ISO 9001 and 14001 processes.

  • Business Continuity and Planned Redevelopment

    In the event of fire or other such crisis, you will probably have some sort of contingency plan in place. It may be a case of needing a short-term fix while your main building to be refurbished but equally, there may be requirements to create decant space to allow for planned redevelopment – creating temporary check-in desks or bag drop areas allow planned construction work to continue without risk to passengers or staff.

    Other uses for temporary structures can include welfare facilities – recent work at London Heathrow meant that Losberger De Boer provided a low-eaves, low-apex structure which could be erected on a lower deck of the adjacent multi-storey car park, freeing up valuable construction space.

  • Modular Multi-Deck Car Parks

    Adding capacity to frequently land-locked sites often means that the only space for expansion is above you. Car parking is a valuable cash generator for the airport whilst good parking is also a key feel good factor for passengers.

    A modular car park can be provided to 5 stories in height with a typical clear-span of 16m, allowing 5m for car space, 6m for the circulation road and 5m for the opposite car space.

    Where space is particularly tight, a vehicle lift can be provided – this might be appropriate in a car hire location where cars that are due to be collected could be available on the ground floor level whilst ‘spare’ vehicles are stored on upper decks and only available to rental staff. Car parks are formed from high-yield steel with composite steel and concrete decks creating a quick-to-build solution that is efficient to use and economical to procure.
