An Olympian task
High-profi le projects require steely nerves and
expertise to pull off, but add extreme weather
conditions, tight schedules and a pandemic,
and the prospect becomes daunting.

t would have been a tall order for a less adept company.
After all, the job wasn't only extremely high-proile-
the Beijing Winter Olympics-it involved providing
and setting up more than 30 structures under extreme
conditions and on some less-than-ideal terrain, all
while adhering to strict COVID protocols. But as one of
the largest installers in Asia, Liri Modular Structure in
Zhuhai City, Guangdong Province, China, was more than
up to the task.
Liri Modular is the operating division of Liri
Architecture Technology Co. Ltd. A parent company
to Liri Modular, Liri Architecture is engaged in the
design, manufacture, sales and rental of aluminum PVC
clearspan tent structure systems, explains Lee Tian,
managing director. (Liri Modular makes the tents to be
installed in China and broader Asia. Liri Tent US has a
supply agreement with that company to exclusively sell
its products in the U.S.)
" We focus on meeting all kinds of temporary space
demand for sports, large exhibitions, festivals, disaster
relief, events, warehousing and glamping tents, " says
Tian. " We have rich experience in providing structures
for international sports events, such as the 16th Asian
Games, Shenzhen 26th Summer Universiade, IAAF
World Championships Beijing, the 2015 Baku European
Games and so on. "
The company was irst approached about providing
structures for the 24th Winter Olympic games in August
2021. Ultimately, a total area of 10,000 square meters
(or about 110,00 square feet) of structures was supplied
and installed over various sites. Among these were a
Double Decker 20-by-27.5-meter used as a media tent
and having a capacity of up to 400 people; a 20-by18-meter
news conference hall accommodating about
300 people; and a 15-by-30-meter lounge that could
hold 200. Additional tents were used for a variety
of purposes such as security, check-in, food service,
