Customer's benefit

  • Fulfillment of all requirements and maintaining the tight construction schedule through on-site project support provided by PERI engineers
  • Short shuttering and moving times
  • Accelerated construction progress due to the provision of project-specific pre-assembled special formwork
  • Maximum cost security for the project management due to the pre-defined fixed prices for the customised special formwork
  • Considerable time savings in all shuttering and striking operations due to the one-sided MX tie technology
  • Moving of the QUATTRO Column Formwork as complete units using only one crane lift each time
  • Due to the use of external CB Climbing Platforms, no facade scaffolding was required for the shell construction

Senior Site Manager

I rate the PERI contribution very highly. All requirements were completely fulfilled and the tight construction schedule was also maintained. In addition to the fast shuttering and moving times with MAXIMO and SKYDECK, I would like to especially praise the on-site project support along with the flexible, operative and process-oriented cooperation with the PERI engineers.
