Congratulations to all participants for the outstanding performance.
For the 10th time, PERI is organizing a construction exercise that is targeted at all educational institutions that offer construction-related courses. This exercise covers many different aspects of the construction business. The goal is to deepen the knowledge of these topics using hands-on tasks especially in concrete estimating and formwork technology.
The use of PERI CAD or ELPOS will be part of the exercise.
Entries that comply with the rules will compete for the award of the PERI - Prize.
The total prize fund is more than € 20.000!
The jury will be comprised of renowned construction specialists. The contributors of the five best studies will be invited to the final qualification that takes place in Weissenhorn, Germany in November 2015. The jury will then decide on the final placings based on the presentations done by the students. The 3-day event will also entail an organized evening program for all participants.
The exercise can be done in groups up to 5 people. The submissions, to be completed in English or German, are limited to 100 pages (including plans and layouts). Submitted entries will not be returend as they become the property of PERI. PERI receives the publication rights by mentioning the name of the author.
Last date of entry is 31 July 2015 (date of postmark).
The judges decision is final.
Here you will find all information about our construction exercise, also available for download.

Are the Calculation costs valid for forming and stripping?
Formwork is divided into forming and stripping on a ratio of 2:1. Example: Calculation costs worth: 0.9 h/sqm Forming: 0.6 h/sqm Stripping: 0.3 h/sqm
Is a separate registration required for the competition or is submission of the project sufficient?
If you have handed in your solution along with the completed form by the given deadline, you are automatically registered.
Because there is no information about the ground class, can I to assume that we meet with respected requirements?
Yes, you may assume that the regulations have been met, but you will have to shortly summarize the regulations. Please, highlight the regulations clearly.
What can I do, if the task is not complete?
Please read the task again first. If you don´t find the values there, please have a closer look in the other documentation (brochures etc.). If you cannot find a solution there, you may do an assumption that you should explain and, if possible, give the source of your information. Please mark your assumptions clearly.
The shuttering of the walls or slabs is not as requested. What needs to be done?
Double check the layout of the floor plan if you have major problems. If you have minor problems, like missing panels add panels manually.
Remark regarding the layout of the floor plan:
Please, practice the use of the program before laying out the floor plan of the construction exercise.
