In addition to the fast erection, PERI UP offers a high load-bearing capacity. Therefore it was also possible to work on the platforms with heavy material, a crane was not necessary. The scaffolding system was also so flexible that unforeseen adjustments due to inaccurate plans of the structure had no negative impact on the scaffolding solution and the construction sequence.

PERI solution

  • base scaffolding with PERI UP T 72 frame scaffold with intermediate support on CB console brackets
  • stair-like extension with inner brackets
  • combined with PERI UP Rosett modular scaffolding for maximum adaptation to the statue
