Marie-Elisabeth-Lüders-Haus of the German Parliament, Berlin, Germany

Project data

Location: Berlin, Germany

Refurbishment work on the Marie-Elisabeth-Lüders-Haus, part of the impressive ensemble of buildings in the Berlin government district along the bank of the river Spree


  • Scaffolding of exposed roof trusses for refurbishment work at a height of almost 30 m during ongoing operation
  • Limited permissible support possibilities and loads as well as impeded accessibility for mobile crane

Customer's benefit

  • The high load-bearing capacity of the LGS lattice girder system allows for huge spans
  • The low tare weight of the scaffolding structure due to light-weight PERI UP and LGS system components reduces the support loads on the existing building
  • The maneuverability of the suspended scaffolds on a trolley allows for a final positioning without a mobile crane, and thus makes the implementation of the refurbishment possible
  • Systematic assembly without time-consuming coupling work accelerates the erection and dismantling speed and increases safety
  • Using standardized, rentable system components in combination with own material of the scaffolder allows for an optimally adjusted but still cost-efficient overall solution

Thanks to the flexibility of the LGS lattice girder system as girders for wide spans and the PERI UP Flex modular scaffolding system we were able to achieve fast erection and dismantling times, which were very important for this refurbishment project.

PERI solution

  • Customized solution based on systems: Movable LGS lattice girders of the PERI UP scaffolding system with suspended scaffolds attached to them
  • 24-m long and 2.50-m wide scaffolding units were pre-assembled on the ground, lifted onto the roof and manually moved to the inside
