M-8 Road Bridge, Szczecinek By-Pass, Poland

Project data

Location: Szczecinek, Poland

  • 160 m long road bridge with two lanes in both directions
  • Core element of a 12 km long by-pass circumventing the town of Szczecinek as part of the S-11 highway expansion project

Requirements

  • Challenging bridge construction in the wetlands area surrounding the Wilczy Canal
  • Difficult ground conditions demanded large span widths of 20.50 m and 25.50 m for the shoring – without any intermediate support
  • No suitable assembly area on the construction site

Customer's benefit

  • Cost-effective solution for the heavy-duty shoring due to the use of system components
  • Time and cost savings through an efficient overall concept for the construction of the bridge
  • Maintaining the tight construction schedule due to pre-assembly at PERI, on-time logistics and on-site continuous project support
  • Low storage costs due to reduced on-site material requirements
  • Efficient work operations due to low weight, high degree of modularity as well as simple and fast assembly with fitting pin connections
  • Crane time savings
  • Safe access to all working areas thanks to integrated PERI UP Stairs

Together with PERI engineers, we have developed the optimal solution for this demanding project. The usage of VRB Truss Girders made it possible to efficiently carry out work despite difficult ground conditions. Due to the delivery reliability of the required formwork and scaffolding material, we were able to keep to the tight schedule. Another advantage of the cooperation was the constant construction supervision by the PERI supervisors, who ensured the correct assembly and maintenance of the material as well as training on the construction site.

PERI solution

  • Project-specific shoring and formwork solution
  • Heavy-duty shoring for high loads and large spans consisting of VRB Truss Girders on VST Shoring Tower Frames
  • Superstructure formwork consisting of VARIOKIT formwork units with VARIO GT 24 Girder Wall Formwork system components
  • Overall solution comprised of technical processing, static calculations, supervisor and PERI project manager on site
  • Pre-assembly of truss girders at the PERI assembly hall
  • Accurate assembly operations and delivery of pre-assembled formwork units
