As we of course expected, we were able to achieve an excellent concrete result with the PERI formwork solution. We have been working with PERI for 20 years now and it has always served us well.

PERI solution

  • VARIO GT 24 girder wall formwork with a special panel format screwed at the back
  • VARIO GT 24 girder wall formwork elements with 190 cm x 90 cm formwork panel and optically required six tie points per panel, partly as blind plug
  • utilisation of the fair-faced concrete coupling to reduce the joint off-set
