Musée Würth, France

Musée Würth, Erstein, France - With the flexible VARIO GT 24 wall formwork system, the requirements regarding the formlining joint arrangement as well as the requested execution and positioning of the tie points could easily be fulfilled.
Musée Würth, Erstein, France - For the realization of the Würth Art Museum, up to 14 m high walls in architectural concrete quality were constructed using VARIO GT 24 girder wall formwork.
Musée Würth, Erstein, France - The use of SVB self-compacting concrete and the large concreting heights made it necessary to configure the VARIP GT 24 wall formwork system to handle a concrete pressure of 120 kN/m².

We have been working with PERI formwork for 15 years now and have always achieved good fair-faced concrete results. The systems are easy to understand, and they work and they fit. What is more, when we have specific questions, PERI always offers us proficient answers and solutions immediately. Therefore, for these high walls, we could only imagine to do it with PERI VARIO. The result fully fulfils the ideas of the architect.
