In my opinion, PERI UP is two thirds faster than common scaffolding systems. On the one hand, we are able to erect it fast and safely, and on the other hand, we achieve an efficient construction sequence due to the flexibility and versatility.

PERI solution

  • optimally harmonised formwork and scaffolding solution
  • outside work scaffold for safe shuttering, reinforcement and pouring of the 9.90 m high walls
  • shoring for protruding site-mixed concrete slabs and as temporary support of the FT beams
  • scaffolding staircase access to the work places
