The collaboration between Lend Lease Structures and PERI to develop a system which accommodated our comprehensive safety requirements was greatly appreciated. PERI has worked closely with us and their continued site service has been a valuable resource when called upon. The added benefit of hydraulics on the LPS system enabled us to free up crane time and helped us in achieving our tight programme.
