Porta Nuova Garibaldi, Italy

Porta Nuova Garibaldi, Milan, Italy - Each of the two towers has three reinforced concrete cores which were constructed with help of two PERI ACS self-climbing variants.
Porta Nuova Garibaldi, Milan, Italy - The ACS platforms not only carried the core formwork but also served for positioning the pre-cast stairs by means of an integrated trolley system.
Porta Nuova Garibaldi, Milan, Italy - PERI engineers integrated an access solution in the ACS platforms on the basis of the PERI UP Rosett modular scaffold system.
Porta Nuova Garibaldi, Milan, Italy - The RCS climbing protection panel from PERI provided complete enclosure and safety against falling for the upper floors under construction whilst the integrated RCS Lift ensured crane-independent transport of materials.
Porta Nuova Garibaldi, Milan, Italy - The enclosure with the RCS climbing protection panel provided ideal protection for site personnel.
