The safety and fastness of the PERI systems have really impressed me, because despite the difficult structure of the building, we were able to complete one floor height every five days, in a regular cycle. I don’t think there is any other system that would have made a similarly high output possible!

PERI solution

  • self-climbing solution with ACS for core and facade
  • combination of the ACS variations ACS R, ACS G and ACS P for the core
  • ACS R and VARIO with adjustment to the different radii and changes in wall thicknesses
  • positioning of the anchoring between the unevenly spread openings
  • co-climbing of the placing boom
  • enclosure with safety nets
  • subsequent wall also self-climbing
