PERI systems in use for construction of a new airport in Istanbul

Istanbul Airport, Turkey

Istanbul Airport can accommodate around 90 million passengers per year but can easily be expanded in order to handle up to 200 million passengers annually. Two gigantic terminal buildings have been planned to deal with this enormous increase in passenger volume - the first terminal alone provides 1.44 million m² of effective area. Various PERI systems were used in the construction of the terminal building as well as for realising other structures.

Record-breaking bridge successfully completed with PERI systems

New Pumarejo Bridge, Barranquilla/Atlántico, Colombia

The new cable-stayed bridge over the Rio Magdalena is 2.3 km long. PERI engineers supported the challenging construction project by providing a customised formwork and scaffolding solution that has been designed for realising the simultaneous construction of the pylons, bridge piers along with the superstructure. The versatility of the formwork and scaffolding systems as well as the combination possibility with the VARIOKIT Engineering Construction Kit facilitated shortened assembly times also when dealing with complex geometries.

Extraordinary architectural project combines tradition and modernity

Indoor Tennis Centre, Kuwait University, Al-Shadadiya, Kuwait

Triangular recesses were taken into consideration for the thin reinforced concrete slab. With different heights of up to 11 m, these feature up to 120 circular openings with a diameter of 20 cm respectively. These form a fine net which allows the natural sunlight through the subsequently integrated glass blocks in the interior of the tennis centre.

Extraordinary architectural project combines tradition and modernity

Indoor Tennis Centre, Kuwait University, Al-Shadadiya, Kuwait

As part of the Kuwait University's Student Activities and Athletic Facilities Project (SAAF) in Al-Shadadiya, an indoor tennis centre is currently being realised. The training centre will provide athletes and students with an area of 7,100 square metres in order to carry out their daily training activities. In addition, the building also has three floors and space for around 2,000 spectators. Externally, the sports venue impresses with its dome-shaped roof in the style of traditional Islamic architecture. PERI planned and delivered a project-specific solution for facilitating the efficient execution of the architecturally sophisticated dome-shaped building.

Unconventional VARIOKIT solution for underground tanks

OTMS Tank Farm, Saldanha, South Africa

Covering the size of 24 football pitches, 17 m high and having sufficient capacity to store a total of 13.2 million barrels of oil: in Saldanha Bay, South Africa, a huge crude oil tank farm featuring twelve 110 m x 110 m tanks has been realised. The clients of WBHO Construction Ltd. integrated the team of PERI engineers into the project at a very early stage so that they could work together to develop the most appropriate solution for the gigantic task ahead already during the planning phase. The most cost-effective method for constructing the underground tanks proved to be a project-specific solution using the VARIOKIT steel composite carriage with additional specially designed structural steel members.

Project-specific solution for the longest cantilever bridge in Northern Macedonia

Kičevo Podvis Motorway Bridge, Northern Macedonia

On the first section through the mountainous region of western Northern Macedonia, the new motorway crosses a total of 14 viaducts. On a length of approx. 10 km, around 4,000,000 m³ of earth had to be excavated and a total of 150,000 t of concrete and 15,000 t of reinforcement were subsequently processed.

Project-specific solution for the longest cantilever bridge in Northern Macedonia

Kičevo Podvis Motorway Bridge, Northern Macedonia

Upon completion, a new, almost 65 km long motorway will connect the cities of Kičevo and Ohrid in the south west of the North Macedonian Republic. On the first section between Kičevo and Podvis, it was necessary to build a 381 m long viaduct. For this, PERI engineers developed a project-specific solution on the basis of the VARIOKIT balanced cantilever equipment. As a result, this allowed the construction team to maintain the very tight building schedule – in spite of the challenging terrain.
