Customer's benefit

  • The construction crew could concrete each section according to the planned schedule thanks to the flexible and user-friendly design.
  • Due to the high percentage of the rentable system components, the formwork solution is also very cost-effective which enables the site to stay within their budget.
Mr. Chan Kwong Thai
Project Manager

The high safety levels and speed of the PERI systems really impressed me.  Already after the first climbing phase, we knew that our decision to use PERI was spot on.  On such a large construction site, it is very important to work together with a competent formwork provider.  With PERI, we definitely had the right partner.

PERI solution

  • PERI engineers together with the site management designed a customised project solution to suite all geometric changes on the bais of our VARIOKIT system components and ST 100 shoring towers.
  • The client demanded a design solution whereby little space was available in those areas.
