„With the prefabricated VARIO girder wall elements and the VARIO coupling for architectural concrete, we could fulfil the quality requirements in the best way possible!”

PERI solution

  • prefabricated VARIO GT 24 formwork elements as customised elements, covered by formlining of film-faced plywood, screwed and smoothed from the front
  • use of VKS coupling for architectural concrete to minimise tolerances in the area of the formwork joints
  • anchor pattern customised for project, partially effected as blind anchors.
  • matrices nailed to the plywood for a smooth imprint on the concrete, completed by irregularly arranged metal inserts
