We got the best solution from PERI. Safe and convenient levels are available for all of the work. The shuttering and striking procedures and the climbing work very well.

PERI lösning

  • self-climbing formwork with integrated placing boom for the concreting of the surrounding wall and the inner core walls
  • slab tables for two standard floors and one arched mezzanine floor on a projecting slab-edge with a safety rail acting as a working scaffold
