Premiere for the VARIOKIT Heavy-Duty Truss Girder in Poland

M-8 road bridge, Szczecinek by-pass, Poland

For realising a demanding bridge construction in the wetland area near Szczecinek, PERI engineers planned a project-specific shoring and formwork solution. Heavy-Duty Truss Girders and Heavy-Duty Truss Towers based on the VARIOKIT Engineering Construction Kit safely transferred the high loads via large spans and into the ground; VARIOKIT formwork units along with the customised formwork solution were supported on this. The first use of the truss girders convinced the construction team due to the low weight and fast assembly. Factors that facilitated both time and cost savings during the execution.
