Customer's benefit

  • acceleration of the working processes as a result of the short retrofitting phases for the scaffolding system
  • continual modification possibilities due to the fact that the flooring could be subsequently removed and re-installed
  • high level of safety due to working platforms and access ways without any gaps
  • time-saving due to safe working processes

The PERI scaffold solution adapted perfectly to the complex geometry and construction progress. As a result of this, all operational steps could be safely carried out, which also led to substantial time savings.

PERI solution

  • PERI UP birdcage scaffolds with continuous modification to geometry and working processes
  • cantilevers with UBK node diagonals and UCB brackets between steel ribs for access from all sides
