We decided to use PERI RCS in this project for three reasons: safety for workers and for the traffic below, productivity to achieve one floor pour in 5 to 6 days and schedule improvement to avoid lost days due to wind or weather conditions.

PERI solution

  • flexible and adaptable climbing protection panel with mobile hydraulic climbing
  • Absolute World I (south): projecting fixed climbing shoe to compensate for the offset between the floors
  • Absolute World II (north): oblique climbing protection panel during constant twisting
