Deputy Project Director of Vinaconex Co.

This is the first time we use PERI formwork, and we think that the simplicity of the system allowed for the fast, easy erection. According to that, it helped to provide a safe construction solution, shorten the construction cycle and also reduce the labor cost at site.
The installation of the system was so typical that it could be flexible to many construction types, and specially fits to the construction with the large height and many using times required. 

PERI solution

  • Efficient and cost-effective formwork concept with the climbing formwork CB and VARIO GT24 for the casting height up to 4 m per time
