We received a perfect solution for the inclined tower right from the very first use. Delivery was on time and the formwork elements were accurate down to a millimetre. Thus, we are on schedule and are achieving a maximum of form precision and surface result.

Solución PERI

  • concreting cycle height set at 1.62 m so that anchoring could be effected outside the concreting area
  • use of large Fin-Ply Maxi formwork panels
  • pre-assembled 3D formwork units based on the VARIO GT 24 girder wall formwork system with tapered formwork panel edge
  • specially planned and produced box-outs for the inclined recesses of the windows
