    The 85 m high and 485 m long Filstal Bridge brings together all the challenges of bridge construction: a sophisticated construction method with slender superstructures and high bridge piers that widen in a Y-shape at the crown, high architectural concrete requirements and a narrow time window to meet the completion deadline.
    The cantilevered parapets on the west bridge were constructed in 24-m-sections using a total of four VARIOKIT Cantilevered Parapet Carriages.
    PERI engineers assisted with the construction of the piers, superstructure and tunnel portals using their solution expertise and modular, coordinated formwork and scaffolding systems.

    PERI patented the guardrail in advance as early as 1996; the principle of integrated safety is still an essential component of the PERI UP Scaffolding Kit today. This is also shown, for example, by the integrated lift lock of the decks without additional components.
    Visitors to the PERI exhibition hall can look forward to realistic exhibits – including a segment of the PERI UP weather protection roof.
    Working platforms and access solutions from the combination of PERI UP and VARIOKIT can easily be integrated into existing structures and various PERI systems. The scaffolding manufacturer will be demonstrating how this works at bauma.

    During the construction of the new faculty at the Mohammed VI Polytechnic University in Morocco, an optimally coordinated PERI formwork and scaffolding solution allowed construction to be completed within a nine-month period, while maintaining high safety standards.
    With the help of ALPHADECK Slab Formwork, it proved possible to form around 120,000 m2 of slab in just nine months.
    The low weight of the ALPHADECK panels and the possibility of early striking using the drophead system reduced the material quantities required on site and minimised the time required for work processes.

    The principle of the innovative SKYMAX formwork solution is based on compatible components made of various materials. The result of this is a construction kit that paves the way for flexible solutions that will fulfil specific project requirements.
    Working with the SKYMAX system is remarkably simple due to the low number of different components. The system of combining the panels and heads is self-explanatory.
    The panel slab formwork can be installed safely and efficiently from the level below. The slab panels are slipped into the head from the installation surface below and pivoted upwards.

    On the first section through the mountainous region of western Northern Macedonia, the new motorway crosses a total of 14 viaducts. On a length of approx. 10 km, around 4,000,000 m³ of earth had to be excavated and a total of 150,000 t of concrete and 15,000 t of reinforcement were subsequently processed.
    The left, right and centre sections of the bridge superstructure were sub-divided into 64 concreting sections and simultaneously realised using a total of four VBC Balanced Cantilever Carriages.
    With the balanced cantilever method, the superstructure is symmetrically realised on both sides in the form of a balance beam - starting from the rigidly connected pier.

    Project-specific solution for the longest cantilever bridge in Northern Macedonia

    Upon completion, a new, almost 65 km long motorway will connect the cities of Kičevo and Ohrid in the south west of the North Macedonian Republic. On the first section between Kičevo and Podvis, it was necessary to build a 381 m long viaduct. For this, PERI engineers developed a project-specific solution on the basis of the VARIOKIT balanced cantilever equipment. As a result, this allowed the construction team to maintain the very tight building schedule – in spite of the challenging terrain.

    With the help of specially assembled framework-type tables comprised of parts from the VARIOKIT Engineering Construction Kit, it was always possible to realise the range of balcony cantilevers as well as accommodating the high loads from the parapet prefabricated elements in the same system.
