Project leader

We are extremely satisfied with the PERI systems and the efficient engineering – we were able to considerably accelerate the climbing cycles thanks to ACS. Despite the great height, we were able to work safely on the working platforms. Furthermore, we achieved excellent concrete surfaces, our customer is very satisfied.
