I am extremely satisfied with the applied systems and the technical support. We are able to excellently handle the construction project thanks to the technical possibilities of the formwork and scaffolding systems as well as the good cooperation with PERI. Also the high demands of the inspecting structural engineer have always been met. And on top of this, despite the very extraordinary architecture, we are very well on schedule.
