In addition to the fast erection, PERI UP offers a high load-bearing capacity. Therefore it was also possible to work on the platforms with heavy material, a crane was not necessary. The scaffolding system was also so flexible that unforeseen adjustments due to inaccurate plans of the structure had no negative impact on the scaffolding solution and the construction sequence.
