PERI Formwork Systems were chosen for the project due to their versatility, speed of construction and ability for reuse throughout the project. PERI Australia provided the formwork design for all the major formwork systems required on the project. With the varying formwork systems in use on the project, we required easy access to PERI service personnel for quick resolution to problems, to allow the project to maintain its demanding construction schedule.
