PERI Safety Concept

By viewing the construction process as a whole, losing sight of the outcome is not an issue. In this way, PERI is on hand to assist in an advisory capacity with their extensive expertise from an early stage when it comes to supporting architects and planners. Drawing on their international expertise, experienced PERI engineers can, on request, provide support over the course of an entire construction project and carry out structural preliminary planning work and feasibility studies. All of this contributes to the desired outcome – that taking this approach will mean that the objective can be achieved in a safe and efficient manner.

Four pillars for your success

System safety by means of intelligent design

PERI addresses the topic of safety as early as the development and design phases for its formwork and scaffolding systems. The safety technology used in PERI products is often built into the system itself. Numerous smart features of the  PERI UP Scaffolding System can improve both the degree of safety and the economic efficiency for a wide range of scaffolding applications - from facade scaffolding to shoring and reinforcement scaffolding on the construction site. Safety is a particularly important area of focus when working at great heights. The Ulm Minster restoration project exemplifies this perfectly. Extensive PERI Scaffolding Solutions were installed on the highest church steeple in the world in order to carry out the renovation work on the vaulted ceiling, the choir stalls, the main tower and the 86-m-high choir tower.

Application safety and reliability thanks to safeguarded assembly and working

In addition to the high quality of the systems and their innovative technology, the ability to use the systems safely is of significant importance. Put it this way: the simpler and more self-explanatory the assembly process and the subsequent application, the higher the degree of safety. For example, the fact that the PERI UP Scaffolding System could be adapted flexibly and easily to the given weight and geometry in 25-cm increments was of paramount importance when installing the scaffolding on the main tower of Ulm Minster. The grid allowed for an uninterrupted transition from the staircase to the scaffold bay, thereby creating trip-free working levels. This resulted in tiered working levels and access options that allowed work to be carried out safely on both the choir vault and the choir stalls at the same time. The yellow toe boards along the landings also prevented small objects from falling to the ground. The assembly process can also be carried out quickly and easily due to a low number of system components. If necessary, certain systems can even be delivered to the construction site in a fully assembled state, increasing the degree of application safety and reliability further still.

Process reliability due to optimal support at all phases of the project

Process reliability also plays a decisive role in ensuring that the construction process is straightforward. Due to the fact that its formwork and scaffold systems can be optimally combined, PERI is able to offer its clients a decisive advantage. Considering the fact that the PERI portfolio, with its various consultancy, engineering and project-related services, offers solutions for all phases of the project, PERI is able to provide a comprehensive support package whenever required.

By using Building Information Modelling (BIM), we can offer you real added value. BIM is a forward-thinking approach that can be used to plan and control all construction processes. All of the trades that are involved in the construction process work on the basis of a digital 3D model that has been developed with the aid of CAD software. In this way, even individual alterations made during the construction project are immediately visible to all parties. On the one hand, this increases the transparency of the project, but also improves the level of efficiency and ultimately leads to a greater degree of planning and cost reliability. Any planning errors and safety risks can be identified at an early stage and rectified in good time.
