"The combination of multiple #PERI#formwork and #scaffolding systems together with efficient #engineering support was the key factor in ensuring that the #concrete#construction challenges we faced could be mastered. In particular, the on-time deliveries of the pre-assembled formwork units enabled us to shape Rio’s newest landmark." Edilson Costa (Site Manager) about the cooperation with PERI at the construction of the #museumoftomorrow in Brazil.
Museum of Tomorrow – The futuristic building in Rio de Janeiro!
The futuristic #museumoftomorrow in Rio de Janeiro is one of the technically spectacular buildings of the famous architect #santiagocalatrava , which protrudes for 300 meters into the ocean. The façade and the roof consist of movable parts which are responsible for the air-conditioning. #PERI planned and supplied more than 3,500 customized special #formwork elements (28,000 m²) based on system formwork within only 13 months for the implementation of the extraordinary building. Supported by PERI UP shoring and work #scaffolding as well as a #VARIOKIT formwork unit, it was possible to assemble the customized elements on site into the overall 3-D formwork.
The museum opened at the end of 2015 and since then has been dealing with the questions: Where do we come from? Who are we? Where are we? What is going to happen with us? How do we want to live?
