PERI Formwork Systems, Inc., to Showcase Innovative Bridge Formwork Solutions at 2022 ASBI Annual Convention
Industry Event to be Held in Austin, TX, from October 30 to November 2
ELKRIDGE, MD – PERI Formwork Systems, Inc., one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of formwork and scaffolding systems for today’s construction environment, will showcase its innovative formwork solutions for bridge construction when it serves as an exhibitor at the upcoming American Segmental Bridge Institute (ASBI) 2022 Convention (October 30-November 2, 2022 in Austin, TX). The annual event brings together members of the ASBI, an organization focused on advancing the quality and use of concrete segmental bridges.
“The federal government’s historic investment in infrastructure places the rehabilitation and construction of bridges at the forefront. It is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to make a discernible difference in communities large and small,” said Strydom Groenewald, CEO of PERI USA. “At PERI, our product innovations put us at the center of that conversation. We look forward to our interactions at ASBI and to educating members on what we can offer them as they plan their next project.”
Among the solutions PERI will highlight as an exhibitor is the recently launched VARIOKIT Pier System (VPS), which is poised to set a new industry standard for bridge construction. PERI VPS bridges the gap between worker safety and efficiency to provide a versatile, rentable, and high-performing formwork system for the smart construction of bridge columns and caps. It fuses the advantages of dancefloor systems and self-spanning systems to deliver the highest safety level with standardized platform solutions and the elimination of hazards on site.
PERI will also showcase its VARIOKIT Balanced Cantilever Carriage (VBC) system. PERI VBC can be adapted flexibly to accommodate a wide range of bridge cross-sections and geometries. The formwork solution can reduce construction time thanks to high load-bearing capacity and integrated hydraulics, and its compatibility with PERI UP modular scaffolding delivers safe access to workers on the jobsite.
In addition, PERI’s recent work on the Los Angeles International Airport Automated People Mover will be featured in a convention presentation titled “Opportunities for CIP Segmental Construction with Form Travelers,” scheduled for Tuesday, November 1.
The PERI team will be exhibiting at booth #307.
