We made the right choice with PD8 shoring system, especially that we had a main requirement for fast construction techniques in order to save time. It is easy to assemble the system in one place, it helped our team on site understand its connections quickly and imporve productivity. PD8 offers a much easier way of changing in the shifts as the structure grows higher. It is one of the main features that allows us to manage and construct this massive structure today, especially being safe and reliable throughout the construction period. We thank PERI for providing us the technical support needed and for their long association with us.
