Maakri-Kvartal Business Complex, Estonia

A total of seven buildings form the new Maakri Quarter in the heart of Tallinn: a very striking multi-storey structure over 100 m high while surrounding historical buildings are being extensively renovated.
For the new landmark of the district, PERI engineers developed a climbing formwork solution on the basis of the RCS Rail Climbing System. The continuous guidance of the units on the building ensured safe climbing procedures even during strong winds.
The RCS Rail Climbing System was also used in Tallinn as a climbing protection panel and thus provided a safe, gap-free enclosure for the floors of the shell construction.
Three new buildings are seamlessly integrated into the existing architectural monuments and other more modern high-rise towers.
The largest office buildings in the centre of Tallinn are situated right next to the Maakri Quarter: Tornimäe Business Center, City Plaza, European Union Building, the SEB Building, Rävala Business Center, Novira Plaza and two leading hotels - Radisson Blu Sky and Swissôtel.

TIME IS MONEY – is the central point of the benefits when building with PERI. We achieve maximum speed. PERI was chosen as a formwork supplier due to our previous long-term positive and successful cooperation. They are fast, professional and helpful which makes them a reliable partner. Hydraulically movable wind protection panels and platforms ensure an advantage in all weather conditions and at any given time. A crane can very often not be used due to very strong winds but despite this, we are able to move the wind protection panel together with the wall formwork to the next cycle. Using MAXIMO Wall Formwork enables us to save on one worker. In case of SKYDECK, incorrect usage of the anchoring is ruled out. Additional props are not necessary and the prop spacing is large enough in order to transport equipment on the floor. Last but not least PERI stands out through its technical expertise. Technological support, know-how and quick answers are what PERI always provides.
