Project data

Location: George Town, Penang, Malaysia

While the construction teams worked on the first thirteen storeys with timber and boards, the DUO lightweight formwork was used for the shear walls of the upper storeys.


With horizontally and vertically arranged DUO panel extensions, up to 3.25m high units are mounted which are used 4 to 5 times per storey.

Ing. William Low
Project Manager

For the team it was the first time used system formwork.  Compared to the use of conventional formwork we were able to save around 50% of working time.  Especially the straightforward application is to be emphasised.  The whole team quickly understood the system and worked with little training.

PERI solution

The simple formwork logic very quickly ensures fast working with the innovative system.  Furthermore, the reduced cleaning effort results in time savings: as teh concrete does not stick to the formlining, It can be easily and quickly cleaned after every use.
