PERI Formwork Systems, Inc., to Showcase Bridge Construction Solutions at ASBI Webinar

Feb 15, 2024

LAX People Mover Project to Be Featured During Feb. 28 Presentation

ELKRIDGE, MD (February 15, 2024) PERI Formwork Systems, Inc., one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of formwork and scaffolding systems for today’s construction environment, will showcase its innovate formwork solutions in bridge construction by offering a webinar through the American Segmental Bridge Institute (ASBI) this month. Titled “Cast in Place Segmental Success at LAX with Form Travelers,” the presentation is scheduled for February 28, 2024, at 1:00 p.m. (ET).

During this session, PERI will highlight the innovative, state-of-the art solutions and cutting-edge technologies that are driving the future of bridge construction. Attendees will receive an overview of the Los Angeles International Airport Automated People Mover (APM), a 2.25-mile-long addition to the airport aimed at relieving congestion for people traveling to and from the third-busiest airport in the world. The LAX APM presented a variety of complex project conditions, including the need to construct the people mover over existing, operating highways. PERI employed a cast-in-place segmental bridge construction method utilizing formwork travelers, making the LAX APM the first project where PERI employed this system in the United States.

“This course will showcase how balanced cantilever carriages and formwork function, especially with the use of our VARIOKIT Balanced Cantilever Carriage System,” said Nabil Bouabid at PERI USA. “With the use of this system, it allowed the customer to build a cost-effective bridge with minimal disturbance to the busy LAX traffic during construction.”

PERI USA presenters include Nabil Bouabid, head of strategic projects; and Pawel Okolowicz, project manager.
