Dubai Frame, United Arab Emirates

Project data

Location: Dubai, United Arab Emirates

  • Extraordinary landmark structure in the form of a 155 m high and 93 m wide picture frame
  • Complex, slender shapes of the towers with angular geometries
  • 75 m wide, self-supporting steel bridge construction connecting both towers


  • Complex shape of the “rising profile of the frame” with trapezoidal-shaped, extremely slender ground plan
  • Up to 10 m storey heights with angular geometries and confined space
  • High loads and massive dimensions in the transition areas between the towers and skybridge
  • Low dimensional tolerances

With PERI, we have already realized numerous projects and know the high-end solutions as well as the high standard of service. For this project, the complexity of the building´s structure was initially easy to underestimate but we were always supported on-site whenever needed. In the end, we could climb in 3½-day cycles thus saving a total of 30 days construction time.

PERI solution

  • Optimized project-specific climbing formwork solution
  • Three different ACS self-climbing versions with VARIO Girder Wall Formwork and TRIO Panel Formwork
  • Combination of elevated and suspended platforms
  • Integrated hydraulic cylinders, each with 100 kN lifting force, provided a crane-independent and safe climbing procedure
  • Customized formwork solution in the transition areas of the 2,100 t steel bridge construction
  • Fast and efficient on-site support provided by the PERI project team for handling the complex construction tasks
