“It wasn’t just the complexity of the individual formwork elements that was demanding; the shape of the building also required a lot of thought. Due to the top of the building projecting over the bottom in many areas, we couldn’t remove a lot of the lower formwork elements until the top sections of the walls were poured, and in some instances, until the main roof beams had been installed. At the height of construction, we were fabricating 1000 m2 of bespoke shutters a month. It’s an extraordinary building and I’m excited to revisit the site after such a long time,” says Martin Richardson, Estimating Manager at PERI UK.
The celebratory event to mark 5 years of V&A Dundee will take place on Saturday 16 September. On the day, visitors can expect free entry to the museum’s Tartan exhibition, live music performances, food stalls and more.
