New Construction of a Day Care Facility - Modular Construction for Elegance & Comfort in Care Facilities
The Franz Göhler Foundation is a public foundation under civil law and operates a facility with assisted living for people in need of care.
Now the day care in Hösbach was to be supplemented with a separate new building in modular construction. The new, single-storey, barrier-free modular building now offers 18 senior citizens a place to live and stay as a care facility.
Functional rooms for the day guests and the nursing staff are located on about 450 m². Sanitary facilities, washrooms and storage areas are located in the centre of the building, surrounded by an inner corridor that serves as a galery for those in need of care.
All recreation and quiet rooms are arranged on the outward areas of the modular building to ensure a supply of natural daylight. The arrangement of the window areas is based on the concept of a passive house in order to be able to energetically use the incidence of light from the south.
The modular building meets the criteria of a passive house according to the specifications of the Passive House Project Planning Package, certified by the Passive House Institute in Darmstadt.
Proof of sound insulation with sound insulation report, fire protection with fire alarm system, static calculation as well as testing of the airtightness of the modular building by means of a blower door test are to be taken into account.
The lighting concept as well as the safety concept of the entrances, escape routes, fire alarm system and the light call systems in all recreation and rest areas are adapted to the care of the residents.
This care facility in modular construction presents the multifaceted possibilities of modular construction, through the choice of high-quality technical equipment and the design concept adapted to the residents.
