Hamburg/Winsen (Aller)/Hannover, 17. September 2021. Cureus GmbH as the residence’s owner and Lavendio as its future operator joined forces to present their under-construction new senior residence in Hannover-Ricklingen (Göttinger Chaussee 275, 30459 Hannover) in more detail at a topping-out ceremony. Guests were invited to join an initial viewing of the rooms and communal facilities in the building on Wednesday, 15 September 2021. The ceremony was well attended, with guests including craftsmen, neighbours, project stakeholders and church representatives, who were also joined by local politicians and members of the local community. Catering was provided and the guests expressed a great deal of interest in the new Lavendio Senior Residence Hannover-Ricklingen and the nursing places it will provide from next year.

“Due to the pandemic, we had to postpone our topping-out ceremony slightly. Nevertheless, it was important for us to provide information about the property and its new care places and, of course, to thank everyone who has been involved in construction for their outstanding work so far. There was no way we were going to simply skip the ceremony”, says Kay Grünewald, Project Manager at Cureus. The company is developing the new senior residence and will integrate it into its real estate portfolio upon completion. “I’m happy to report that neither conditions around the construction site, nor the coronavirus or material bottlenecks, were able to slow down our team. We will complete the residence by the end of February 2022, ready to hand it over to our professional operating partner Lavendio exactly as planned”, adds Grünewald.

“We are also delighted that our new residence will be completed on time and ready to open as planned”, says Elvira Schulze, Managing Director of Lavendio Seniorenresidenzen. “We will be operating the residence in tune with our ‘open house’ concept, with a hotel-style ambience, where neighbours are also warmly welcome and where our main focus is on providing personalised care to residents and creating a pleasant working environment for our employees. The modern building, plus our wide range of services, and varied park and garden will all play their part”.

Information about the new Lavendio Seniorenresidenz Hannover-Ricklingen is available via email. Please contact kontakt@lavendio-pflege.de. Prospective residents and potential employees are also welcome to contact Lavendio via the same email address. The new residence will create approx. 100 new and secure long-term jobs.

Modern senior residence with restaurant, laundry, hair salon and expansive garden

The property is being designed and built to KfW 40 energy-efficiency standards and will feature a partial basement, two full stories and a recessed top floor. Sections of the flat roof will be greened and heating will be provided by an environmentally friendly combined heat and power unit (CHP), which will also generate electricity for the residence. The modern, rectilinear facade will be an architectural eye-catcher and its colour scheme will blend harmoniously with the surrounding buildings.

Each of the 131 single rooms is planned to the highest, modern standards and will have its own bathroom and 52 of the rooms are also wheelchair-accessible. Residents will have the option of bringing their own furniture and accessories if they wish. The Lavendio Seniorenresidenz Hannover-Ricklingen will have a gross floor area of approx. 5,900 square metres. In addition to the living areas with kitchenettes and lounges on each floor, the residence will also feature a restaurant for residents, relatives, neighbours and members of the local community that serves freshly prepared meals, an in-house laundry, a hair salon and therapy rooms.

The spacious, park-like landscaped outdoor facilities will be available to all residents for exercise, relaxation and socialising. The grounds are designed with seating, a boules court, children’s play areas and raised beds, ensuring that all generations can get involved in a spot of community gardening.

The new senior residence is located directly on the Ihme River, just a few minutes’ walk from local shops, doctors and social services. With the bus stop on site and the nearby subway connection, Hanover’s city centre is only moments away. The residence will also have 21 car and nine bicycle parking spaces on the grounds, guaranteeing excellent accessibility for both visitors and care staff.

The senior residence is designed and built in accordance with the Cureus standard for system care homes. This standard is based on exacting and uniform quality standards and is oriented to the needs of all stakeholders, including care home operators and residents. Care homes built to the Cureus standard are optimised in all respects. This concerns, for example, the size and arrangement of rooms to optimize space and walkways. Cureus care homes are also designed and equipped for maximum utility: interior corridors benefit from as much daylight as possible, every room has floor-to-ceiling windows that provide attractive views of the surrounding area, and the modern bathrooms and window fronts follow the same standardised system approach. Each complex’s architecture and facade incorporate individual touches and are constructed to the highest quality standards, integrating seamlessly into their surroundings. Th Cureus system approach also prioritises sustainability, both in terms of a care home’s long-term economic viability and its impact on the environment. All Cureus care homes are, for example, constructed in accordance with the KfW 40 energy-efficiency standard, while the bulk procurement of floor coverings or elevator systems, for example, ensures cost synergies and long-term maintenance contracts covering several properties also reduce costs for care home operators. The constant review and optimisation of the Cureus system care home standard guarantees the construction of care homes that truly meet demand.
