Hamburg/Winsen (Aller)/Alfter, 17. November 2022. Cureus, an integrated property company that specialises in developing and actively managing its own inpatient care home portfolio, and Libento as the future operator of Senior Residence Alfter yesterday invited to the topping-out ceremony. The approximately 45 guests featured planners, craftsmen, neighbours and representatives from politics, administration and the community, including Dr. Rolf Schumacher, Mayor of Alfter and Local Chairman Norbert Lehna. The traditional ceremony featured a topping-out wreath, speeches, and the hammering in of the final nail into the roof structure. The visitors enjoyed food and drink after the ceremony and were keen to find out more about the new senior residence on a walk around the construction site and through the shell of the building. The construction site is located in the currently emerging residential quarter Bahnhofstraße in 53347 Alfter and the general contractor is Zenz Massivhaus GmbH located in Cochem.

"Our project is progressing as planned," says Sebastian Warz, the responsible project manager at Cureus: "With the completion of the roof and the installation of the windows before winter, we can now also start the interior work regardless of the weather. In the context of this topping-out ceremony, we would like to express our traditional thanks to all those involved in the construction for their work so far. I am optimistic that we will be able to hand over to our proven, professional operating partner Libento in summer 2023."

"We, too, would like to thank the teams involved in the construction and are already very much looking forward to this new location, the future appearance of which can already be seen in the current state of construction," says Andrea Willigerod, Managing Director of Libento Seniorenresidenzen: "The focus for us is, of course, also on the location here in Alfter a functioning community of residents and employees, which will be characterised by sociability and familiar as well as regionally networked structures. Staff recruitment is already in full swing and the first residents have already expressed their interest."

About Libento Senior Residence Alfter

An ultra-modern care facility is being built on an area of 3,700 square metres, which will meet the increasing demand for care places in Alfter with contemporary forms of living once it is completed. The modern senior residence comprises 95 places for inpatient care, and eight places for short-term care; there will also be eight staff bedrooms on the premisses. The residence is constructed in accordance with the energetically optimised Effizienzhaus 40 standard of KfW, whereby the environmentally sound heating is provided by a combined heat and power plant (CHP), which simultaneously generates electricity. The facade with the linear and modern design will be an eye-catching architectural feature and will blend harmoniously into the surrounding housing development with its colour scheme.

All other details on the project can be found in the press release dated 30 November 2021.
