Cureus appoints Frank Oberländer as new Head of Construction & Project Management
Hamburg, 3 March 2021. Cureus GmbH specialises in the development of system care homes and has appointed Frank Oberländer as its new Head of Construction & Project Management as of 1 March 2021. Oberländer, together with COO Christian Möhrke, will continue to drive the growth of Cureus’ operational business in his new position. Cureus is currently optimising the deployment and expansion of its existing competences and resources as it refines its system care home approach to complete more than 20 system care homes per year in the future and thus address the supply side shortage of care places in Germany.
Frank Oberländer (43) is a graduate engineer and brings to Cureus his experience in the construction of residential, commercial, production and special properties as well as his extensive professional network of contacts from 20 years in the construction and real estate industry. After holding positions at Otto Wulff and Alpine Bau Deutschland, among others, Oberländer was most recently with Hanseatische Immobilien Treuhand, where he was responsible for production, project preparation, purchasing, costing and civil engineering as managing director since 2018.
Christian Möhrke, COO of Cureus GmbH: “We are delighted to have attracted Frank Oberländer to the innovative approach of Cureus as Head of Construction & Project Management and welcome him to the team. After doubling our team to around 100 employees in January 2021, with Frank Oberländer we are taking a very important step on our growth journey with an experienced leader and look forward to having him on our team”.
Cureus continues to grow as planned
The company last reported in January 2021 that it had doubled its team to around 100 employees with the integration of two external general contractors (GC) (to the press release). Furthermore, in addition to the GC teams and Frank Oberländer, a further eleven new employees have joined Cureus so far in the first quarter of 2021, both in the operational and central divisions, in order to secure the targeted growth goals. In March 2021, Cureus will thus have a team of around 110 employees.
The system care homes approach
All Cureus projects are 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 and include, for example, optimised floor plans and conveniently arranged rooms 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, 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. The 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 and 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.
