Hamburg/Lengerich, 5 January 2021. Cureus GmbH specialises in the development of system care home and has received approval for the construction of a senior residence in Lengerich. The development plan for the 9,000-square-metre site at Schulstraße 46 in 49525 Lengerich envisages two buildings with different utilisation components to provide a comprehensive, modular range of services for senior citizens. A total of 8,600 square metres of living and usable space is being created. One of the two buildings along Schulstraße will house 80, single-room inpatient care places on three floors as well as ten units for assisted living on the additional recessed floor. A café, a hair and pedicure salon will also be available to residents, guests and the public on the ground floor of the building. The second building, located on the eastern side of the site, is designed as an apartment building with three floors plus a recessed floor and has 29 assisted living units and ten places for out-of-hospital intensive care. An outpatient care facility with eighteen places will be located on the ground floor of the building.
The modern architecture and the clear design language of the buildings will blend harmoniously into the surrounding residential development. Special attention will be paid to the design of the outdoor facilities. Spacious open and green spaces will offer future residents high-quality places to relax and interact. A total of 63 parking spaces will be provided for the senior residence and the apartment building.
The senior residence will be operated by the MEDIKO Group, the specialist care provider of the SCHÖNES LEBEN Group. Approximately 80 – 100 new, attractive jobs will be created in Lengerich.
“We are delighted about the new location and are confident that we can offer seniors in Lengerich an attractive living environment combined with modern and innovative services”, says Susanne Thon, Managing Director of the MEDIKO Group.
“After receiving the building permit in November 2020, the demolition of the existing buildings will now begin, followed by excavation work”, says Kay Grünewald, Project Manager for Cureus GmbH, adding: “We expect shell construction work to begin in April 2021, and the completion and hand-over to MEDIKO should then take place in spring 2022 after only about one year of construction”.
Lengerich’s Mayor Wilhelm Möhrke is thrilled that the construction project is now getting underway and that demolition work began in December 2020: “We have excellent partners in Cureus GmbH and MEDIKO, who are implementing a modern and high-quality construction project on the former KLR site. The new complex will complement the attractive care and residential services in Lengerich and the region”. The Mayor, local politicians and municipal authorities are proud of the high quality of health care in the region. Lengerich is thus increasingly developing into an important healthcare location in Münsterland.
The sellers of the land expressed particular thanks to Lengerich’s Mayor Wilhelm Möhrke, above all for his professional approach to striking a balance between the interests of the various stakeholders with a targeted solution for such an important development at this location. The sale of the land was brokered by Detlev Höhn Immobilien.
The senior residence is being 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 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. 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.
