Due to the demographic change, there is a rising demand for age-appropriate living. In Nortrup by the Care centre at Hammerfeldweg 2 we have enlarged their space. Therefore we Constructed for the Nortrup Verwaltungs-GmbH a 18 x 43 m large thee-story-expansion with 50 places, which is built right angled o the 2005 opened nursing centre.
On the ground floor of the building there is a day care centre with 15 rooms, staff rooms and additionally two more apartments. Besides that the first floor has nine more apartments. In the attic of the building are 11 apartments for an assisted Housing group. The building also has a multi-purpose and function room. The facade is designed in accordance with the Existing as double-shell brickwork with clinker and Thermal insulation composite system in white. The double gable and the flat roof in the area of the Corridors characterizes the appearance of this building. The aluminium outer doors and plastic windows as well as the presented balconies in slate grey set further colour accents. The outer walls of the new building are made of Lime sand brick flat elements with a thickness of 17.5 cm. Inside the walls were made of sand lime brick plan elements or drywall construction according to static requirements. The ceiling are filigree ceiling with concrete on top. In the top floor wooden beam ceilings was installed. In the rooms is a white wooden beamed ceiling, the floors are mode from vinyl and tiled bathrooms.
The project posed a challenge in terms of building physics because the non-ventilated flat roof was constructed from a wooden beam ceiling and in such constructions with damage from condensation water leakage is to be expected. Due to the attachment to the existing building special fire protection requirements must be taken into account. Therefore the attic of the existing building was fire-protected in order to realize the escape route via the attic. The building also received an energy-efficient ventilation system with Heat pump in the area of the flat roof.
