Built in 2010 for Integra GmbH, a major provider and operator of kinder-gardens in eastern Germany, Groben Nursery School was a full design and build, turn key project for STREIF. Starting on site in June and handing over the finished building in mid September certainly impressed the client, and future school projects are currently in development with them.
The 963 m² building was designed to be a practical, functional and cost effective solution to the shortage of nursery places for children, at a time when educational budgets are being squeezed across Europe. The result is a spacious, welcoming and light set of rooms on the ground floor with a small mezzanine area above.
The nursery is proving very popular with teachers, parents and children alike, and is being used as a template for play centres in other countries where high quality, high speed, no frills, off site building solutions are required.
