The Lebenshilfe Lüneburg-Harburg day care center is moving into a rented ELA Container system for around 22 months. The previous nursery in the Lüneburg city centre is being torn down to build a new structure on the same site. Until it’s finished, the children will be playing and learning in the friendly, safe and compliant ELA room solution.

There is plenty of room to play in the inner courtyard.

Comprising 40 ELA premium containers, each three metres in width, the temporary day care center offers usable space of 700 m². The children and employees have access to nursery rooms, group rooms, recreational rooms, a multipurpose room, a kitchen, offices, sanitary facilities, storage rooms and a wardrobe.

Bright and spacious rooms for the daycare groups are complemented by a sanitary area, offices, lounges and a kitchen.
For a temporary structure of this size, this system offers a brilliant solution.

Safety comes first especially in nurseries. The technical equipment includes smoke and fire alarms, a fire-retardant finish on the walls and emergency exit lights. Plug sockets with child safety covers, one-metre-wide escape doors, finger trap protection on all the doors and heating with child-safe low-temperature radiators with scald protection are just some of the features specially tailored to the little ones’ needs. The sinks and taps in the sanitary facility are installed at a lower height for children, and the hot water supply features scald protection. The equipment also includes an accessible WC. The exterior doors feature handles installed at a higher position and can only be opened using an additional button.

The connecting doors between rooms and corridors are equipped with finger trap protection.
Tidiness is a must - even in a daycare center. The right furniture ensures that everything has its place.

“We were looking for a partner that has experience with nurseries,” says Ruth Andrick, Head of the Day Care Center Department at Lebenshilfe Lüneburg- Harburg. That’s how they found out about ELA Container.
