Weser-Elbe Sparkasse is currently developing its Otterndorf branch into a modern bank with everything it needs to advise customers. It is ex-tremely important to the people in charge of the project that Sparkasse customers can continue to make use of its services during the renovations with as few limitations as possible. The solution is a mobile branch made from ELA room modules.


The two-storey ELA system is situated in the Sparkasse car park behind the building itself. It has everything the bank needs to offer advice and service. The entrance to the temporary system features a ramp for accessibility.
