Buildings for children and for leisure
The first day of nursery marks a new life stage. Parents choose the right nursery for their child carefully, and along with the educational concept and the staff to child ratio the premises play an important role. The nursery owners need also to look at the building’s economic aspects and must keep an eye on the hygiene, fire protection and safety provisions. We provide support at the planning stage and reconcile the varying demands of children and parents, nursery nurses and operators as well as the statutory requirements.
Making children’s eyes light up
The change in the legal situation means that the issues of childcare and the construction of nurseries are more current than ever. The budget and timetable are often very tight. Here, we are able to draw on our many years of construction experience to good effect, and we look at every project individually and as a whole. It is on this basis that the building concept is developed – for child day care centres, sports and leisure facilities this is again the best approach to realising bespoke buildings. In the case of childcare facilities, in particular, we look at our projects not only with our engineering knowledge and experience but also from a child’s perspective. It is, of course, the children’s eyes we want to light up.
Keeping an eye on operating costs
To keep operating and maintenance costs low we develop concepts for sustainable facilities, for example using a well-insulated building shell, state-of-the-art building technology which relies on heating systems that conserve resources or on the integration of photovoltaic systems. Underfloor heating, for example, helps to ensure a comfortable play environment for the children.
In addition to the wishes and requirements of the small visitors, FREYLER doesn’t lose sight of the needs of facility management and the nursery staff. Depending on what is needed, we include group and movement rooms, community zones and rooms for personnel, technology and materials in our plans. Any potential sources of danger are excluded right from the start. For instance, detergents are stored under lock and key, corners are rounded and the drawstrings of the blinds present no risk of accidental strangulation. Of course, we also keep a close eye on all laws and regulations governing the building of nurseries and accident prevention.
Because we don't just implement off-the-shelf building concepts but discuss every project in detail with our principals before planning it individually, we are able to develop realisable drafts for less common leisure facilities such as indoor play areas and subsequently implement them. In this process, we always keep an eye on deadlines and budgets.
