Expansion maternity hospital Terra Alta Oberkirch

With the new extension in timber construction, the maternity hospital finally has enough space for expectant parents.

The occupancy of Terra Alta has increased so much over the years that the family rooms need to be almost doubled from four to seven. In addition, the expansion also includes expanding the living area and the kitchen. With the help of an interim arrangement, Terra Alta was able to ensure sufficient space and services for the continuous growth of newborn babies. The new facilities were ready seven months later, thanks to the fast speed of timber construction.
