31. 05. 2017

A special project is coming to an end in Cottbus: the new car park at the Carl-Thiem-Klinikum (CTK) is scheduled to open in September 2017. Deutsche Industrie- und Parkhausbau GmbH was delighted to receive a helping hand in mid-May.

As part of a colourful painting project in cooperation with Cottbus cartoonist Detlev Noack, twelve young patients at the Carl-Thiem-Klinikum joined by primary school pupils transformed six wooden boards into true works of art. They will be mounted on the construction fence of the planned car park and will provide a bit of cheer and colour during construction.

The car park will help to counteract a two-fold problem in Cottbus: first, visitors and patients can reach the clinic easier – which signifies an enormous improvement for persons with impaired walking ability. Second, its relieves the parking situation between the train station and the CTK noted Dr. Markus Niggemann, chairman of the CTK supervisory board and financial deputy of the city of Cottbus.

The top-offing ceremony is intended as a thank-you to the architect Dr. Jürgen Franke and all those involved in construction. A total of 243 new parking spaces are distributed across three levels and a total area of 9,350 square metres.
