From the idea…
Together with the Instant-Home-Foundation e. V. in Reutlingen and the company Vöhringer GmbH in Trochtelfingen, the Ladakh Medical Aid gGmbH develops a plan to build and test a dental clinic and then transport it to India.
… to the planning …
An architectural firm from Germany and the USA designs the building and the unique panel construction, which can be transported, and put together by only a few people. The planning is carried out by the team of architects HANNAH (Frank Prochiner, Sasa Zivkovic, Alexander Chmarin). Representatives of the Rotary Club Stuttgart-Filder, as well as numerous craftsmen and many sponsors from trade and industry lend their indispensible support.
… to the realization of this project, countless diligent helpers have actively tackled this challenge!
Wood construction is carried out by the company Vöhringer GmbH,
Master Carpenter Achim Wiegmann acts as construction manager,
Andreas Lutz (AL)-Sanitär in Stuttgart is responsible for the sanitary planning; electrical planning and installation are carried out by a team of the FU Trier and Natalino Meixner-Malandrino (Schnell Ingenieure, Tuttlingen).
The collection of the building materials, the test set-up, and the technical fine-tuning are done in a large warehouse. Uner the direction of Achim Wiegmann (Schreinerei Wiegmann, Kernen), together with Felix Wiegmann and Simon Maier, the buildings aere constructed from three different types of panels, and stabilizing square timbers.
Responsible for the interior construction:
The electric team under the direction of Natalino Meixner-Malandrino, together with Christian Schäfer, Maximilian Schmalen and Markus Neukirch (University of Trier). They ensure an uninterruptble power supply, modern and sustainable LED lighting, and secure cable connections. In total, more than 4 km of cables are laid!
The sanitary team, under the direction of Andreas Lutz together with Sylvia Lutz and Thomas Höhn, is responsible for heating, compressed air, and water, as well as sanitary facilities. However, a 30-meter-deep well drilling and groundwater development must be carried out prior to, in order to have high quality drinking water available all year round.
Mrs. Ulrike Roos, Roland Tröndle and Jürgen Reinbold are the „helpers for all cases“ and don’t hesistate to tackle where reliable, diligent hands are needed.
Hans Kopecek provides the expertise in dental technology needed for establishing the dental infrastracture.
Dr. Kunsang Dechen and Dr. Rainer Roos take on the tasks related to organizing, replenishment and logistics. It is a challenge to organize things in this remote Himalayan region that can normally be found in every home improvement store here in Germany. There’s a lot to do – paint work, floor laying, roof sealing, baseboards, and so much more must be taken care of in addition to installing the supplied dental unit.
The Ladakh Medical Aid gGmbH would like to thank all helpers and supporters for their incredible work!
