Model competition for old peoples care centres
Well-founded specialist knowledge qualified GUS as the winner of the 1st. prize in a competition to realise a model project for "costs saving design of high quality old peoples' nursing homes", assigned by the Federal Ministry of Family, Seniors, Women and Youth Affairs. The project evolved from a growing conflict between quality standards and economic efficiency. With the help of the model project this problem was solved.
