THE PROPERTY: The Berlin Charité university hospital is the most prominent representative and defender of healthcare standards in Germany. It was founded near Berlin in 1710 as a precautionary measure to care for victims of an anticipated plague outbreak. Since then it has been developed and extended steadily and it is now one of Europe’s largest and most prestigious university hospitals.
THE PLANNING: Fittings in hospitals often have to satisfy special requirements in order to be acceptable for daily use under very varied hygienic conditions. This is where hygiene standards are extreme and the reliability of the water supply has the highest priority – which is very significant from the planning point of view.
The Charité relies on versatile special fittings solutions developed by HANSA specifically for the health sector, such as the HANSAMEDIPRO wall faucet with object loop lever. In addition, HANSATEMPRA and HANSACARE exposed thermostats and HANSAMEDIJET hand showers were installed.
