Topping-out ceremony at the future social and healthcare workers' school in Holbæk

The M. Goldschmidt Group has concluded an 11½-year non-terminable lease with Social & Healthcare College Zealand (the association of social and healthcare workers' schools on Zealand) for the construction of a new school on the company's site next to Slotshaven 3, Holbæk. The school will be located next to the residence halls, M. Goldschmidt Kollegiet Slotshaven.

The new social and healthcare workers' school will have a total floor space of around 3,500 sqm, and a big priority in the design process will be ensuring a good learning environment based on flexible spatial arrangements emphasising visibility and joint access to the communal facilities.

Construction is on schedule, and a topping-out ceremony was held recently to mark the coming of new and modern facilities for the social and healthcare students who will be moving into the buildings at the start of the school term in August 2013.

The Mayor of Holbæk, Søren Kjærsgaard, gave a speech at the ceremony, saying how pleased he was that the social and healthcare workers' school would be staying in Holbæk. Having a wide selection of educational activities is very important to the municipality and will serve to strengthen work placement efforts by local authorities. He thanked the M. Goldschmidt Group for a seamless collaboration.

The Deputy Director of Social & Healthcare College Zealand, Anders Sevelsted, said that he was looking forward to welcoming teachers and students in August 2013 and expressed great satisfaction with the entire process and the collaboration between all parties involved.

The new social and healthcare workers' school will be buzzing with activity – particularly within the large central atrium which is to house a whole range of activities, including a canteen and modern meeting facilities. The atrium can also be used for exhibitions. All classrooms will be state of the art, and the location near Holbæk's many educational establishments makes this an attractive area for the school.

The new social and healthcare workers' school is expected to attract students from well outside the local area so the school will also have new parking facilities.
