Rescue station DRK, Singen

Construction + Operation

Client representation

The 24-year-old rescue station of the "Deutsches Rotes Kreuz Kreisverband Landkreis Konstanz e. V." (German Red Cross or DRK) no longer met the requirements of a modern rescue station. The ambulances hardly fit into the building because of the larger superstructures. Moreover, the space for the approx. 60 staff members was becoming very limited. A new building was needed that would not only offer enough space, but would also be able to optimise daily operations.


Initially, various planning concepts were examined. One of the concepts included an outpatient care station and a day care facility in addition to the rescue station. After an intensive cost check, it became clear that the available funds, including various funding possibilities, were only sufficient to realise the rescue station without the care facilities. This variant was ultimately implemented. During the course of the project, the costs were closely monitored and controlled - the cost target was met in the end.

In our role as temporary cost auditor or cost consultant at the side of the DRK, it was necessary to overview and assess the planning and cost status of the planning team in the shortest possible time, to clarify anomalies and to make a reliable recommendation for action.

Added value

Due to our early involvement, the decision to start the project could be made on the right cost assumptions. Throughout the project, we were available to the DRK as a "secret weapon" with our cost expertise. The cost target was met and even slightly undercut by the time of completion in January 2022.
