laying of the foundation stone in Großkrotzenburg – new construction of a nursing home
In November 2019 the time had come again – a laying of the foundation stone, this time in Großkrotzenburg for the turnkey new construction and extension of the Theresa nursing home. The laying of the foundation stone is a ceremony to consecrate the foundation stone on which the new building will be built.
However, this ceremony is not usually held at the actual start of construction, but usually at the beginning of the earthworks. The laying of the foundation stone is celebrated especially in churches and public and semi-public buildings.
During the ceremonial laying of the foundation stone, symbolic blows are made to the foundation stone with a foundation stone hammer. Foundation stones are usually hollow and contain a so-called “time capsule”, in which, among other things, a document with details of the building project, contemporary witnesses such as a current daily newspaper or money coins and symbolic objects can be placed. The laying of the foundation stone of the nursing home Theresa was a successful event, in which also some future residents participated with interest.
