Version of this project
Crome Court is UEA’s newest and most energy efficient accommodation block, and the one with the strongest environmental credentials. The award-winning and BREEAM Excellent project, delivered to the University in August 2014, came in £800 000 under budget, in a record-breaking timescale and as one of the first projects in the UK to have achieved a fully-integrated BIM Level 2. Building on previous lessons from other elements of UEA’s low carbon campus, it pioneered new techniques and intelligent modelling concepts. The building saves over 74 tonnes of carbon per year. The building includes 232 en-suite student residential rooms, with kitchen and dining rooms per flat, and a communal facility on the ground floor. It is arranged in 5 to 7 storeys in a south-facing U-shaped configuration. Its high-quality spec and finish has ensured very positive response from residents and a new level of environmental data to help shape future accommodation design at UEA.
