LSI Architects - UEA Crome Court

LSI Architects

This 232-bedroom, 5 to 7 storey ‘jewel in the crown’ of UEA’s East campus masterplan forms a south-facing U-shape. Constructed in CLT to an exacting programme (brief to opening in 24 months), the project achieved BREEAM Excellent, by incorporating many carbon-reducing measures, and a vertical greenwall, to offset loss of landscape.

UEA required new accommodation to support the growth in student numbers at the university, maintaining its identity as a campus university and its place in the world’s top 1% of Universities. The project was to be designed and built within a 22 month period on a site with limited space and constructed to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating.

Situated adjacent to the recent residence buildings, Crome Court creates a focal point at the end of the campus. The building varies between 5 and 7 storeys in height, and is laid out in a U-shaped configuration which opens towards the south. The orientation of the building makes best use of the limited space available.

As well as providing new residential capacity the building also accomodates accessible bedroom and kitchen-diner facilities for students, studio flats for senior residents and a flexible social space.

The £10.1million project was the first on the UEA’s estate to implement BIM Level 2 with a specific focus on delivering a complete 6D Asset Information Model (AIM) and comprehensive COBie Data Drop 4 for use by the estates management team in CAFM software concept evolution.
