The University of East Anglia’s student development, Hickling House and Barton House has now achieved a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating which Ingleton Wood’s sustainability team assessed under the New Construction BREEAM Multi-Residential scheme.
The buildings are formed in CLT reducing the embodied carbon and enabling a rapid form of construction which assisted in delivering the project within the programme. The building also utilises the university’s biomass CHP plant, features PV panels and high insulation levels and water saving installations. The highly sustainable buildings mean that the University can look forward to reduced energy and running costs in comparison with other
The project benefited from Ingleton Wood’s sustainability team expert advice to achieve the coveted BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating and further supports the University’s environmental policies and carbon reduction plans to promote sustainable design. The two new buildings have been delivered to BIM Level 2 including the delivery of an Asset Information Model, with useful data brought together in a useable format for the client for facilities management purposes.
The project achieved a final Certification Score of 72.9%, providing the
students with a new, highly sustainable living facility.
“The quality of the campus is a key consideration in many students’ decisions in choosing a University. These new buildings further enhance the quality of design of student residences at the University campus. The standards of sustainability are very high, and this has all been achieved within a challenging budget and to a very fast programme of 22 months from concept to completion.” - Trevor Price, Partner, LSI Architects
