The University of East Anglia’s (UEA) Blackdale development, designed by LSI Architects and constructed by R G Carter, has reached completion in time to welcome 514 students to Norwich.
The scheme also includes a large landscaped courtyard, a launderette and a café with roof terrace. The two new student residence buildings have been named Hickling House and Barton House.
The project achieves a BREEAM Excellent rating and further supports the UEA’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.
