Cambridge has an increasing demand for more high-quality graduate accommodation to meet the future growth strategy of the University, the Colleges and the City.

The Cranmer Road project has developed as a practical response to this growing need. The project amalgamates some of King’s College’s central sites to create a new ‘graduate campus’. It is building for the long-term by working to a 100 year design life for new buildings. It responds to environmental concerns and projected fuel costs with a very low energy all-electric scheme and it utilises Passivhaus standard as the method to deliver these energetic, environmental, and economic benefits.

This presentation describes the project, the Passivhaus process, and reflects on the lessons learned from an architectural and engineering perspective.
