The King’s College’s Cranmer Road site will provide new sustainable student accommodation – the first of its kind in Cambridge.

To mark this important milestone in the project, the provost of King’s, Professor Michael Proctor, and project manager, Shane Alexander, joined representatives from RG Carter at a ground-breaking ceremony on site in October.

Speaking at the ceremony, Richard Clark, director of RG Carter, said: “The ground-breaking ceremony was a great opportunity for us to welcome staff, to mark the start of the development and thank everyone involved.

“Our focus now is on delivering a successful project and providing quality sustainable accommodation that will serve students for many years to come.”

The student housing will be built to a Passivhaus standard, a sustainable housing initiative, resulting in ultra-low energy buildings that need very little fuel for heating or cooling.

It is expected that students will take up occupation in autumn 2019.
