Design Competition Outline Competition Specifications 2011 Competition Judging Criteria Student Submissions Evaluation Schedule Awards and Recognition Value in Participating
Competition Categories HVAC Systems Design HVAC Systems Selection Integrated Sustainable Building Design (ISBD)* Focus of 2011 Competition and Requirements
HVAC Systems Design For students who have attended 1-2 HVAC courses Focuses on "right-sizing" HVAC equipment and systems to provide an energy-efficient design for the facility Students are required to determine heating and cooling loads, and design an HVAC system Students must demonstrate compliance with ASHRAE Standards: – – –
HVAC Systems Selection For students at schools completing a dedicated HVAC or building environmental systems curriculum The project encourages students with a solid HVAC base to: – use life-cycle cost process – incorporate ASHRAE Standard Standard for the Design of High-Performance Green Buildings – Incorporate US Green Building Council's LEED™ Rating System or equivalent
Integrated Sustainable Building Design (ISBD) For a multidisciplinary team to include students in engineering, architecture, technology, and other allied fields Teams are asked to design a sustainable or “net zero” energy building Students will be asked to document select LEED credits (or an equivalent) measure the design Emphasis on whole-building design: – integrating architectural, construction, mechanical, electrical and other technical disciplines
