ASHRAE 2018 Student Design Project Competition now is over!
CALL FOR ENTRIES: ASHRAE, a global society advancing human well-being through sustainable technology is accepting submissions for its 2018 student design competition dedicated to the design of energy-efficient HVAC systems to encourage students to become involved in a profession that is crucial to insuring a sustainable future for our Earth.
Student design competitions sponsored by ASHRAE, an global society advancing human well-being through sustainable technology for the built environment, is accepting submissions for its 2018 edition dedicated to the design of energy-efficient HVAC systems.
Students are encouraged to become involved in a profession that is crucial to insuring a sustainable future for Earth.
The 2018 student design competition focuses on a new 70,000 square foot (6,500 square meter), four story mixed use complex north of Istanbul, Turkey near Arnavutkoy which is just south of the new international airport. The facility features retail and office spaces, a restaurant, and a hotel in support of the upcoming rapid growth in the area when the airport is completed in 2019.
Teams may compete in one of the three categories:
• HVAC Design Calculations
• HVAC System Selection
• Integrated Sustainable Building Design (ISBD)
The final HVAC System Selection and Design for the proposed building should address the following major design goals:
• Low Life Cycle Cost
• Low Environmental Impact
• Comfort and Health
• Creative High Performance Green Design
• Synergy (with architecture)
Guidlines: All submissions are to be submitted electronically via the ASHRAE FTP site.
The submission for the HVAC Design Calculations competition must be in PDF format only! No separate visual aids will be accepted (PowerPoint, YouTube, etc). Deliverable presentation should consist of a 35-page maximum technical report in PDF format only. Font size should be 11 pts, utilizing either Arial or Times New Roman.
The submission for HVAC System Selection competition is limited to 15 minutes visual aid (PowerPoint, YouTube, etc.) All PPTs have to be automated and not page by page click ALONG with a 30-page maximum technical report in PDF format. Font size should be 11 pts, utilizing either Arial or Times New Roman.
The submission for the Integrated Sustainable Building Design competition is limited to 15 minutes (PowerPoint, YouTube, etc.) ALONG with a 35-page maximum technical report in PDF format. Font size should be 11 pts, utilizing either Arial or Times New Roman.
There will be three levels of evaluation. Evaluators at all levels will judge the design project reports, not only for content, but also for compliance with the contest rules.
ASHRAE will recognize the outstanding student design projects at the 2019 ASHRAE Winter Meeting to be held in Atlanta, GA, January 12-16, 2019.
