Call for Participation ASHRAE Design Competition 2019

Call for Participation: ASHRAE Design Competition 2019. The 2019 student competition focuses on a new small hospital in Budapest, Hungary. The final HVAC System Selection and Design for the proposed building shall address the following major design goals:

Low Life Cycle Cost
Low Environmental Impact
Comfort and Health
Creative High-Performance Green Design
Synergy (with architecture)

ASHRAE calls for students to participate and become involved in a profession that is vital to ensuring a better future for our earth – the design of energy-efficient HVAC systems. ASHRAE will recognize the outstanding student design projects at the 2020 ASHRAE Winter Meeting to be held February 2020 in Orlando, Florida.

The student design competition’s guidelines provide enough background information to enable the teams to design or select the HVAC system for the given building or to design a sustainable building implementing an integrated building design process (the architectural and building design for sustainability, and its supporting mechanical and electrical systems) for the given program.

The Integrated Sustainable Building Design (ISBD) competition’s aim is to encourage students to extend their knowledge beyond the core mechanical systems. For the ISBD category, the final design level presented may be in a preliminary stage, as the competition’s basic intention is to challenge students’ imaginative thinking and creative engineering approach to the building and all of its systems.

Teams may compete in one of the three categories:
HVAC Design Calculations
HVAC System Selection
Integrated Sustainable Building Design (ISBD)

The fundamental goal of this design competition category is to encourage students to obtain experience in the ISBD process. Architects and engineers should work together from the very beginning to determine building orientation, layout, materials, mechanical systems, and electrical systems that meet the client’s needs and work with the surrounding environment to minimize energy consumption.

ASHRAE, founded in 1894, is a global society advancing human well-being through sustainable technology for the built environment. The Society and its members focus on building systems, energy efficiency, indoor air quality, refrigeration and sustainability within the industry. Through research, standards writing, publishing and continuing education, ASHRAE shape tomorrow’s built environment today. ASHRAE was formed as the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers by the merger in 1959 of American Society of Heating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) founded in 1894 and The American Society of Refrigerating Engineers (ASRE) founded in 1904.

In 2012, as part of a rebranding, ASHRAE began doing business as “ASHRAE” vs. using its full legal name of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers. Use of ASHRAE reflects the Society’s worldwide membership and that services will continue evolving globally.
