Hi everyone,
ASHRAE has just announced its 2021 building energy modeling competition, the LowDown Showdown, below. It’s a great climate (Puerto Rico) with a great, challenging program, this year, and the competition committee would love to have more academic representation among the teams! Students can compete by (a) forming their own team; (b) joining with faculty and/or practitioners; or (c) signing up individually to be grouped with others who sign up individually.

Please let me know if you have any questions (arempel at uoregon.edu); I’ve competed twice myself, as part of the Parametric Posse with students and faculty from Ball State, and I’m now on the competition committee, working with Walter Grondzik and others to create ever-greater roles for passive systems in these competitions.

The details are below. Best of luck with the end of the term, for all of you on semesters, and hang in there, everyone on quarters!
Alex

2021 ASHRAE LowDown Showdown Competition

November 10 - 12, 2021 | ashrae.org/BuildPerform2021<https://urldefense.com/v3/__http:/www.mmsend21.com/link.cfm?r=1jTJoa0DyaFTSMyh2o-0aw**A&pe=XX30KCQ-QCYfwGU-04Oa9Cim-UtzqLsb-mjdr69RdU0igb04CCM5zWnEbeERDxvxN6I_wr0EedmAyHGUGEkbNw**A&t=uDZRTB52xJKFJ_2bA3JXWQ**A__;fn5-fn5-!!C5qS4YX3!R2XCLvSoVTUoM9lBDt6I1fVYHiqKEjQjDg_9LSEXb6wVA_bKckhaMZuVvqzqiOmKwQ$>
Model Building Announced for ASHRAE Modeling Competition

Unleash your design and modeling skills, collaborate with project team members and showcase your innovative building design to conference attendees!

Sign up NOW for the 7th Annual ASHRAE LowDown Showdown (LDSd) which will take place at the 2021 Building Performance Analysis Conference on November 10-12, 2021 in Denver, CO.

________________________________

Each year of the LDSd competition, we ask participating teams to take on a new challenge in building performance analysis. For 2021 the competition will ask teams to expand their comfort zone and take on the challenges of a tropical climate with particular challenges for resiliency and "near net zero" design. The competition will also require teams to use their creativity to develop schemes for engagement of the building & its occupants with the community.

The 2021 LDSd model building will be located in Puerto Rico. Participating Teams will design a 75,000 sf, residential care center located at a site on the island to be chosen by each team. The building will contain residences, offices, amenities and clinical spaces.

Here’s your chance to join an integrated team that will compete for fun and prizes in the annual LowDown Showdown modeling competition. Sign your team up today or sign up as an individual participant and we will put you on a team! Bring your imagination and analytical skills to the party and create the prototype building of the future!

Overview

The goal of the LowDown Showdown modeling competition is to engage participants in a collaborative and fun learning experience that explores new advances in building science, modeling and technology. Teams are comprised of building analysts, designers, architects, engineers and other participants. Teams will be responsible for creating the architectural design and a performance analysis model based on model building data. The teams may use any software or a combination of software to complete their projects.

Each team will create and submit a poster of their building design, complete the performance analysis model and results spreadsheet and write a one-page narrative on project workflow. Teams will present their projects at the BPAC conference and be judged by a panel of industry experts who will select the winners. Teams will be judged on eight categories: Creativity, Innovative Approaches, Sustainability/Durability, Energy Use, Indoor Environmental Quality, Workflow, Teamwork and Presentation.

The deadline to sign up to participate in the 2021 LowDown Showdown is May 20th.
