Judges will base their evaluation of each submission on the following criteria in priority order:
* Originality or innovative character of the design
The design submission shall be original and include innovations in building design and construction that improve quality, efficiency, and value.
* Integration and Collaboration
The design submission should show how the individual systems integrate with the other engineered systems and the architecture of the building. Additionally, the teams shall demonstrate the collaboration between team members and disciplines.
* Sustainability, energy efficiency and economics of the design
The design submission should demonstrate sustainable design and shall include design considerations that improve building performance such as: energy efficiency, water efficiency, emissions reduction, improved environmental quality, and efficient selection and use of resources to minimize environmental impact. The submission may also demonstrate how construction materials and equipment will be utilized in unique ways, minimizing waste and promoting sustainability.
* The design submission should demonstrate cost and benefit of the solution; including estimated life span; and life cycle analysis/consideration.
* Meeting the project requirements, codes & standards
The design submission should demonstrate how the specified design challenges will be addressed as well as how all applicable codes and standards are met at a design development level of detail for the complete building. The design submission should keep the health, safety and welfare of the building occupants in mind. The design will also be evaluated on the feasibility of the design.
* Project management
The design submission should demonstrate how the design will meet scheduling and budget constraints as well as demonstrate teamwork. The design submission should demonstrate clear, detailed, yet concise reporting. In addressing the specific issues of the Competition Program, submissions must clearly demonstrate the design solution’s response.
The initial submittals will be used by the judges to determine the finalist teams that will present at the 2013 AEI Conference scheduled for April 3 to 5, 2013 in University Park, Pennsylvania.
At the completion of presentations, the judges will determine the winning submittal in each category.
