The 2000 Energy Efficiency Integration Awards (EEIA) Winners

Newport Coast Elementary School

The elegant splendor of the Queen Mary was the perfect setting for the formal gala celebrating the Annual AIACC Awards on June 15, 2000. This event recognizes and honors outstanding architectural design as well as those individuals who have made significant contributions on behalf of the profession, their communities, and the profession of architecture. Among the honors this year was a totally new and separate awards program recognizing the integration of energy efficiency with outstanding architectural design.

Introducing the first-ever Savings By Design Energy Efficiency Integration Awards was Charles Angyal, AIA, chief architect of new construction energy efficiency programs with San Diego Gas and Electric Company. Angyal was joined by Janith Johnson, AIA, manager of new construction services for Southern California Edison and Misti Bruceri, program manager of commercial new construction programs, from Pacific Gas and Electric Company, representing the other sponsoring utilities.

"We are proud to present the Savings By Design Energy Efficiency Integration Awards during this prestigious event," Angyal stated. "We believe that award-winning design together with high building performance creates the optimum project. This new awards program, co-sponsored by the AIACC, honors design teams and their clients who have worked together to make significant progress toward achieving award-winning design while pursuing high-performance building goals."

Johnson commented, "Each juror brought to the selection process a unique background and direct experience with meeting the challenges posed by blending high performance criteria with award-winning design."
