The 2005 Energy Efficiency Integration Awards (EEIA) Winners

Global Ecology Research Center

For their expert integration of energy efficiency with outstanding architectural design, eight nonresidential projects in California have received honors as the culmination of the 2005 Savings By Design Energy Efficiency Integration Awards.

“Between the record number of entries and the general evolution of expertise in energy efficient design, this year’s competition was intense,” commented Charles Angyal, FAIA, Chief Architect at San Diego Gas & Electric. “But the deserving winners still rose solidly to the top, setting new standards for the design community.”

The jurors cited the projects’ masterful use of design to create beautiful, high quality working and learning environments that seamlessly integrate energy efficiency.

    Award of Honor

    This research facility at Stanford University houses 45 researchers and staff in roughly 25,000 square feet. Its functions include laboratory, office, workshop, greenhouse, and storage space. The project team set an overall goal of 50 percent lower energy use than Title 24 while maintaining a very modest construction budget and meeting the strictest standards for safe air management in the lab and excellent indoor air quality in the offices. In addition, strategies such as natural daylighting and radiant heating/cooling assure optimum occupant thermal, and acoustic and visual comfort.
