Teams from around the world will come together to create
an architectural design and a performance analysis model
based on model building data in the
2022 ASHRAE LowDown Showdown modeling competition.
The 2022 competition will ask the question “How low can
you go?” in reference to operational energy, operational
carbon emissions, embodied/emitted carbon, and water
consumption. Teams will design a K-5 school in
Albuquerque, NM to serve 450 students in an educational
setting that provides appropriate spaces for elementary
education as well as community uses—and can be adapted
to future challenges and changes.
The early bird registration cost to attend the
conference in-person is $625 for ASHRAE members ($675
for non-members) through August 5. Virtual registration
cost is $300 for ASHRAE members ($350 for non-members).
Earn Professional Development Hour (PDH) credits by
attending sessions listed in the Technical Program.
State of NY PDHs, AIA LUs and LEED AP credits will also
be awarded for select sessions.
