2010 Design Competition Gives Students Hands-On Experience
September 23, 2010

Engineering practices such as BIM, geothermal and combined cooling, heating and power are highlighted in the winning entries in the 2010 American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Student Design Competition.

This year’s Student Design Competition featured a mock design of the Ginsburg Tower at Florida Hospital in Orlando, Fla. This structure, the tallest hospital building in the state, is a 15-story patient tower that contains the Florida Hospital Cardiovascular Institute, 440 patient beds and one of the largest emergency departments in the country. Among the 31 entries from around the world, three in particular stood out as first place winners in the three categories that the Competition offers.

The first place teams are given 10-15 minutes to present their projects at the 2011 Winter Conference in Las Vegas, Nev., Jan. 29th-Feb. 2nd.
