About Lowdown Showdown:

Held in conjunction with the conference, the ASHRAE Lowdown Showdown modeling challenge showcased the work of eight teams and over 80 participants, who competed to model a net zero or below building. The baseline building was a 50,000 ft2, 3-story Outpatient Health Care facility.

Each team was comprised of at least one coach, captain and registered attendees who adopted roles on each team, such as engineer, architect, designer and energy modelers.  The teams were given a common playing field with “Model Building Requirements.”

A half day of the conference was devoted to the Lowdown Showdown for the teams to present their projects, attendees to ask questions and voting.  The models were created using the available industry software thereby providing excellent hands-on examples of how to use different aspects of the software.

Teams were evaluated in five categories: energy, teamwork, practicality, creativity and workflow.  Conference attendees voted electronically for the best model in each category. The results were announced at a reception that evening.
