ANNOUNCEMENT SOON FOR ANOTHER EXCITING COMPETITION FROM TESA.
KEEP FOLLOWING US.
SPONSORS and CO-ORGANIZERS: BUILDSIM (https://www.buildsim.io/)
WORK IN PROGESS :)
A Trailer with some suspense:
We will have a competition case study, like the one that you have currently. Basically a site and a building type.
We will not limited the use of software tools to create a model (but the tool has to be able to export EnergyPlus, gbXML or OSM). Possibly You can even set one of the prototype building as starting point.
We might set a goal to optimize the building design - whether it is net-zero or going for zero with budget constraints. You never know :)
We will encourage innovative workflow - use algorithms, parametric, random samplings, optimizations, machine learning etc.
We will encourage think out of box measures that can reduce the energy consumption.
We will encourage creative data visualization that tells the design stories well.
The results will be displayed with BuildSim Dash and by the time, we will host a website for everyone to vote the dashboards (sort of like IBPSA's project stasio)
For people who wants to learn python scripting and leverage python for machine learning and data visualization, SIMBUILD also coach them through the competition, and to help them stay competitive in the market.
