The 2002 Energy Efficiency Integration Awards (EEIA) Winners

International Terminal at San Francisco Airport

Five outstanding nonresidential buildings have been recognized for their integration of energy efficiency and architectural design as the culmination of the 2002 Savings By Design Energy Efficiency Integrations Awards competition. The winning design teams received their awards at the 2002 AIACC Awards Celebration in San Francisco on Sept. 22. The announcement was made jointly by the competition’s cosponsors: Pacific Gas and Electric, San Diego Gas and Electric, Southern California Edison, Southern California Gas Company, and the AIA, California Council.

“This year’s entries raised the level of competition across the board,” commented Janith Johnson, AIA, manager of nonresidential new construction programs at Southern California Edison. “It made the jurors’ job more difficult, but it was gratifying to see better examples than ever of the integration of energy efficiency in new building design that we are fostering through the Savings By Design program.”

The jurors chose two projects for Awards of Honor, citing their intelligent integration of energy efficiency into aesthetically outstanding building design. They bestowed Citations of Merit to three more projects for achieving specific aspects of energy-efficient and sustainable design.
