The 2005 Energy Efficiency Integration Awards (EEIA) Winners
For their expert integration of energy efficiency with outstanding architectural design, eight nonresidential projects in California have received honors as the culmination of the 2005 Savings By Design Energy Efficiency Integration Awards.
“Between the record number of entries and the general evolution of expertise in energy efficient design, this year’s competition was intense,” commented Charles Angyal, FAIA, Chief Architect at San Diego Gas & Electric. “But the deserving winners still rose solidly to the top, setting new standards for the design community.”
The jurors cited the projects’ masterful use of design to create beautiful, high quality working and learning environments that seamlessly integrate energy efficiency.
