[holo_tab title=”Event Overview” color=”#000000″]
The emphases of the competition are the integration of the engineered systems and construction management plan for a high performance building; collaboration; competition; and peer review, all of which are critical to building design and construction. Students are encouraged to work together in multi-disciplinary teams and consider how the engineered systems enhance the architecture of the building. Through the competition process, it is anticipated that students will demonstrate the knowledge and skills that will make them valuable building industry professionals. The challenging conditions specified for the competition will encourage the participants to think creatively and provide innovative solutions.
The competition is open to both graduate and undergraduate students in accredited architectural engineering programs and programs actively seeking accreditation by EAC/ABET. Students that are not enrolled in an accredited architectural engineering program or programs actively seeking accreditation by EAC/ABET may be members of the team but may not be the team leader. Teams from architectural engineering programs that are not accredited will be allowed to partner with students in an accredited architectural engineering program. Each team shall be supervised and advised by a faculty advisor or team of advisors. Submissions are to be entered in the building systems integration category and additionally one or more of the following four categories: structural systems design; mechanical systems design; electrical systems design; and innovative construction management and construction methods.

I’m not seeing any video?
How do I increase the viewing quality to HD?
On a Laptop or Desktop:
Video quality is adjustable by clicking the “HD” button on the bottom row of the player. Select “720p” for HD resolution, “360p” for medium resolution or “270p” for lower resolution. A higher resolution setting will require a faster internet connection. Select “Auto” to have the player automatically choose a quality based on your connection speed or you may visit www.speedtest.net to determine your speed manually. Please refer to the guidelines below for determining if your connection is fast enough for a particular streaming quality setting.
On a Mobile Device or Tablet:
Adroid-based devices will default to 270p video. A higher resolution may be achieved by clicking on the “Quality Select” buttons beneath the player. If you are watching via a 3g or 4g cellular connection, or if you are using an older device, it is recommended to stay in the 270p setting for optimal playback. Please refer to the guidelines below for determining if your connection is fast enough for a particular streaming quality setting.
iOS-based devices will automatically load an appropriate video quality setting based on available bandwidth and may fluctuate to a different quality setting if network conditions change.
Internet Download Speed Requirements for Different Quality Settings:
720p = 3,000 kbps (3.00 mbps) or above
360p = 1,200 kbps (1.20 mbps) or above
270p = 500 kbps (0.50 mbps) or above
You may visit www.speedtest.net to determine your internet speed.
Tips for viewing on a mobile device or tablet:
At least 350 kbps download speed is required to view smooth video. While fast 3g or 4g cellular connections will work just fine, for best playback, try using a hi-speed WiFi connection. If video playback is constantly pausing or buffering, your internet speed is most likely not fast enough. In these instances, it is advised to attempt one of the following solutions:
1). Switch to the lowest quality setting (270p)
2). Switch to viewing on a laptop or desktop
3). Find a faster internet connection
Additional Tips for iOS Devices:
-You may need to hit the center “Play” button twice or refresh the page to load the player. Some versions of iOS will require you to refresh the page if you have paused the live video and would like to resume playback.
-If you are viewing on an iOS device and are having trouble loading the default player, click here to load a compatible stream.
Additional Tips for Android, BlackBerry and Kindle Devices:
-Some devices (especially Kindles) will fail to load audio the first time you load the stream. Try exiting and reloading the player.
-If you are viewing on an Android, BlackBerry or Kindle and are having trouble loading the default player, click here to load a compatible stream.
