Call for SDAR Awards Submissions

The SDAR* Awards is a joint initiative between CIBSE Ireland and DIT, supported by Building Services News. The awards are unique in that they are intended to disseminate knowledge, encourage research in sustainable design of the built environment, and raise the quality of innovation and evaluation of such projects. Short abstracts (between 100 and 200 words max) for entry into the SDAR* Awards 2019 are now being sought and must be submitted by Monday, 25 February 2019, directly by email to Michael McDonald of DIT at michael.mcdonald@dit.ie.

Entries are required to critically evaluate real-life data, and examine both successes and challenges within leading-edge projects throughout Ireland or further afield. This competition is open to architects, engineers and all professionals involved in construction projects. As the built environment has gained momentum and is delivering many excellent projects, this unique synergy between industry and academia allows greater potential for integration of modern low-carbon technologies and low-energy design methodologies.

The SDAR* Awards competition is intended to create a platform for the growth of applied research in the expanding green economy. Post-occupancy evaluation and similar critical appraisal of low-energy projects facilities the transition from ideologically-driven innovations, sometimes offering poor value, to evidence-based applied research that proves value or identifies weaknesses that the industry can learn from. These successes and failures help inform the professional community across all the building industry disciplines.

From the abstracts submitted by the 25 February 2019 deadline, a shortlist will be selected by peer review, and those selected will be invited to prepare final papers by March 2019.
Candidates that present at the awards also have a chance of publishing their papers in the SDAR Journal arrow.dit.ie/sdar/ This year’s final will take place in March/April 2019 in DIT.

For further information contact: Michael McDonald, DIT. Email: michael.mcdonald@dit.ie.
