Join the Autodesk SimBuild 2016 Energy Modeling Team!

April 20, 2016

We are thrilled to be participating again this year in the ASHRAE LowDown Showdow Challenge at SimBuild 2016! For those unfamiliar, last year Autodesk participated at the ASHRAE Energy Modeling Conference with a volunteer team of architects and energy modelers. The primary goal of this challenge was to showcase the talents and skillsets of the team members and demonstrate workflow capabilities of software tools used to design a high performance building. Read more about last year’s project here.

Things are just kicking off this year and we have room for any interested participants. If you want to be a part of the team and get hands on training and experience with Insight 360, Revit, and FormIt, please reach out! We are looking for team members to fill the following roles:

  • Engineers
  • Architects
  • Designers
  • Energy modelers

This year the challenge will be a 50,000 ft2 outpatient health care facility in Omaha, Nebraska. Read more about the conference and modeling challenge here.


ASHRAE and IBPSA-USA SimBuild 2016 takes place in Salt Lake City, Utah August 10th – 12th.
