LG Electronics Inc. will be sponsoring this year’s HVAC Design Award Asia as part of the brand’s continuous commitment to developing new innovations and providing electronic products that help consumers live better.
The competition is organized by the Society of Air-Conditioning and Refrigerating Engineers of Korea (SEAK) that aims to provide a fair, ethical, and competitive platform to highlight, incentivize and advocate good HVAC designs and bring subsidiary consultants with different experience levels and diverse disciplines across four Asian countries including Vietnam, the Philippines, Thailand, and Singapore.
“We, at LG Electronics, have always believed that to fully offer optimum solutions and new experiences, we stick to the fundamentals — people, sincerity, and sustainable innovation to achieve a better life. We are looking forward to seeing how the latest design and advances in technology can help us break through in solving our most pressing environmental challenges,” said LG Electronics Philippines managing director Sungjae Kim.
HVAC Design Award Asia’s chosen teams will get support from LG Electronics’ technical and non-technical members throughout the competition while the winning team will have the chance to represent their country for the finals in September.
One team will have the chance to win a gold medal along with LG Electronics products or travel vouchers worth USD6,000 in total. Two teams will be awarded a silver medal and a total of USD3,000 worth of prizes. Total prizes worth USD1,500 will be given to the three teams who will win bronze. The official announcement of winners will be held in Korea in October.
The judges are composed of executive group members of renowned mechanical and HVAC-related departments from Major Universities and PhDs from the National Laboratory of HVAC R&D in Korea.
Judging criteria will include how the design proposal was built, and its added value to building by utilizing new products and solutions such as Multi V 5, Multi V S, Dual Vane, Air-purification kit, DOAS (Dedicated Outdoor Air System), Multi V Water and TMS (Total Management System). Each design submitted will be categorized into 4 buckets – Needs, Approach, Benefits, and Differentiation.
