EVALUATION CRITERIA Project And Product Categories 1 Design Approach

2 Energy Efficiency

3 Environmental Quality – Indoor and Outdoor

4 Economics

5 Technology

The Design Approach is central to the Evaluation Criteria. It includes the will to embrace sustainable

design that values the environment and incorporates use of natural resources – such as solar power or

wind patterns. Improved load optimization and reduction that enhances the building's capacity,

performance and energy efficiency ratio are critical aspects here. Use of material technology as well as

safety facets considered will be important criteria.

Overall energy efficiency that reflects sustainable design will be considered. Fine practices exhibited,

such as the use of renewable energy, good strategy in system integration and control, high energy

efficiency etc will be benchmarked. The energy performance will need to be quantifiable.

For Product Evaluation, competition benchmarking (in lieu of system integration) will be an important


How the project/product impacts indoor air quality will be crucial. In case of Cold Chain Projects,

maintenance of temperature, RH levels, Specific Gas Emission Levels like Ethylene, CO2, and product

quality amongst other parameters would be taken into consideration. Use of eco-friendly refrigerants

will be crucial. Further, observing precise thermal comfort and air quality while maintaining low sound

for acoustic quality are some factors that will also be accounted for. For Product Evaluation, visual

integration will not be a criteria.

For Project Evaluation, important factors would be the building's life cycle cost, or the total life span

cost to purchase, install, operate and maintain the project. Optimum space utilization will also be

critical. For Product Evaluation, return on investment will be an important criteria.

Both for Projects and Products categories, important criteria will be reliability of design and ability to

withstand the rigours of time and usage. Ease of operation and maintenance will also be measured. An

ability to cater to a wide range of modulation capacity based on demand and scalability, will also be

assessed. Quality of Installation and Commissioning, use of intelligent systems and controls will all be

differentiating factors.
