ACEI Design Innovation Award 2005

GMIT Library and Information Resource Centre

The GMIT Library project was judged to be outstanding in terms of its innovation; for the effective combination of [1] the dynamic thermal computer modelling to simulate the performance of the building in use, [2] the deployment of sophisticated information gathering devices to monitor changes in the internal and external climates, and [3] the application of simple design solutions, to use the information gathered to create comfortable environmental conditions within the naturally ventilated library spaces.
The application of dynamic thermal computer modelling to such a large volume was groundbreaking, as the GMIT Library was one of the first of such applications in Ireland.
