Whitley Mfg. Student Intern Wins MBI Competition

Tyler Stanley Wins Award of Distinction for his Green Building Design.

Tyler Stanley is a senior at Ball State University\'s School of Architecture. Winning first place means Stanley will receive a $2500 scholarship while Ball State will receive a $5000 grant. Honorable mention goes to Derick Lee, a student at California Polytechnic State University. Both students will receive crystal trophies and formal recognition at World of Modular, March 28-31, 2009 at Red Rock Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. You can view the first place and honorable mention entries online.

Architecture and engineering students at four-year colleges or universities may participate in the competition by submitting designs for modular buildings that meet eight specific criteria: thermal comfort, indoor air quality, daylighting, acoustics, energy efficiency, resource strategy, architectural excellence, and economic practicality. The 2009 competition included a real-world client, Piedmont Housing Alliance. PHA is working to improve The Meadows, a senior community located in Crozet, Virginia. The Meadows provides low income housing and is in need of a new community center. Each participating student designed a community center utilizing modular construction and having sustainable features, including the ability to attain LEED certification.

Kobet, AIA, LEED AP, president, Sustainaissance International, Inc.; Peter Doo, AIA, LEED AP, president, Baltimore Chapter, American Institute of Architects; Ralph Tavares, PE & Silvana Tavares, AIA, principals, R&S Tavares Associates, Inc.; James Guthrie, AIA, president, Jobsite Mobile Offices; and Stu Armstrong, executive director, Piedmont Housing Alliance. Tyler Stanley\'s name may be familiar. He received the 2008 MBI Educational Foundation\'s member scholarship.

Tyler is currently employed as a student intern with Whitley Manufacturing in South Whitley, Indiana. After graduation, he plans to pursue a masters in architecture and stay involved in our industry.
