Abstract

The project involved the team looking at post occupancy evaluation (POE) analysis from a number of perspectives. The team studied information relating to existing POE methods, current benchmarks to determine industry best practice and compare appropriate figures against Page & Park attainments, various existing questionnaires in order to devise a simple questionnaire that clients would regard as user-friendly, and the range of formats in which clients/companies receive energy data so that a meaningful POE process could be devised that would cope with a wide range of data. It was decided that the most effective way to deliver a simplified POE process, to complement the existing work practices of Page & Park, was to design and trial a software tool, named POET (for Post Occupancy Evaluation Tool). This tool was developed over the period of the project and underwent a number of revisions to deal with issues relating to compatability with Page & Park hardware, work practices and application expectations. A key deliverable of the project was to use POE as a method of guaging any difference between design intent and use in practice so that information could be fed back into future Page & Park projects. It was also crucial that the architects would be able to compare designs with best practice guidelines. The benchmark figures chosen for this project were extracted from CIBSE Benchmarks TM46 (2008).
