Implementation Of Post-Occupancy Evaluation: A Potential Tool For Building Asset Management And Creating More Productive, Cost-Effective And Sustainable Buildings At MSU
Source: Michigan State University
Post-Occupancy Evaluation (POE) refers to the evaluation of a completed constructed facility during its occupancy. A structured systematic POE process can answer several significant questions including: is the constructed building facility functioning as planned? If not, what corrective measures are necessary? And, how can buildings are better constructed in the future? This paper provides background on POE, including its origin, its processes and also helps to identify possible benefits of implementing a POE protocol at Michigan State University. POE measures can have application in new buildings and renovations as well in the evaluation of existing facilities.
