Event description

Description

Joint Built Environment Faculty presentations from University of Sydney and UCL.

Two approaches to post occupancy evaluation will be presented dealing with two different cultural and climatic built environments. Each survey is a well-established method that seeks to explain the connection between building performance and occupant satisfaction and performance.

Workspace design and workers' satisfaction, perceived productivity and health: results from the BOSSA project in Australi.

Christhina Candido: University of Sydney – Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning

The Building Occupants Survey System Australia – BOSSA – is an Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) assessment system. The database features over 8,000 occupant survey responses from Australian office workers and it underpins an ongoing program of research aimed at improving occupant's health, comfort and productivity. Results from the BOSSA tool are helping in understanding links between workspace design and workers' satisfaction, perceived productivity and health in Australia.

Comfort perceptions of occupants over time: longitudinal case study from the BUS survey.

Roderic Bunn: BSRIA & UCL – Faculty of the Built Environment, Institute of Environmental Design and Engineering

The BUS methodology is the original method of evaluating occupant satisfaction and has been developed over the last 30 years. It is an established, tried and tested way of benchmarking levels of occupant satisfaction within buildings against a large database of results for similar buildings. Results can be used to create solutions to improve the occupant experience and optimise building performance.
