Improving Building Performance Case Studies Part I: The Alfred Newton Richards Medical Laboratory Building

Format: CE Course
CE Info: 1.00 HSW LU
Contact Info: Customer Service (

While post-occupancy evaluations (POEs) can be used to measure the overall performance of a building in relation to its intended use, other building performance evaluation (BPE) methods can also be used over the lifetime of a building. This course presents a case study analysis of an existing building using a combination of several BPE methods, not limiting investigative analysis to only that of post-occupancy. The case study also outlines how performance evaluation and feedback relate to client goals, historic preservation, local building code, and environmental requirements. This course is part of a four-part series that reviews case studies on how to improve building performance. Each section can be taken as an individual course.
