Post-occupancy evaluation (POE) examines the performance of a building in a comprehensive manner, addressing health, safety, security, and functionality, as well as social, psychological, and cultural appropriateness. POEs contribute to protect the public’s health, safety, and welfare as a continuous improvement tool for the built environment. This mini-monograph describes the steps and considerations required in the three phases of POE: planning, conducting, and applying. This course is part of a six-part series that explores the growing use of post-occupancy evaluations and their long-term significance in the design process. Each section can be taken as an individual course.
