Post-occupancy evaluation (POE) examines the performance of a building in a comprehensive manner and can help architects understand and correct problems on recently completed projects and make better decisions in future projects. POEs contribute to protect the public’s health, safety, and welfare as a continuous improvement tool for the built environment. This mini-monograph introduces POE with a discussion on the history and benefits of POEs, as well as how the performance concept is used in conducting POEs. The three levels at which a POE may be undertaken are also addressed. 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.
