Measuring success: Conducting rigorous post-occupancy evaluations`

Elliot Felix
Founder & CEO

Colleges and universities are evolving to be more data-driven, architects and engineers are embracing lean design, and sustainable, high-performance buildings are gaining prominence. Post-occupancy evaluations (POEs) are needed now more than ever to evaluate the effects on project outcomes, but most institutions lack the key components: a consistent, rigorous methodology for conducting POEs, baseline data for comparison, benchmark data for context, and the culture of assessment and continuous improvement. Drawing from a variety of case studies from brightspot POEs, Elliot Felix offers an overview of assessment and analysis methods, a flexible process and principles any institution can adopt, and advice on implementation learned the hard way.
