Assessing the performance of offices of the future

WithRotraut Walden

Editorial comment The building performance evaluation questionnaire is often equated with post-occupancy evaluation (POE) in the conceptual framework for building performance evaluation (BPE) (Preiser and Schramm, 1997). How an evaluation of this kind can best be carried out, and the way in which it can be enhanced through detailed user-needs analysis (UNA) is the subject of this chapter. User needs analysis calculates the gap between the condition of a building at the present time and future demands on it.
