Speaker: Sean O’Donnell FAIA, LEED AP
How does one know whether the design of a building has achieved its goals; what metrics and processes are necessary to ascertain project success; and how does a design firm develop a practice of evaluation to inform innovation? Join us for a discussion of how a new, comprehensive Pre- and Post-Occupancy Evaluation process is being developed for a design firm in order to collect and analyze qualitative and quantitative information that can demonstrate actual building performance. This process will be illustrated via a case study of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. School, a new PreK-8 school located in Cambridge, MA. The presenters will discuss the goals of the school, the process and design strategies implemented, and how the project success has been measured using a comprehensive Pre-OE/POE process including the collection of actual indoor environmental quality metrics and surveys of occupant perceptions.
- Define factors that create a 21st century learning healthy environment.
- Learn how sustainable design strategies can be used to improve occupant comfort and performance in school environments.
- Discover how a design firm is piloting a Pre-OE and POE process to develop environmental protocols for research initiatives.
- Understand how to evaluate the success of a design project using quantitative and qualitative data including indoor environmental quality metrics.
