Since moving offices in 2016, we have been carrying out an in-depth Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE) of the space we share with the Useful Simple Trust. Our colleagues at Useful Projects led the design and refurbishment of our new office, which achieved a SKA Gold rating.
The POE is part of our commitment to evaluating our work and developing innovative approaches to the integrated, intelligent and ethical provision of the built environment. We hope that collecting feedback from this project will inform and improve our future work. It is also an essential step in providing and maintaining a comfortable workplace which facilitates high quality work.
We are applying a range of qualitative and quantitative methods to understand how our space is performing environmentally, including questionnaire surveys and monitoring of internal environmental conditions temperature, CO2 levels and concentrations of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
POE is one of a number of sustainability and building assessments we offer. Please get in touch if you would like to hear more about our approaches and findings.
