Sustainability

Post Occupancy Evaluations have documented reports of whole building lights coming on randomly in an unoccupied building, heating and cooling in the same space, at the same time and other unnecessary impacts on the environment.

Post Occupancy Evaluation can be useful to reduce material consumption, carbon emissions and other environmental impacts because application of lessons learned from previous buildings, reduces defects to repair.

Continuous improvement of buildings will produce better buildings and therefore it may also extend their life, thereby deferring the environmental impact of new construction.
