Patterns of occupant behaviour, user and automated controls, window operation control strategies, Building Management System (BMS) features and settings in primary schools can be responsible for a performance gap and affect the conditions of indoor learning places. The post occupancy stages of the Soft Landings framework, while costly, can help identify the often unaccounted for factors relating to the access to controls, management and maintenance and the potential requirements for changes and adjustments. Sharing lessons learnt can prove a helpful guide for the future design of building systems of control strategies of PassivHaus (PH) primary school buildings.
