TM62: Operational performance: Surveying occupant satisfaction is accompanied by three additional TMs dealing with various aspects of operational performance. These TMs are:
- TM61: Operational performance of buildings
- TM63: Operational performance: Building performance modelling and calibration for evaluation of energy in-use
- TM64: Operational performance: Indoor air quality — emissions sources and mitigation measures
All four publications are available as a set here.
Interest is growing in surveying occupants of non-domestic buildings. This popularity is largely due to concerns about the negative effects of enclosed spaces on human mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. This development has run parallel with building performance evaluation (BPE) and its close relative post-occupancy evaluation (POE). Occupant surveys are now established assessment methods to complement technical and quantitative forms of performance analysis.
