KTP: Evidence-Based Design for Healthy & Habitable Workspaces
The project aims to integrate the needs of building users for healthy, habitable and productive workspaces into the early procurement and design stages of a construction or refurbishment project. Through novel evidence-based design methods, Feed it Forward adapts building performance evaluation to systematically consider the social and organisational implications of design and engineering choices. The outcome is an effective and efficient feedback framework, useful for analysing the unique needs of clients as well as providing vital building performance feedback for industry partners. The Knowledge Transfer Partnership project condenses and interprets end user needs and preferences into evidence-based research and design strategies in order to generate great designs and establish a framework for building performance feedback to industry partners. The “Feed it Forward” approach scrutinises organisational needs and user preferences in workspaces, thus bringing sociological insight into an area dominated by physical building data. Findings are then incorporated into early stage design processes for new or refurbished construction, and are also used in the creation of a viable building performance database for the industry. The objectives of the Feed it Forward framework include: · Effective facilitation of customized design outcomes for diverse organizational needs · Enhanced communication and accountability between industry partners · Systematic measurement of building design impacts on the functional efficacy of the built environment Objectives are achieved by introducing evidence-based design methodologies in the form of a user-friendly industry "toolkit". The kit will provide novel, effective and rapid feedback tools, which can be implemented in pre and post-occupancy evaluation that is cost-effective and provides industry partners with enhanced insights into the impacts of customised design solutions for clients.
