While occupants are emerging as a significant source of building performance uncertainty, they are largely neglected in the design process. Many lessons can be learned from occupants in existing buildings via occupant surveys, data collection and model development. Yet there are few precedents to improve future buildings. This seminar focuses on methods and case studies whereby occupants are a more central consideration for new building design and improving existing buildings operations. The scope ranges from fundamental research on incorporation of occupants into simulation-aided design to case studies and postoccupancy evaluations with occupant-centric controls.
