Second-Level Post-Occupancy Evaluation Analysis
Post-occupancy evaluations (POE) have been used by a number of researchers (Harris, 1987; Rubin and Collins, 1988; Markus 1967) as a tool for documenting, evaluating, and improving environmental conditions in offices. In a project sponsored by the US Department of Energy and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority during 1984-1986 POE data were collected on lighting power densities, photometric levels, and user attitudes for 912 workstations in 13 office buildings that contained lighting systems somewhat typical of current lighting practice. The purpose of the present evaluation is to examine the relationships between individual lighting system type and these data. Earlier analyses and documentation can be found in Gillette and Brown (1986), Gillette and Brown (1987), Marans (1987), Marans and Brown (1987), and Gillette (1988).
