General Session Panel: Measuring Outcomes of Design: ASID HQ Living Laboratory Research

Intro: Jane Rohde, CHID, ACHA, AIA, FIIDA, LEED AP BD+C, Green Globes CIEB Assessor, Principal, JSR Associates, Inc

Presenter: Randy Fiser, CEO, ASID

Description: As we spend over 90 percent of our time indoors, our physical surroundings have a significant impact on our lives – how we live, work, play, learn, and heal. With work changing rapidly and consuming a substantial part of our lives, the physical workplace plays a critical role that can lead to outcomes such as, health, wellness, productivity, and engagement. These outcomes are not limited to just workplace design, but may have subsequent effects in other environments. Using ongoing post-occupancy research conducted at the ASID HQ living laboratory, explore the principles to creating healthy spaces, the protocols and culture needed to achieve wellness, and the measures for demonstrating the impact of design.

Learning Objectives:  

● Explain the impact design has on our lives

● Identify design principles/practices that promote health and wellness

● Review a two-year, ongoing case study using design and research to demonstrate outcomes of design

● Apply findings from research and design to various design sectors

Education: Introduction: Toni Wyre, Senior Associate, Polk Stanley Wilcox Architect

Speaker: Katie Herber, Sustainability Specialist at Perkins Eastman | Jana Silsby, Principal at Perkins Eastman

Description: Case Study Project: ASID & MLK Jr. School:  How does one know whether the design of a building has achieved its goals; what metrics and processes are necessary to ascertain project success; and how does a design firm develop a practice of evaluation to inform innovation? Join us for a discussion of how a new, comprehensive Pre- and Post-Occupancy Evaluation process is being developed for a design firm in order to collect and analyze qualitative and quantitative information that can demonstrate actual building performance. This process will be illustrated via a case study of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. School, a new PreK-8 school located in Cambridge, MA. The presenters will discuss the goals of the school, the process and design strategies implemented, and how the project success has been measured using a comprehensive Pre-OE/POE process including the collection of actual indoor environmental quality metrics and surveys of occupant perceptions.

Learning Objectives:

1. Define factors that create 21st century learning environment.

2. Learn how sustainable design strategies can be used to improve occupant comfort and performance in school environments.

3. Discover how a design firm is piloting a Pre-OE and POE process to develop protocols for research initiatives.

4. Understand how to evaluate the success of a design project using quantitative and qualitative metrics.
