CIBSE Post Occupancy Review of Building Engineering (PROBE) Studies

These case studies from CIBSE provides the Post Occupancy Review of Building Engineering (PROBE) Studies, which describe practical evaluation studies on a number of buildings.

Work undertaken by the CIBSE over many years has shown that Post Occupancy Evaluation of buildings is a proven tool for delivering better building performance and value for money.

PROBE was a research project which ran from 1995-2002 under the Partners in Innovation scheme (jointly funded by the UK Government and The Builder Group, publishers of Building Services Journal - now the CIBSE Journal). It was carried out by Energy for Sustainable Development, William Bordass Associates, Building Use Studies and Target Energy Services.

The Probe Studies provide an invaluable resource for anyone wanting to better understand some of the successes and potential pitfalls of a number of high profile buildings, including whether the designs ultimately resulted in good energy and thermal performance. Whilst over 10 years old, the studies are still an excellent reference source for design engineers, architects, contractors and building operators who want to learn from the past to ensure better building performance.
