We help our clients document the social and economic impact of architecture.
With our documentation team, we collect effective knowledge from our own projects and external research. A knowledge that we translate into decision support in our many projects across scale and sector. Specifically, our documentation team contributes with analysis of construction program with focus on users' needs, knowledge collection with focus on filling the "knowledge gaps" in the construction program and last but not least, workshops focusing on the opportunities the team can work on developing.
We offer pre-measurement of existing buildings, so we create a 'baseline' for selected power measures, which we can ultimately compare the new building against.
The pre-measurement is carried out as part of the design of the new building. It is relevant to carry out a pre-measurement when you have a comparable before and after situation and the only major change is the new building. It could be the construction of a new school where the same children and staff have to move from the old school to the new school.
We offer post-measurement, so we can document how and whether a new building performs in relation to selected effect measurements.
The post-measurement is carried out when the building has been taken into use and life has taken place in the building. Often it will not have been possible to carry out a pre-measurement, and in those cases the post-measurement will be the only measurement that is carried out and can here provide answers to how the architecture concretely supports the selected effect measures. It is also called a Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE).
