  • Abstract:
    The indoor environmental quality (IEQ) in commercial office buildings involves numerous parameters that are critical to improving occupant performance in workplaces. This paper presents an overview of the key research findings pertinent to understanding the connection between indoor environmental quality and occupants' perception of and performance in commercial office buildings. The current emphasis on facilities evaluation of indoor environmental quality characteristics and impacts on occupants' perceptions of indoor environment and performance in workplaces is discussed. The paper further discusses an on-going research project in Australia in which a facilities performance evaluation mechanism is used to measure the impact of environmentally sustainable design features on IEQ and occupant perception of commercial office buildings.
