Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ)
4.00 IEQ Satisfaction Score for Offices
This score indicates the users’ mean satisfaction with the indoor environmental quality in the building’s primary spaces. It is expressed on a Likert-type scale from 1 (very dissatisfied) to 7 (very satisfied). The score is derived from the results of the Sustainable Post-Occupancy Evaluation Survey (SPOES) by averaging the score from each of the IEQ categories in order to fairly represent overall satisfaction with the physical environment.
IEQ Categories for Offices
The table below shows the mean satisfaction score for each IEQ category.

This building hosts a library, classrooms, office space, and storage. The office space is comprised of private offices, shared enclosed offices, workstations, and open desk areas, along with a workshop and employee support areas. This case study shows results from a survey of employees regarding the indoor environmental quality of their primary workspace.
Reports
The Sustainable Post-Occupancy Evaluation Survey (SPOES) is a self-administered, Internet-based questionnaire developed to assess human outcomes in indoor settings. The survey was completed by the user group of the primary space and analyzed by the B3 Post-Occupancy Evaluation team. The SPOES reports document user satisfaction with the physical environment as related to various indoor environment quality criteria, such as lighting, thermal, and acoustic conditions.

See the B3 Post-Occupancy Evaluation website for more information.
