A Method for Collecting User Based Facility Requirements


User participation is an effective means of creating office space planning standards. This paper describes a validated trade-off method for surveying user needs and converting the results into a set of standards for designers' use. A case study describes the use of this technique in the renovation of a state office building interior. Tables and charts illustrate trade-offs made by staff in developing a new set of standards for their space.
