To allow occupants to provide feedback to building owners and management, and help further develop the WELL Building Standard.
Given the diversity of built environments, it is difficult to prescribe a comprehensive set of features that are effective across all settings. Occupancy surveys can be useful in measuring the extent to which a building is effectively promoting and protecting the health and comfort needs of its occupants. In addition, the ability to offer feedback and have a recognized stake in one’s comfort and well-being can have a positive impact on occupant mood.
In buildings with 10 or more occupants, the Occupant Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) Survey™ from the Center for the Built Environment at UC Berkeley (or approved alternative) is completed by a representative sample of at least 30% of occupants at least once per year. The survey covers the following topics of occupant satisfaction:
Thermal comfort, including humidity and air flow, at least twice a year (once during the cooling season and once during the heating season).
Workspace light levels and quality.
Odors, stuffiness and other air quality concerns.
Cleanliness and maintenance.
