The aim of this study was to evaluate the post occupancy performance of a typical ‘traditional’ building using multiple Post Occupation Evaluation (PoE) protocols against design intents to learn lessons about their suitability in meeting UK’s climate change reduction targets. The research study demonstrates that very high levels of energy saving can be achieved when traditional buildings are refurbished. In addition on-going monitoring and PoE studies highlight opportunities to optimise the performance of traditional buildings.
