Abstract

Purpose - This paper highlights the importance of considering user satisfaction in office renovation. The user-focused design approach is a way to increase user satisfaction and the value of office quality while meeting energy efficiency goal in nearly zero energy office (nZEO) renovation. The purpose of this paper is to investigate considerable measurement factors affecting the user satisfaction. It is also to help better understating about the user/occupants' preferences. Design/methodology/approach - Measurement factors are studied through the empirical literature related to user satisfaction at workspaces. The approach aims to give a guide for an analysis and evaluation of user satisfaction and for strengthening their importance in an office renovation. Findings - The findings present main measurement factors to increase user satisfaction. In theory, there are many terms about the measurement factors of user requirements and satisfaction. However, the comprehensive overview deals with essential factors regarding to nZEO renovation. These are not only associated with indoor environmental quality but also with psychological issues such as the feasibility of collaborative working, social contact, etc. Additionally, the conclusion synthesises the relationship between measurement factors and hierarchy of user requirements. Originality/value - The examination of user satisfaction at a workspace is not a new perspective. They are often likely to be considered by separate perspectives: indoor climate and health, and functionality and productivity. Nevertheless, user satisfaction in workspace needs to be examined by integrated perspectives between physical and psychological conditions. This paper provides the intangible insight regarding the user/occupants' values into building renovation.
