At HKS, we believe that every key design decision is a performance hypothesis, and we are committed to testing the success of our designs after occupancy. As part of this ongoing commitment, HKS has developed a Post-Occupancy tool, a Functional Performance Evaluation (FPE) focused on evaluating the current operations in the overall facility, and in its individual departments, after the facility has been in full operation for at least one year. I walk through the key findings from the 13 FPEs conducted by HKS over the past decade and talk about what is coming next for the FPE process.
