BSRIA Occupant Wellbeing survey BOW
The BOW survey is a tool that helps assess occupant satisfaction and wellbeing in buildings, covering the building’s physical environment, indoor facilities, functionality and accessibility. It provides qualitative information that allows building owners and facilities managers to measure the impact of building services operation on occupant perception of wellbeing. The BOW survey can also be used as a tool to gather evidence to support BREEAM, Fitwel, WELL, LEED, and Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE) requirements.
The BOW survey can be conducted on-line or on-paper and supplemented with a forensic walkthrough of the building. The data is independently collected and analysed by BSRIA engineers, presenting findings within a collection of statistical results, charts, trends of factors and benchmarks.
