Factors Show Satisfaction with Office Building Occupancy

It's interesting how we take for granted the functionality of a building.  It keeps us warm and dry, right?  Well, when you look closer, you discover that buildings are much more functional than weather shields.  Here is a list of "general satisfaction" factors for an office building survey that are worth considering when you evaluate a building's "value".

Buildings are functional spaces in which we function.  We work, play, enjoy, relate, learn, listen, build memories, and manage our moods.  With so much riding on a building's functionality not just as a temperate zone of comfort, it stands to reason that we need to look at the toxicity of materials, the amount of seating that encourages conversation, sunshine and views of nature and good ventilation that re-energizes our muscles and lungs.

That's a "system" that embodies green building, sustainable landscape, and social justice all rolled up into one community development strategy.
