Abstract – Tuhinga Whakarāpopoto

This report provides an overview of the application of Post-Occupancy Evaluation at the neighbourhood scale, focusing on environmental performance and liveability. Post-Occupancy Evaluation is a useful way of confirming the actual performance of the built environment. The researchers present the main international and national methodologies and examples. Existing assessment and certification schemes for neighbourhoods are presented and compared. At the end of this report, a framework for the selected case study of Hobsonville Point is proposed, including a questionnaire for residents.
