The IT Division took occupancy of its new, green building in October 2015. The event was preceded by months of interventions aimed at preparing staff for the change, not only of location, but also of work style and culture. After the dust and the emotions had settled, we ran a post-occupancy survey in April of this year. The raw, aggregate results may be viewed here:

Post-occupancy ICT building survey report (pdf)

There are many interesting conclusions to be made, one of which is that although concerns over personal and storage space were vocally expressed before the move, the vast majority of staff is quite satisfied.

We intend to repeat the survey in future in order to “take the temperature” and track whether the operation of the building, as an integral part of our work system, is improving.

Construction on the IT Division’s new building commences early in 2014. In line with the goal of constructing and operating a “green” building, the IT Division has, along with the Facilities Management Division, ensured that the design incorporates the necessary for solar PV arrays on the roof and integration into the energy supply. IT has requested the Centre for Renewable and Sustainable Energy Studies (CRSES) to model solar power generation for the building and to calculate the financial pay back period.

The intention is that, based on the models, the IT Division will approach the Finance Division for a loan to incorporate solar energy generation into the building construction project.
