MAKE POST-OCCUPANCY EVALUATION COMPULSORY - PROF ZUBAIRU

Prof. Zubairu who is the Acting Dean, School of Environmental Technology, Federal University of Technology, Minna, made this call yesterday when she delivered the 68th Inaugural Lecture of the University at the Caverton Lecture Theatre, Main Campus,

In the lecture titled: Post- Occupancy Evaluation: A necessary Tool for Architects, Facilities Managers and Other Professionals in the Building Industry, she explained hat such laws would help in assessing the impact and effectiveness of building spaces, structure and services on the end users, leading to better building performance.

Prof. Zubairu defined POE as systematic evaluation of opinions about buildings in use from the perspective of people who use them, adding that it is intended to compare systematically and vigorously, the actual performance of completed and occupied buildings with explicitly stated performance objectives.

Prof. Zubairu disclosed that studies have revealed that if users of public buildings are consulted at the initial design stage, better and more user-friendly designs will be produced. She, therefore, urged legislators to make a law that will make it mandatory for opinions of potential users to be sought before final decisions on designs of public buildings are made.

She enjoined building professionals to always be mindful of the fact that they are designing for the comfort and welfare of human beings.

As part of her contribution to knowledge, Prof. Zuabairu has carried out POEs on students’ hostels in FUT, Minna, hotels and more than two dozens of factories in Minna.

In his remarks, the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof. Abdullahi Bala, fsssn, thanked Prof. Zubairu for delivering the lecture. He described her as a woman who has paid her dues.

Mrs. Zubairu is the only female to have held the post of Dean, Postgraduate School in the University, a position to which she held from 2011 to 2014.
