E41 - Effective Site Visits: More Than A Road Trip

Conducting site visits and facility tours has become a routine part of programming and pre-design activities as facilities and designers wish to learn what designs have or have not worked. Often these site visits are under-planned, causing participants to walk away without a clear sense of what they have learned. Site visits should be considered a form of post-occupancy evaluation, following a rigorous format for data collection. This session describes an easy way to implement a format for conducting successful pre-design site visits or post-occupancy evaluations. Participants will leave knowing the right questions to be be asked and skills to be developed, such as active watching and experiential viewing.
