Infrastructure Planning and Management in Higher Education Institutions

  • OECD
  • Higher Education in the 21st Century
  • Spatial and technological response
  • Post Occupancy Evaluation
organisation for economic co operation and development oecd
Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)

OECD membership

  • The OECD has 30 member countries.
  • More than 70 developing and transition economies are engaged in working relationships with the OECD.
  • OECD is committed to pursuing pro-active strategies towards OECD non-member participation.

OECD function

  • A forum in which governments work together to address the economic, social and environmental challenges of interdependence and globalisation.

OECD Programme on Educational Building (PEB)

PEB membership

  • 16 OECD Member countries and 12 associate members.

PEB function

  • Monitors and evaluates facilities policy.
  • Promotes and disseminates good practice in design and management of educational buildings.

PEB’s current activities: 2007-08 Programme of Work

  • Innovation in design to meet users’ needs.
  • Evaluation of procurement policy and practice for educational facilities.
  • School safety and security.

Some indications:

  • ICT is an enabler – place and time
  • “Globalisation” and / or “Regionalisation”
  • Funding: public to private
  • Relationships with industry
  • Student expectations, quality of life – a significant driver

spatial response
Spatial Response

Issues affecting spatial response

  • Consider flexibility
  • Physical flexibility
  • Technology - flexibility
  • Organisational flexibility
  • Balance of types of space
  • Timetabling
  • Better management
spatial response15
Spatial Response

Generic Space

  • Features:
  • Timetabled
  • Use by all
  • Constrained
  • Implications:
  • Manage timetable
  • Flexibility?
  • Expensive if mismanaged

spatial response16
Spatial Response


  • Features:
  • Specific functions
  • Timetabled
  • Formal
  • Specialised equip.
  • Implications:
  • Inflexible
  • Expensive
  • Manage timetable

spatial response17
Spatial Response


  • Features:
  • No timetable
  • Flexible
  • Use by anyone
  • Range of settings
  • Implications:
  • Hard to manage
  • Self-directed
  • Exchange space

managing the spatial response
Managing the Spatial Response
  • Design space around human interaction
  • Supporting change through a responsive environment
  • Underpinned by robust information
  • Key questions might be:
    • How much space?
    • How is it being used?
    • When?
    • What is the need?
    • How is it being managed?
post occupancy evaluation poe
Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE)

Provides feedback on:

Building performance and interaction with users


  • How users’ needs are changing
  • Building response – is it still appropriate

Post Occupancy Evaluation



Occupy / manage

Feed forwardExperience



Occupy / manage

post occupancy evaluation
Post Occupancy Evaluation
  • Performance:
  • How does the building support the client and user need? What needs to be changed?
  • Product:
  • How well does the fabric achieve its predefined specification? What can be improved?
  • Process:
  • (Delivery or operational process) How did the team perform? How can we manage it better?

Post Occupancy Evaluation

Post Occupancy Evaluation:

  • Should be integral to infrastructure planning and management
  • Informs management of space
  • Is a basis for responding to organisational change
  • Provides feedback for the ´Brief´

HE context

  • Long view

Patterns of learning?

Facilities response?

(How is space used?)

  • Study activities through time
  • Questionnaire survey
  • Workshop …
  • Questionnaire
  • Energy use / CO2 / water use
  • Condition survey
  • Study space through time

Strategic response?

  • Strategies to manage change
  • Speed of response?
  • Patterns of learning, research and innovation are evolving
  • Space and technologies must be supportive
  • Manage the spatial response through information analysis
  • Space makes a difference to effectiveness and costs money
