Course Description

In early 2020, a multidisciplinary team of SAGE members completed a post-occupancy evaluation (POE) of Menno Haven Rehabilitation Center --the first WELL-certified skilled nursing project in the world and one of Environments for Aging magazine’s 2019 Design Showcase winners--in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania to compare stated design goals against outcomes. Additionally, the POE measured how the building is functioning for both residents and staff. This research uses CITI protocols which ensures the highest level and rigor in research. Dive into the results of this POE as SAGE continues the tradition of helping providers and designers learn from winning projects.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand why aesthetics aren’t the only measure of successful design projects.
  • Learn how stated design goals translate into real-life operational and resident / guest experiences.
  • Hear from a team of multidisciplinary perspectives regarding how this building’s design features are working for the residents / guests and staff, and where it’s not.
  • Discover why the SAGE POE is a valuable tool for evaluating the design of a building in use.
