Extract

Abstract: The aim of the paper is to report the outcomes of a POE study of Lark Quarry Trackways
Building and Shelter, Winton, Queensland. The project is of interest due to its design process, remote
location and desert climate. The research approach uses a number of post occupancy methods,
including a green design benchmarking tool and stakeholder feedback, combined with an
environmental monitoring program over a period of one year. The outcomes of the research are
recommendations for improving the climate responsiveness of the building, in particular to address
overheating, and arguments for the adoption of new POE methods for evaluating buildings in remote
areas.
