The Erskine Building, Canterbury University, Christchurch – A Case Study of Building Performance

George Baird

George Baird, author of Sustainable Buildings in Practice – What the Users Think, presents a post-occupancy evaluation of Canterbury University’s Erskine Building.

Baird’s case study identifies lessons that can be applied to contemporary projects, including the use of user manuals to ensure optimal building performance.
