Workspace Design II: Development of a new design practice in engineering consultancies and architectural firms

    Description

    The objective is to develop and test methods and tools for a new dialogue oriented design practice in architectural firms and engineering consultancies aimed at involving users and occupational health and safety considerations in the early design stages.
    Case studies are accomplished in collaboration with an architectural firm and an engineering consultancy. A single case study includes intervention in an ongoing engineering project. Other case studies include a systematic evaluation of completed design projects.
    The project outcome includes a handbook for architects and engineers. The handbook is developed in an iterative prototyping process with professionals from architectural firms, engineering consultancies, and occupational health and safety consultants.
