AbstractAs part of the Cost-effective Open-Plan Environments (COPE) project, we conducted a field study to investigate how the open-plan office environment influenced occupant satisfaction. Physical and questionnaire data were collected simultaneously from 779 open-plan office workers and their workstations. Hierarchical regression analyses, controlling for age, gender and job status, indicated that ?satisfaction with ventilation' (a 3-item sub-scale assessing satisfaction with air quality, temperature and air movement) was influenced by workstation partition (panel) height, the presence of a window, air velocity, air temperature, and carbon dioxide concentration.
