US COAST GUARD HEADQUARTERS
The University of Maryland conducted a post-occupancy evaluation of the USCG Headquarters building for the General Services Administration and Landscape Architecture Foundation. The researchers assessed the impact of the project’s 12-acres of green roof on stormwater management and the urban heat island, and evaluated the use of the social spaces throughout the seasons. Andropogon is currently conducting a study of the project’s maintenance regimes and changes in biodiversity over time.
Andropogon - working with Meliora, Davis Langdon, and the Center for the Built Environment - developed a post-occupancy evaluation study of the Kresge Foundation Complex. This study assessed the site’s performance while also evaluating the appropriateness of key evaluation metrics. The team conducted a life-cycle analysis, operational costs investigation, and analysis of human factors such as indoor water, stormwater, landscape water use, biodiversity, acoustics, lighting, indoor air quality, thermal comfort, and energy performance.
INTRODUCTION TO LANDSCAPE PERFORMANCE & METRICS
At North Carolina State University, Andropogon’s Emily McCoy teaches a graduate-level course that introduces the concepts of landscape performance and metrics. This page will offer a crash-course on the subject.
