Integrated collaborative facilities management framework for post occupancy evaluation of higher education facilities

"Olatunji Abisuga’s research, under the supervision of Dr Changxin Wang and Dr Riza Yosia Sunindijo, focuses on collaborative facilities management (FM) practice.

The proposed thesis is ‘Integrated collaborative facilities management framework for post occupancy evaluation of higher education facilities’, and the studies are designed to be paramount to the sustenance of constructed facilities by both the users and facility managers. 

Abisuga specifically hopes to advance post occupancy evaluation (POE) protocol of higher education facilities through the application of a mobile based POE decision support system, institutional rules and regulations, and stakeholder responsibilities. The outcomes will improve FM practice, FM-users relationship, facilities performance and users' satisfaction."
