Abstract: Do green-certified schools live up to their rating and perform at a higher environmental level than other typical schools? Does the green branding of a school have any influence on the perception of the users in the way they think and use the building? In this study, qualitative and quantitative post occupancy evaluations of two schools are carried out to investigate these questions, and the scope is confined to the assessment of green schools in Singapore. The selected green school is assessed fonts environmental performances, and its electricity and water consumptions are compared to another standard school. Occupant surveys and photographic walkthroughs were also carried out, to find out if the environmental image of the school has any influence on aspects of user perceptions and awareness. This study identified that the green credential of the school does affect the perceptions of the users, and the building does have a better environmental performance in certain areas.
