Abstract: Given the increase in interest to understand human comfort, this paper aims to assess the impact of the optimizing thermal strategies, lighting strategies, acoustic conditions and Indoor Air Quality conditions to understand overall occupant satisfaction in school canteens. This assessment will involve comparison of differences in occupant satisfaction as theorized and in reality which seeks to analyse the behaviour of occupants. Data will be gathered through instrumentation and questionnaires administered to canteen users. The research seeks to assess the relative importance of parameters in predicting comfort which acts as a stepping stone to design criteria for future canteen planning and management. This study is significant because it takes into account a range of factors that affects the user satisfaction of comfort and the behavioural aspects of canteen users. It contributes to the existing body of knowledge which lacks in academic literature. The findings are of a greater value to the field of facility management (FM) and planning as it justifies the confidence in using post-occupancy evaluation to predict comfort performance in general, as proven achievable under the canteen context. This framework is also highly significant as buildings get more complex as seen from the rising sustainable innovations and concepts such as green buildings.
