Abstract

This paper presents two tools for evaluation of the indoor environment in social housing, developed as part of the REBUS project. The main aim of the paper is to present the tool, a questionnaire for evaluation of tenants’ perceived problems and satisfaction with the indoor environment. Based on the experience gained from a previous study that applied a similar questionnaire, a procedure for evaluation of the perceived indoor environment in social housing before and after a renovation work is proposed. The procedure includes a questionnaire and a distribution procedure of the questionnaire to the tenants to ensure the highest possible response rate. The questionnaire is intended to be used before the renovation work to identify the initially most pronounced indoor environment problems, thus allowing for a targeted problem solving adding the most value for the tenants. After the renovation work the questionnaire may be applied to document whether the defined goals for the indoor environment have been reached. The usefulness as well as some challenges in applying a questionnaire is exemplified by the results of an evaluation of the perceived indoor environment of a renovated social housing settlement.
