Abstract

Services which make use of low-cost pervasive sensor systems have the potential to support evidence-based management, decision support, service provisioning and sustainable policy design in non-domestic buildings. My research aims to understand the sociotechnical factors in the investigation of such systems through deployment case-studies with facilities managers, office workers, and students. I provide recommendations for the design of repurposeable, redeployable and retrofittable sensor toolkits for understanding conditions within the local built environment, utilising that understanding in digital services to provide new perspectives on environmental complaints (e.g. thermal comfort), and creating policy recommendations towards the sustainable management of building infrastructure.
