Abstract:

The report presents an evaluation of three different open-type interior office environments at the U. S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratory, Champaign, Ill. The Action office, the GSA Partition office, and the Open Plan office, all containing the same kinds of research activities, were evaluated with respect to cost-effectiveness.

Performance was measured indirectly througy the occupants attitudes about their offices. Cost-effectiveness was assessed by comparing the offices effectiveness ranks with their cost per occupant.
