The report presents the research to date on user satisfaction as it relates to the social and physical environments of three dining facilities at Travis Air Force Base, California. Research Stage 1 consisted of the measurement of users attitudes and behaviors in the three existing dining environments. Data was collected from 296 questionnaires, 125 interviews, time-lapse photography, and trained observers. Research Stage 2, the development of renovation designs, utilized the resulting relationships by translating the information into designer-usable statements or hypotheses. Negative attitudes were linked to specific key stations of the existing facility. These attitude-key station hypotheses were the basis for the development of specific design intentions. Research Stage 3, will be a post-renovation evaluation. Modified author abstract
