Abstract:

This report defines habitability and identifies documents concerning habitability in the context of the facility delivery process of the Corps of Engineers. This process is described as a cycle of events including master planning, construction programming, project development, design, and construction. Occupant needs for health, safety, performance, and satisfaction, and goals and objectives for occupant needs are conceptualized. Habitability requirements for occupant needs are conceptualized and operationally defined. It is concluded that occupant needs and habitability requirements statements are necessary links in the generation of habitability criteria for the facility delivery process.
