Post Project Review Guidelines

The aim of the PPR is to ensure that buildings are performing as intended and that lessons learnt throughout the project lifecycle are documented so that learning can be applied to future UCL projects

UCL is committed to undertaking a Post Project Review (PPR) on all registered projects.

The scope of the PPR will vary based on project value, scope, scale and criticality.

For all projects, the PPR will include a Project Implementation Review (PIR) to evaluate how effectively the process of conceptualising and delivering the project was carried out. This exercise shall be managed by the University Project Officer (UPO) and will consist of capturing feedback from the design/construction team and relevant UCL staff, as well as undertaking structured lessons learnt workshop(s) when agreed it is important.

For building projects that are large or business critical, the PPR may also subject to a full Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE) in addition to the PIR requirements. The POE should be led by an independent POE consultant and will consist of a functional evaluation of the building in the form of user surveys, as well as technical evaluation of the building in-use (e.g. energy performance evaluation, site audits etc).
