Abstract

The improvement of existing buildings had been argued to be a major approach in attaining sustainability in the built environment, especially in developing countries. However, literature review had shown that users’ requirement, which is the basis of accomplishing sustainable improvement were hardly met in improved buildings. The paper thus approached the sustainable improvement diagnosis technique of public office buildings through the enhancement of users’ requirement assessment using the lean thinking concept, which emphasized improvement from end-users’ perspective. The research adopted the quantitative method, using diagnostic Post Occupancy Evaluation as data acquiring tool from a massive office complex in Nigeria. The research concluded that lean thinking can enhance the assessment of users’ requirement in existing public office building improvement diagnosis in developing countries, however, the approach can only be used as a supplement and not a replacement of the diagnosis technique, since the end-users are not able to provide the technical details of professional expertise and equipment needed in a typical improvement diagnosis technique.
