This section of the book establishes the definition of adaptation in the context of this publication. It reviews and synthesises the relevant literature, while progressively developing the research questions, hypotheses and the conceptual model towards a knowledge-based approach to sustainable office adaptation. It describes and substantiates latest research demonstrating how to make a preliminary assessment of adaptation potential using Melbourne as an illustrative case study. Further examples demonstrating how the process can be applied to US, Canadian and UK buildings is provided here. The relevance of Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE) to adaptation is explained and contextualised in this section.
