Medical professionals claim that improvements to the built environment of health facilities have positive effects on patient health outcomes and staff satisfaction. Despite extensive research, inadequate empirical evidence exists to support the benefit of renovation. The Department of Human Services, Victoria, Australia, needs assurance that investment in facility improvement is worthwhile. Through literature review, interviews, and focus groups, a methodology consisting of evaluation tools, surveys, and data organisation tools was developed and pilot tested for the collection of data from facilities targeted for replacement. A framework was established for follow-up studies to be performed in renovated facilities.
