Caltrans (California Department of Transportation) planned its new headquarters to incorporate abundant natural light at staff workstations and an open office environment to increase collegiality and cooperation for work-teams. The behavioral post-occupancy study results show that staff whose workstations are in direct natural light were 15% more likelly satisfied with the facility overall and 19% more likely to report that their ability to work with a team had improved in the new building.
