This paper provides a brief overview of the role of user perception in the development of Reid ventilation system for the Palace of Westminster. User-perception was used as a performance indicator in the day-to-day management of the ventilation, but also it was also a major design factor underlying the development of the ventilation system for the Permanent Houses of Commons.
