The objective of the study described in this report is to identify barriers restricting the implementation of natural or simple fan assisted ventilation systems in the design of new office type buildings and in the refurbishment of existing such buildings. The perceived barriers are identified in an in-depth study with structured interviews based on questionnaires among leading designers and decision makers. The interviews have focused on general knowledge, viewpoints, experience and perceived problems with natural ventilation in office type buildings and on the decisions actually taken in specific building projects.
