The number of Underfloor air systems (UFAD) has incresed 40 % between 1995 and 2002, thanks to the benefits it offers : lower churn costs, improved IAQ, lower energy costs, potential to reduce floor-to-ceiling heights. But knowledge of how to apply the technology is not widespread.

Design phases, construction and commissioning phases of the UFAD project are presented along with a paragraph on the importance of educating building occupants on UFAD.
