Design, Construction and Compliance

Incorporating innovative technologies in buildings often results in innovative adjustments to conventional building design, construction and operation. As a result of research and experimentation, CBE has compiled a series of design guidelines addressing parameters of UFAD systems that are relevant to decisions taken at a project's design stage; and highlighted a number of construction issues facilitating an efficient, cost-effective installation.

In addition, as with all new technologies, information is given regarding the special attention that should be paid to compliance with existing standards and codes regulating the building industry, such as those from ASHRAE relating to HVAC systems and applications.

This section of the UFAD website presents information relevant to the design phases, construction phases, relevant standards and codes, and additional background on task/ambient conditioning (TAC) systems.
