The article discusses integrated design of the underfloor air-distribution (UFAD) systems to achieve their full potential. It states that proper implementation and construction of these systems can boost their potential of providing improved ventilation, thermal comfort and energy performance, and increased ease of reconfiguration. The article also offers the important factors in implementing and constructing the integrated design of UFAD.
