FlaktGroup Mike Hayes
The UK serviced office model is expected to grow from £16bn in 2017 to £62bn in 2025. Space is at a premium, and with multiple occupants sharing one building, flexibility is required. Mike Hayes, applications specialist at FläktGroup, explains why facilities managers should consider Underfloor Air Conditioning (UFAC) for this reason.
Demand is growing exponentially for serviced offices and co-working spaces across the country, both for fast growing SMEs and increasingly also for larger and more established companies. In central London alone, flexible workplace providers have taken over 21% of office space in 2017, while competition in the regional cities is intensifying.
Co-working minimises exposure to long-term leases and offers businesses room to grow and downsize if required. To deliver this flexibility, a building’s operations - of which heating and cooling is a crucial element – must also be able to adapt quickly to changes in tenants’ needs.
Combined with shifts in workplace culture, the modern flexible office
presents a range of challenges when it comes to specifying the right heating and cooling system.
Open all hours
In a traditional nine-to-five office environment, space heating and cooling requirements are at their peak during the weekdays when most staff are present. However, people are increasingly working at different times of the day and night. So gone are the days when office temperatures are fixed at a set level across the building at specific times. Today, heating and cooling need to respond to changing functions at different times of the day to maintain a comfortable temperature for occupants. At the same time, it must be easy to install, maintain and reconfigure to suit any future modifications to a building’s layout without taking up valuable lettable space.
Fortunately, advances in modern cooling technology means that there are many different options for specifiers and building managers to choose from. Conventional air conditioning systems include chilled water or direct expansion wall mounted units or ceiling cassettes. However, these solutions can take up valuable floor space, or require a large suspended ceiling void and can only provide localised cooling and heating.
For buildings that need to be flexible enough to accommodate changes in design and usage, Under-Floor Air Conditioning systems (UFAC), such as FläktGroup’s OfficeCool, can provide the answer.
UFAC solutions work by installing discreet local zone units to areas of between 50 m2 and 300 m², using the raised floor void as an air distribution plenum to distribute the conditioned air.
The Local Environmental Control Units (LECU) which are sited within the raised floor void, can then each be controlled as required by the occupants to adjust the temperature and control the release of conditioned air into their particular area of the office. The LECU will also continuously circulate room air and can even provide local heating should this be required.
Efficiency and flexibility
Because there is no need for a ceiling-based duct and pipe work, UFAC systems can offer huge savings in construction materials, installation costs, fit out and reconfiguration costs. If an ornate ceiling is to remain exposed for all to see, this is the system to suit.
The LECU is dimensioned to fit a 600 x 600mm floor tile exactly without the use of stringers. This means that the technology can be easily moved without special tools when the office space has to be redesigned. Since their own power and data rails run in the modular raised floor, the electrical systems can also be relocated quickly. In fact, all service connections in the floor cavity are easily accessible for maintenance purposes, and all risks associated with personnel working at height are removed.
A UFAC system can also offer energy savings too. This is because air velocities are kept very low, with very generously sized heat exchangers. Conditioned air flows in the same direction as thermal lift, not against it, supplying the highest volume of fresh air into the occupied zone. The air stratifies in the office, which means that the high air temperature, at high level, returns to the downflow air handling unit (AHU), further improving energy efficiency.
One step ahead
With the popularity of co-working set to increase, specifiers and building managers need to deliver flexible building services without compromising on space, occupant comfort or energy efficiency. Underfloor air conditioning systems ticks all the boxes and can help managers to stay one step ahead in a fast-evolving commercial property market.

FlaktGroup - Chilled Beam
Recent research suggests that energy use for cooling will overtake the demand for heating by 2050. To avoid increasing costs, facilities managers should turn to high efficiency cooling and ventilation systems. Chris Jones, product manager at FläktGroup, highlights the solutions available.
“With populations increasing, expanding urbanisation and climate change impacts leading to more frequent heatwaves and temperature rises, the demand for more cooling will increase in the decades ahead. In fact, energy use for air conditioning, refrigeration and other cooling appliances will increase by 90 per cent compared to last year.
“As a result, reducing the energy required for cooling should be a high priority for facilities managers. It’s key for them to adopt high efficiency cooling technologies and set up a regular service and maintenance schedule to deliver optimum performance. With such strict targets on our carbon emissions, it’s equally vital for high efficiency cooling solutions that also combine ventilation to be installed.
“One key solution is chilled beam technology. This can provide energy efficient air comfort, ventilation and high indoor air quality in a wide range of commercial buildings, including offices, hotels, healthcare facilities and educational institutions.
“Chilled beams are incredibly energy efficient, offering savings of up to 40 per cent over traditional air conditioning systems. Chilled water temperatures in chilled beams operate at higher water temperatures than fan coil systems; for example, 14°C flow compared to 6°C respectively. This means the chiller used to create the chilled water will perform more efficiently for a chilled beam than for a fan coil, because the lower the chilled water temperature, the higher the energy use. Chiller energy consumption for chilled beam systems offers energy savings of around 35 per cent.
“Today, chilled beams not only deliver a comfortable environment, high indoor air quality, minimum energy consumption and ease of installation and maintenance – they are also highly flexible and can be easily adapted to suit any future modifications of a building’s layout. Global warming remains a big concern, and technology such as chilled beams are set to grow as a core consideration for the industry.”
