What is Underfloor Air Conditioning?
Less Waste. A Better Space.
Underfloor air conditioning uses the space beneath a raised access floor for the distribution of air.
Watch our short video to see how it works.
By involving AET at the design stage of the projects and working with its innovative underfloor air conditioning system, we were able to significantly reduce the construction costs at the same time as maintaining the most flexible offering for our potential tenants.
Nigel Brooks, Director at Kestrel Court Managed Workspace
We’re very pleased with the end result at 180 Great Portland Street. The building refurbishment won a BCO Innovations Award for its innovative solutions and it’s fair to say that the floor based air conditioning system played an essential part.

AET’s Flexible Space was the system of first choice for this project… It meets not only the flexibility demanded for modern city work space but also satisfies many sustainability and energy demands imposed by legislation and socially responsible corporations
Stuart Lyell, Managing Director, Allied London
A system was needed that could be adapted to change with minimum time, cost and disruption to the client and occupants. In addition capital and running costs were important considerations.
The user of the building is very satisfied both with Indoor Air Quality and Flexibility
Goran Osterberg, ABB Flakt Oy
…this has been my wisest business decision to work with AET and your system. During summer it was working perfectly and hope that nothing will change next winter. I really appreciate the ease of care of the system so I can save a lot of money for my service works and our tenant loves it as well. I will definitely take this for my new project…
Klavs Vasks, CEO, Mukusalis Buznesa Centrs
We confirm that we consider there are a number of financial advantages to a tenant moving into this building, when compared with a “normal” building which incorporates suspended ceilings, ceiling lighting system and VAV system and raised floors.
JR Green, Quantity Surveyor, Baker Wilkins Smith
We recognise that different businesses with different needs are likely to come and go or change their business space requirements over the lifetime of this development. AET’s Flexible Space System is a versatile solution, which will deliver a high standard of flexibility, comfort and air quality with the use of modular components.
Bernard Davern, Bovis Lend Lease
AET Flexible Space is installed in over 300 projects worldwide including some notable, award winning developments.

Prior to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, companies with a flexible working policy were relatively rare. But as 2020 has shown us, many businesses have been forced to become more agile, more flexible – not just how they work, but where their people work. Flexible working used to be seen as a benefit for employees, but […]
At AET, we welcomed 2021 with cautious optimism, as the construction industry seems to have proven itself fairly resilient against the twin challenges of COVID-19 and Brexit. Happily, the 2021 lockdown has proven to be far less disruptive to the construction industry than the first lockdown, and we have been able to continue working to […]
I recently read a thought-provoking article by Nuveen Real Estate titled “The Office Is Dead. Long Live The Office” which outlined four key outcomes the pandemic will have on the workspace once life returns to the office. The most poignant outcome, in my opinion, refers to the demand for supplementary flexible space and the need […]
