Hypocaust systems, where conditioned or non-conditioned air is passed through ducts within the concrete floor or ceiling of a building prior to its delivery to the rooms, are starting to appear in new buildings in Australia.
This paper describes the lessons that can be learned from the early experiences with a hypocaust system, installed in a new building in Melbourne. It concludes that a more cooperative process between all those involved in introducing and using a new 'technology' is essential if the problems described are to be avoided or at least minimized.
