Aims and objectives

* To promote better specification, design and installation of ductwork.

* To work with other organisations such as B&ES, BSRIA, FETA and others to promote the interests of our members.

* To support higher standards among membership through education and information on the latest legislation and technical developments.

* To influence legislation such as Part L of the Building Regulations and others to ensure that ductwork is properly represented.


ADCAS was formed in 1997 by leading ductwork contractors who believed that the industry needed an independent voice and a specific identity. This proved  attractive to both contractors and many of the associated companies who supplied services and products to the sector.
