Vivid Green was established in May 2006, we design and construct spaces which have long-term benefits for the environment as well as providing space which is adaptable and fits your lifestyle.
Low energy, low-cost green garden buildings
Energy demand from buildings accounts for approximately 40% of the energy used in the UK, and yet many residential and commercial buildings are still constructed with minimal insulation, modest double glazing and inefficient heating systems. It doesn’t have to be this way.
These days, buildings can be designed with very little, if any, heating or cooling – relying instead on high levels of insulation, airtight construction, south-facing windows, and ventilation systems for heat recovery.
Our core design principles
Our challenge is to successfully apply these low impact, low energy and technically advanced methods to smaller structures.
- Create space for life – built to last, built for living
- Provide high levels of comfort – cool in summer, warm in winter with controllable ventilation
- Material usage with options for texture and colour which are tactile, contemporary, inspirational and offer a minimal waste
- Maximise use of passive solar gain plus shading in summer
- Provide high levels of thermal and noise insulation
These principles are at the heart of every building we design and construct – and is at the heart of every garden building, home extension, self-contained annexe or commercial development. Our garden buildings offer long-term environmental benefits, use high levels of insulation and soundproofing, efficient ventilation. We construct with high-quality materials and components, that are low maintenance products and look contemporary with modern finishes.
Green extensions, Space for life
All Vivid Green buildings are an extremely cost-effective way to build, heat and maintain and come with a 10-year warranty.
And whilst our materials and construction methods are better than the current housing standard, we use environmentally sound principles and materials to create low-impact, low-energy buildings with a minimum of waste.
Whether you’re looking for a building that will save you time, money, or a few tonnes of CO2, we’re here to provide a space not just to live in, but a space for life – and one that won’t cost the earth.
What sets us apart?
Erected and finished in just weeks, with most buildings not requiring planning permission, you can be in your garden room much sooner than you think.
