ABOUT VIVID GREEN
Vivid Green is a family-run business established in May 2006. At Vivid Green, we design and construct spaces which have long term benefits for the environment and provide space which is easy and comfortable to live in. Our key aims are to provide high quality, environmentally responsible buildings that are value for money, along with top class service.
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.
But it doesn’t have to be this way – at the other extreme many buildings today are designed with little, if any heating or cooling, relying instead on high levels of insulation, airtight construction, South-facing windows, and ventilation systems with heat recovery.
Our challenge was to successfully apply these low impact, low energy principles to smaller structures, resulting in our core design principles:
- Create space for life: built to last, built for living
- Provide high levels of comfort – cool in Summer, warm in Winter with controllable ventilation
- Use materials, textures and colours which are tactile, textural, inspiring and involve 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. We are determined that each Vivid Green garden building, school building, annexe building or commercial development should offer long-term environmental benefits, using high levels of insulation and soundproofing, efficient ventilation, high quality materials and components, along with low maintenance products and finishes.
But we’re equally determined that it should also be easy, comfortable and inspirational to live in and with.
Green extensions, Space for life
All Vivid Green buildings are extremely affordable 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.
So 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.
We’ll be happy to help in any way we can
