About Us

Breathing Buildings is the UK’s leading provider of controlled hybrid ventilation systems – ones which use natural ventilation when possible, but have low energy fans to provide draught mitigation in winter and boost ventilation in summer.

Our range of patented e-stack® and NVHR® products have fundamentally changed how the UK construction industry thinks about low-energy ventilation.

Founded in 2006 with the goal of bringing the newly-developed mixing ventilation concept to the wider market, Breathing Buildings has grown from strength to strength.

As of December 2016, Breathing Buildings has joined with Volution Group plc to enhance product development and growth throughout the commercial construction market.
