Ventive Limited is a pioneer in the design of naturally intelligent ventilation systems to deliver fresh air at minimal energy cost. Tom Lipinski founded the company with the vision that ventilation can play a key role in the sustainable architecture of the future. Almost all of the air we breathe, within the built environment, can be introduced comfortably without the need for further power, heating or cooling. He quickly developed a sophisticated form of natural ventilation to reduce the reliance on costly, energy-hungry mechanical ventilation systems.
Working with top UK university researchers from Imperial, UCL, and Brunel, Ventive filed for patent in 2013 on a technique known as passive ventilation with heat recovery. Initially designed for the home refurbishment market, the products enjoyed early success before being further developed in the past five years into a range of new products designed for schools, libraries, offices, and homes.
Located in Isleworth, London the team continues to collaborate with top researchers and publishes academic papers that expand the knowledge base within this area on a regular basis.
Ventive has already won numerous awards for its innovation and commitment to sustainable architecture including the Best Startup at the Lloyds TSB Enterprise Awards and more than 20 sustainability, retrofit and innovation awards, including: Air Movement Product of the Year (Heating & Ventilation News 2016); Best Innovation in Energy Management; Best Sustainable Innovation Award (CIOB); Best Retrofit Innovation (Retrofit Awards); Best Retrofit Project; Best Sustainable Building (Sustainable City Awards); Best Carbon Reduction Project (EDIE) and the 2011 Inventor of the Year (Autodesk).
