Harry Cursham launched the initial products in 2016. As an expert in historic building conservation and born from his 30 years of historic research, observation, experimentation, practical use and thorough testing, he feels sure that the Vivus Solution delivers the highest quality of finish, effective insulation, improved humidity control and without any negative impact on associated parameters.
The Vivus Solution started as an idea of possibility that grew from experiential evidence into a realisation. The Vivus set phenomenon was discovered in a designed experiment, one Sunday afternoon in January 2013 following some experimental work carried out in Scotland on some zero concrete foundations the previous summer. This proved successful, interesting and showed that this new process was definitely worth further exploration. The Vivus set is the result of Harry’s continued attempts to discover why and how this material could provide the one solution for the building envelope retrofit, as this must have been what used was historically.
Harry has acted as a historic buildings consultant all over the country. Please contact us if you would like to discuss our consultancy service.
Some of the places the Vivus Solutions materials are currently being used; Cattistock, West Dorset, Hooke, West Dorset, the Tarn, South East France, Stroud, Gloucestershire.
