Who are we?

Adaptavate is a business of the future, a dynamic team of engineers, thinkers, walkers, parents, dreamers, climbers, scientists, gardeners, friends, and visionaries. People who think differently to make a significant impact through our work… together.

We are establishing a leading business to answer the urgent call to decarbonise construction globally. This is done by developing the carbon-negative technologies and products needed, and the industrial ecosystem to deploy them fast, anywhere in the world. We develop low-carbon and carbon-negative construction materials as a form of Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU), with circularity at the core. To maximize our impact, we are making available our patented technology to product manufacturers across the world.

Our first products are Breathaplasta and Breathaboard, which are drop-in alternatives to standard materials such as plaster and plasterboard, respectively. Working to be ecologically regenerative and economically profitable, Adaptavate is building a business that does not take from the planet but is part of the planet.

We are expanding our team and need a Business Support Administrator to support us across the business, collaborate with us and help us achieve all that we are aiming for. We cannot wait for you to join us!
