A beautiful construction is centered on these simple ideas: open communication between owner, architect and builder; and quality craft that reflects care for people and environment. These concepts are the focus of Vida's company philosophy.

As a licensed general contracting company, Vida Building Systems strives to build the vision of owners and architects to exacting high-quality standards, utilizing environmentally sustainable materials, products and practices wherever possible. Through our work, we endeavor to demonstrate respect for the planet.

Vida Building Systems was founded by Jonathan Cunha, an early adopter of the green ethic that is reshaping the construction industry. Responding to the toxicity of materials and excessive waste generated by most projects, Jonathan began his search for a better way to build in 1997.

With well over a decade of green building expereince, Jonathan launched Vida Building Systems in 2010. View Jonathan's work to see just how beautiful sustainable can be.

Vida Building Systems is fully licensed, bonded and insured.

At Vida Building Systems we don't just talk about sustainability: We live the practice. Sourcing wood from salvage or windfall. Using cotton instead of fiberglass insulation. Deconstructing mindfully rather than demolishing indiscriminately.

From the services we provide to the manner in which we provide them, we look for every opportunity to reduce the environmental impact of our business.
