$22 million investment made in energy efficient building maker

September 09, 2011 |

Providing both capital and collaboration, GE led a $22 million investment round in San Francisco-based Project Frog and began construction of one of its prefabricated environmentally sustainable buildings at GE's renowned Learning Center in Ossining, NY.
Led by GE Energy Financial Services and joined by other investors including Claremont Creek Ventures, Greener Capital Partners, and RockPort Capital Partners, the $22 million investment will help Project Frog expand its sales pipeline and execute on orders. The investment amount for each firm participating was not disclosed.
Project Frog's technology improves traditional building construction methods by combining semi-custom designs with a pre-engineered kit of energy-efficient building components. This enables higher quality, more environmentally sustainable, faster and cheaper construction. Through advanced performance modeling, Project Frog analyzes how its buildings will perform in each location, allowing owners to optimize a building kit to match their desired performance. The kits are delivered to project sites ready for assembly, and typically take one to six months to construct --less than half the time required for traditional construction. The buildings use at least 25% less energy than the strictest building codes in the U.S., and as much as 80% less energy in certain parts of the country. Project Frog manufactures its commercial building systems for educational and government organizations, healthcare offices and retail spaces. BD+C
