BuildFutures LLC is an affiliated company of BuildForward Capital which is focused on funding deep energy efficiency retrofits and new construction for non-profit organizations. We focus on projects below $5 million in size for the benefit of schools, museums, foundations, religious organizations, community groups and other registered 501(c) 3 entities. BuildFutures leverages the same energy efficiency expertise and financial structuring strengths of the parent, BuildForward Capital, in the non-profit arena.
Our key differentiating factor is the energy efficiency expertise in the design, construction and oversight phase to ensure that the end product meets our carbon impact goals.
BuildForward Capital loans are structured as construction loans, wherein the real estate acts as collateral. Underwriting is based on standard bank models, overlaid with our extensive investment expertise. Each transaction requires approval by the credit committee and senior principals at BuildForward Capital.
The BuildForward lending network serves the needs of borrowers interested in constructing deeply energy efficient buildings through new construction, renovation and retrofit design. As professionals from the alternative investments sector, our expertise enables us to analyze credits and underwrite loans with a turnaround that is faster and more streamlined than established banks.
