The construction of high performance buildings needs construction material and supplies which perform at a much higher level than required by current existing code in the US. This is particularly true of products that are required for Passive House construction, which are available plentifully and cost effectively in places like Europe which already have an extensive base of Passive House buildings. However the US has yet to achieve the benefits of economies of scale in improving the cost profile of such materials - we believe that BuildForward's financing of projects will add to cumulative demand in a way that is very beneficial to driving down the cost curve.
Consequently, the company is looking for innovative ways to lower material prices for its projects and to potentially partner with the supplier base to achieve these goals.
