Ventilation experts breathe in investment 

Natural ventilation specialist Breathing Buildings has secured £1 million in second round funding to expand its business both in the UK and internationally.

The Berti Green Accelerator programme has backed the growth ambitions of Breathing Buildings by providing £1 million of new investment capital.

Breathing Buildings’ patented ‘e-stack’ system works by significantly reducing the energy required for heating and ventilating buildings, providing low energy ventilation using the principles of mixing ventilation in winter and natural upward displacement ventilation in summer.

The funding comes from three different sources including the Berti Green Accelerator programme, an initiative supported by James Caan, which seeks to champion entrepreneurial, low-carbon businesses in the UK.

In addition, the company secured investment from the Adapt Low Carbon Group, and Breathing Buildings’ original investor MMC Ventures.

Bruce Macfarlane, managing partner at MMC Ventures says, ‘We are delighted to be continuing our investment partnership with the team at Breathing Buildings, who are creating a real British growth and success story with their world-leading natural ventilation solutions.

‘It’s fantastic that they have now attracted additional funding from the Adapt Low Carbon Group – and I’d like to congratulate them on becoming part of the Berti Green Accelerator programme.’

Shaun Fitzgerald, managing director of Breathing Buildings adds, ‘The coming together of all three funding strands makes this a very exciting time for Breathing Buildings. It enables us to roll out our UK plans for nationwide sales coverage and really push forward the business internationally with US-based Price Industries. Developing our sales presence across the UK is a priority.’
