Finland’s One Click acquires Buildrz, a French proptech company

One Click, a Helsinki-based developer in life-cycle assessment software for construction and manufacturing, has acquired Buildrz, a Paris-based generative AI software provider for real estate analysis. The acquisition aims to accelerate One Click’s strategy to become the definitive end-to-end sustainability software platform for construction.

  • Founded in 2016, Buildrz develops a SaaS-based real estate development platform, a one-stop tool for property developers and architects to perform generative design in order to optimize buildable surfaces on any given plots.
  • Based on the database of urban plans, Buildrz evaluates land use change, net zero artificialization, views and daylighting, as well as economic value of the projects, enabling customers to identify and qualify sites that offer the best economic opportunities. Currently, Buildz serves around 50 customers across France.

We’re very excited to join forces with Buildrz, and will be working together to bring out new tools that allow reducing cost and carbon emissions of projects starting from the pre-design stage, in France and globally,

Panu Pasanen, founder & CEO of One Click LCA, says.
  • One Click is a tech company decarbonizing construction and manufacturing with its automated life-cycle assessment to calculate and reduce the environmental impacts of building, infrastructure, and renovation projects. It also enables manufacturers to generate and publish third-party verified EPDs, and allows assessment of circularity, life-cycle cost, with plans for biodiversity.
  • The company’s solution is used in over 170 countries and includes a global database with more than 200,000 LCA datasets. One Click LCA was founded in 2001, and has a team of over 180 people. In November 2023, One Click LCA announced €40 million growth equity from PSG Equity and InfraVia Capital Partners.
  • Together with Buildrz, One Click will bring an integrated feasibility study and cost and carbon analysis powered by a generative AI to its users. The first joint solutions are targeted for the end of the year, and they will be made available to the customers through One Click. Also, an integration of the existing tools is planned.

The amount of the deal was undisclosed. It will help One Click to expand globally, with an enhanced presence in France.
