The funding round was led by Socii Captial, with participation from Autodesk, Saint-Gobain, Barton Malow Ventures, Halking Private Capital and Luck Investment.
Birketts’ team advising KOPE AI was led by Caroline Nicholls (Legal Director, Corporate) and included Faye Power (Solicitor, Corporate) and Anthony Metcalfe-Gibson (Senior Associate, Employee Incentives).
Speaking about the fundraising, Mark Thorley, Co-founder and CEO of KOPE, said: “This latest fundraising gives us further confidence that KOPE will support those in our industry looking to adopt prefabrication and offsite manufacturing. With these key industry partners and their broad experience, we are excited about this next phase of our journey.
