We’re a passionate team with decades of experience across building science, energy management, software development, and sustainability.
We developed BuildingLens to address two core problems in our industry:
Small to mid-sized buildings (SMBs) lack access to advanced automation
While SMBs make up over 95% of the buildings in the U.S., only 13% have building automation tools.
Priority Populations aren't a focus
Everyone deserves to enjoy the benefits of building automation, like healthy indoor spaces. Everyone doesn’t include everyone until it includes priority populations.
We address these challenges through user-friendly, Software as a Service (SaaS) tools designed for the unique needs of SMBs. These include:
At BuildingLens, we believe the transition to cleaner, smarter buildings must benefit everyone – especially groups who have been excluded from these advancements.
That’s why we intentionally design our solutions to serve priority populations.
Who are Priority Populations?
Priority populations include groups with limited access to healthy, livable buildings. These groups include:
- BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and people of color)
- People experiencing low to moderate incomes
- Women and Assigned Females at Birth
- People who live in rural communities
- Adults over 65
- Immigrant and English-as-a-Second-Language speakers
- People living with disabilities
- People experiencing houselessness
