We are on a mission to reduce the impact of the built environment by merging cutting edge technology and expertise into a seamless platform
Who we are
Bractlet is a team of engineers, software developers, data scientists, IoT experts, product managers, and finance experts driven by a mission to use simulation modeling to change the way buildings are designed, operated and maintained. We believe that driving financial, operational, and energy efficiencies isn’t solved with technology alone, but rather technology that unleashes the potential of the best engineers and captures the experience of industry veterans. Buildings are complex, unique ecosystems of people, structures, and equipment that are impacted by changing environmental conditions and ever evolving economic trends. Making sense of this complexity to uncover value and unlock inefficiencies at scale is no easy feat. At Bractlet we believe that by combining diverse disciplines into a holistic solution will drive tangible economic value for building owners, create better work environments and improve our world.
Guided by the dream of making buildings more efficient, three friends from Georgia Tech (Alec, Brian, and Matt), set out to turn their vision into a reality. In 2012, Bractlet’s founders packed their bags for Santiago, Chile to begin a journey that spanned four cities and two continents and resulted in several maxed out credit cards. After attempting to drive energy efficiency in their college dorms, they were limited by a challenge to collect granular data to understand operations. Bractlet was founded on the idea that making it easier to collect data from buildings was paramount to unlocking inefficiencies. Attempting to bring this idea to market revealed that just collecting and analyzing historical data wasn’t enough. Data streams tell different stories based on the unique designs and characteristics of a building, and to have real value, data must have this context. A new solution was required to tackle this challenge.
With a growing team of software engineers, engineering veterans, and energy modelers, Bractlet took antiquated and hard to use simulation technology and developed a scalable platform that powers its intelligence engine and solutions. This type of technology has the power to bring transparency throughout the built environment by allowing data and analytics to drive decision making and providing tools and intelligence to streamline the implementation of building improvements, and continuously ensure buildings sustain their financial and energy performance. Today, Bractlet’s Intelligence Engine is deployed by leading operators in more than 25mm ft2 of commercial office buildings nationwide and has analyzed more than 1,000 projects. While we are just getting started and numerous obstacles lie ahead, we know our team has the DNA, focus and perseverance to continue to develop and iterate on high impact solutions for revolutionizing the built world.
