Density, a specialist in business solutions for the built environment, and The Building People, a provider of smart building solutions that support the built environment, announced they have entered a strategic partnership.
The companies said that their combined expertise and capabilities will accelerate the deployment of smarter solutions to manage, connect and automate buildings.
This partnership will combine Density’s ability to measure and analyze space use and performance with The Building People’s delivery of smart building solutions that optimize operational, workplace, energy, sustainability and facility management services.
The partners noted that the new platform will allow for buildings that produce lower emissions and less waste, but also create safer buildings and better-designed cities.
Trevor Morrison, vice president of Energy and Smarter Buildings at The Building People commented, “We couldn’t be more excited to team up with Density. We’ve now dramatically expanded our Smarter Buildings offering to include the premier and industry leading real-time portfolio management and analytics platform.”
“Connectivity and technology are increasingly critical to operating and managing today’s buildings,” said Laura Patel, director of Account Strategy at Density. “At Density, we’ve built technology that can help digitize, measure and benchmark space utilization, and we’re excited to join forces with The Building People, adding its world class solutions to our approach.”
In July, Density has successfully closed $51 million in Series C funding. The new funding round was led by Kleiner Perkins.
“Density is powering the future of how we measure and manage physical space, and there hasn’t been a more critical moment in our history to get this right,” said Ilya Fushman, partner at Kleiner Perkins. “Helping businesses reopen safely during a pandemic is just the start for Density, and we’re excited to lead the Series C.”
Density counts people in any space anonymously, accurately, and in real-time to help businesses safely reopen their offices and measure ROI of real-estate portfolios.
