This seamless integration enables KODE Labs to standardize and organize data at scale, positioning the company as a trailblazer in AI technology tailored for buildings.

With a proven track record of reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions by up to 30%, KODE Labs’ platform has garnered acclaim from Fortune 500 corporations, retailers, financial institutions, and global REITs across various sectors. By prioritizing user experience and operational excellence, KODE Labs has established itself as a leader in sustainable real estate management.

The Series B funding will fuel KODE Labs’ expansion and AI development efforts, enabling the company to further innovate building operations and experiences. By analyzing vast amounts of data, KODE Labs aims to create buildings that prioritize human experience and environmental impact, envisioning a future where efficiency meets human-centric design.

Since its inception, KODE Labs has forged partnerships with renowned companies such as QuadReal, Bedrock Detroit, Stream Realty, Hines, Ford, and other global corporations and REITs.
