Our Mission

Urban Trigger Technologies is a company founded on the firm belief that our collective progress intimately connects with our ability to effectuate new knowledge.

Today cities are growing at unprecedented pace and the UN predicts 68% of the world population to be living in urban areas by 2050. The architecture, engineering and construction industry is also responsible for almost 40% of global CO₂ emissions. We therefore collectively confront very real need for change, in order to adapt and flourish within the constraints of our environment.

We believe this adaptation involves a complex systems perspective. A perspective where the actors within today's AEC industry are given meaningful and economic incentive for collective and sustainable change. To bridge this vision we are building a new competitive edge, by providing a platform and lens to uncover, understand and seize shared action and progress in a broader urban context.

Building on more than two decades of research and studies of the interaction between human cognition and built environments, and utilizing the timely opportunities afforded by today's digitalization, data-driven analytics and artificial intelligence, we are excited to set forth on the journey to provide the next standard in management, operations and maintenance for the AEC industry.
