Sefaira was founded in 2009 with a mission to promote more sustainable buildings by helping the building industry design, build, operate, maintain and transform all facets of the built environment. We do this by providing the industry with innovative web-based sustainable and energy efficient building design software.
The name Sefaira comes from the Greek word sfera or sphere. This symbolises the Earth and indicates the way in which Sefaira takes a holistic approach to understanding and addressing sustainability problems, and to develop offerings which are globally applicable.
Sefaira’s proprietary cloud-based technology, built upon deep building physics expertise, offers an integrated approach to sustainable design analysis, knowledge management, and decision support. Sefaira helps building designers analyze and compare sustainable building strategies for new build or retrofit projects in a fraction of the time and cost previously required. By providing sophisticated analysis via an intuitive web interface, Sefaira helps users define, quantify and optimize the energy, water, carbon and financial benefits of relevant design strategies. This helps users effectively balance the investment between various building strategies, to maximize capital efficiency, minimize energy and water use and create high performing sustainable building designs at low cost.
Sefaira helps users design greener and better buildings, much faster and cost effectively than ever before.
From Sefaira's offices in London and New York, we have supported projects across the US, Europe through the Middle East and in Asia. Our results are created by a team who all share a passion for green buildings, and for the way in which technology can help transform the green building space.
Sefaira has won numerous awards, including the Green Building Innovation of the Year award at Ecobuild 2011.
