About Us

Our team brings together science and built environment


Our team is passionate about the human side of built environment, constantly developing innovative ways to value the human experience and create healthy spaces.

The concept for Rate My Space came from research into user experience and healthy buildings, some key opportunities were found:

  • Ability to create better spaces using feedback from users
  • Unrealised health & productivity improvements in buildings
  • Opportunities to apply better science to design

A pilot project with Curtin University saw the development of a software platform which could gather vast amounts of data from end users for use in building management and planning.

From then we have been growing, bringing human insights about buildings to organisations.
