Built-ID was founded by Savannah de Savary. After graduating from university she started out her career in real-estate development. She grew frustrated with the lengthy and bureaucratic inefficiencies that limited access to critical data for developing real estate projects to who you know rather than what you know. She felt there was a real need to democratise the planning process. And Built-ID was born!
Since founding Built-ID, Savannah and the team have evolved. We are a team of passionate individuals unified by our mission to build trust, more sustainable and inclusive places.
Our aim is to empower community members to have an equal voice in decision-making; regardless of their social-economic background.
Most importantly, we are a social impact company who put people at the heart of everything we do. We want to engage and empower diverse voices to be a core part of the change process.
This is why becoming an accredited B Corporation was a no brainer. It validates our purpose and challenges us to not be complacent in our mission.
We are community-centric
We want diverse voices in communities to have a constructive, tangible impact on decisions that impact them. Whether it is a community of people brought together by place and geographic boundaries; or a community of people who share the same interest; or a community of people trying to bring about change.
We are entrepreneurs at heart
We actively foster a culture that empowers ideas to flow from anywhere within our team. We are radically agile, never resting on our laurels, we resist complacency and seek out new opportunities. We are constantly achieving efficiently and thinking outside the box.
We build trust
We are a safe space to trust and be trusted, to belong, and to bring our true authentic selves. We foster an environment that embraces diversity, inclusiveness, openness and transparency. We cultivate understanding through respect, patience, and trust.
We are intellectually curious
We relentlessly focus on growth and learning by seeking to understand more about the world around us. We constantly challenge the status quo in our pursuit of excellence.
