We are Brinja

Brinja creates intelligent construction workplaces like smart home systems but designed specifically for the production of new buildings. Our passion is to improve safety, efficiency and sustainability at construction sites.

It all started in 2016 with an idea to use radar to make construction sites safer. In developing this, our customers instead expressed concerns about evacuations as well as other areas and we quickly changed our focus. In May 2017, the first prototype of our evacuation system was born and quickly implemented on a work site - and we haven't stopped developing and improving our products since.

Since January 2018, we have had paying customers from the construction industry such as NCC, Skanska and Peab. Our ambitions are high and we are now facing an incredible growth journey.

Through our customers' feedback, we have been able to streamline several areas of the construction process. With our services, the construction site becomes safer and more secure and manual processes are digitally managed with automation. Today, we have grown and developed together with our customers and can now offer these services:

  • Comprehensive evacuation system
  • Smart quality measurements
  • Energy-saving light control
  • Automated concrete measurement

For us at Brinja, sustainability is a central part of who we are and what we do. Our goal is to create safe and efficient workplaces and thus contribute to ecological, economic and social sustainability. Our business model is also circular and is based on renting out our products instead of selling them. In this way, we can easily reuse, upgrade and repair our products so that the service life increases by up to five years. In addition, it allows us to quickly and easily get our products out to more projects and thus use them efficiently.

We contribute concretely to achieving three of the UN's sustainable development goals, see which and how we contribute below.

UN Sustainable Development Goal 7

With our lighting control, electricity consumption for site lighting can be reduced by up to 85%. As the construction industry accounts for 17% of Sweden's electricity consumption, Brinja can help to significantly increase the energy efficiency of the construction sector.

UN Sustainable Development Goal 8

Our services contribute to increased safety and security in the workplace, but also increased efficiency. Since we only rent out our products, they can be easily repaired, upgraded and reused.

UN Sustainable Development Goal 9

We help digitize and automate manual processes on construction sites. Brinja also works to influence the construction industry through various forums and lobbying.
