Building Clarity has come a long way since its founding 55 years ago as a Trane HVAC company by Don Brady in Greensboro. Jim Brady, President and CEO of Brady said, “At Building Clarity we are undergoing significant transformation—moving from a building services company leveraging technology to a technology company in the field of building services.”

“Since 1995, the NC Tech Awards has honored excellence and innovation throughout North Carolina, representing the best and the brightest,” said Brooks Raiford, president and CEO of NCTA.  “As a winner, Brady has distinguished itself as a peer-leader and we are proud to recognize them as a 2017 NC Tech Awards winner.

From four associates in 1962 to over 420 now, Brady expects to continue to grow, to change, and to use technology to save its customers time and money while at the same time making its customers happier, more comfortable, and more productive. Our newest endeavor in the IOT space, Building Clarity, provides Smart Buildings Analytics solutions to connect building performance to business results for our customers.
