Founder

Raefer Wallis, is an Architect and the founder of GIGA, an independent third party combining the development of building standards with cloud technology to increase the accessibility and impact of healthy buildings globally.

Working at the intersection of healthy buildings and cloud technology, Raefer has pioneered standards for data quality which are now used internationally and serve as foundations for both RESET and ORIGIN, GIGA’s two primary areas of focus:

– RESET is the world’s first building standard to assess and benchmark the health performance of buildings using continuous monitoring.
– ORIGIN is the world’s largest hub of data on building materials and a proud supporter of the mindful Materials initiative.

Raefer is behind many award-winning firsts, including the first carbon-neutral hotel in Asia, the first eco-regenerative retreat in China and the largest modern rammed-earth building in the world.

He has co-authored books on modern rammed-earth construction and alternative chemicals assessment, published by Woodhead and the Royal Society of Chemistry.

Regularly invited to lecture around the world, his work has been featured by the NYT, CNN, CBC, TED, WSJ, Guardian, Architectural Digest and many more.
