UpCodes is a startup that develops building-code compliance tools to manage building codes, avoid project delays, and clarify requirements.

UpCodes helps the AEC industry deliver code compliant buildings.

UpCodes was founded in 2016 by Garrett Reynolds and Scott Reynolds. The company is headquartered in San Francisco, California.

UpCodes brings together construction codes, fire codes, and ADA standards categorized by jurisdiction. The open information platform is designed to increase accessibility and facilitate collaboration between architects, designers, engineers, and construction professionals.

UpCodes’ first product was a searchable database of building codes with collaboration tools. Then in 2018 it launched UpCodes AI, a tool that scans 3D models created with building information modeling (BIM) data and alerts architects about potential issues.


UpCodes' newest feature, its code calculator, is designed for people who have compliance questions, but might not know how to navigate building codes, which differ between municipalities, contain multiple sections and often have amendments attached.


UpCodes currently has about 500,000 monthly active users. The company’s paid customers include construction firms like Stantec and ARCO National Construction, architecture firms SOM and Ennead, and Airbnb, Cornell University and the State University of New York.


UpCodes is backed by Point Nine Capital, Capital X, Flex Capital, Liquid 2 Ventures, Y Combinator and others. The company raised $3.36M in pre-Series A round on Mar 15, 2021. This brings UpCodes' total funding to $4.15M to date.
