DIRTT

  1. 1. DIRTT (DOING IT RIGHT THIS TIME) Moving the construction sector to zero material waste
  2. 2. The construction industry squanders materials, consuming 60% of all material flows and contributing to 30% of the waste stream in the United States (EPA). This overconsumption is fueled by the construction-renovation-demolition (CRD) cycle and leads to the loss of valuable virgin resources and unacceptable levels of waste. Until recently it was assumed these practices were the cost of doing business. DIRTT (DOING IT RIGHT THIS TIME) Moving the construction sector to zero material waste DIRTT (Doing It Right This Time) maximizes material conservation through a patented, prefabricated and modular assembly for adaptable and customizable building interiors. DIRTT and ICE create rapid, precise initial construction and avoid the destructive cycle of demolition. Smart technology and a distributed manufacturing strategy ensure the solution’s global success.
  3. 3. The company focuses instead on Reduce-Reuse strategies. Resilient design principles are at the heart of DIRTT solutions, which are designed for disassembly and reuse by standardizing all connector components. DIRTT walls can be reconfigured and reused within the space, instead of discarded and replaced. This design shift decreases material demands and environmental impacts while still meeting customers’ changing needs.
  4. 4. DIRTT’s software, ICE, reduces waste through offsite prefabrication, just-in-time lean manufacturing techniques and by rationalizing the use of materials across projects. It reduces deficiencies (errors in manufacturing) to less than one percent, reduces factory space by 30 percent, and reconfigures interiors to efficiently reuse all existing components. Offcuts from manufacturing are reused or
