DIRTT's Mission and Vision
DIRTT is radically and profitably modernizing the multi-billion dollar construction industry. Previously unimagined mass-custom modular solutions offer speed, design, performance and environmental sustainability for the built environment. The result is a powerful investment for our Clients and a potent strategy for DIRTT as a company.
"Though we are relative newcomers to the agile interiors scene, we DIRTTbags arrive on the scene with a combined hundreds of years of experience. What drew us together wasn't the idea of simply competing with other walls out there, but to create an interior solution and an experience that goes far beyond simply demising space. We wanted a space that would finally loosen the grip of conventional (like 19th century 'conventional') construction, and an experience that informs, empowers and inspires.
DIRTT is Doing It Right This Time. And yep, we're DIRTTbags. You gotta problem wit dat? Oh, we're not those dirt bags – though we would like to see drywall sleeping wit da fishes. We are a passionate group of people (approx. 700 in total) who strive to provide clients with the best solutions, experiences and environments possible. We help each other. We volunteer. We are often goofy. We all thrive on the idea that we are actually doing something to make the world a better place – not just adding to the stuff."
See you November 29th.
