Check out the case studies below to see what our clients have to say after they used DIRTT on their project!


The Salt-Lake-City-based training software giant, INSTRUCTURE, needed a temp space while their new building was being finished. They wanted two things: the temp space couldn’t feel temporary and they wanted to take it with them to the new building.

KCL Engineering

This globally renowned engineering firm, based in Des Moines Iowa, found a great old heritage building for their work-hard/play-hard team. To make it work for their fast pace and fun culture they integrated DIRTT, including DIRTT’s tech-delivered, heavy-timber solutions. The principals loved the construction approach so much, they even had some plexiglass finishes to show off the performance inside their walls.

Greater Atlanta Christian School

The Greater Atlanta Christian School was struggling to build a performing arts center. They didn’t have the stage size or the audience capacity to suit their popular and growing program. The cost of a new building, in terms of money, time and pain, was too high to bear. But the only space available was an old, plain, smallish church. On top of it all, they wanted a space that would make people think of the beautiful, traditional schools and churches of Europe. Watch how they used DIRTT Timber to make their dream come true.

University of Iowa

Kansas City Orthopaedic Institute

Doctor-owned facility demands clean, cost-certain reno and new build.

A project two-years in the making has one constant – the price quoted by DIRTT at the start. The physicians initially chose DIRTT to keep their patients comfortable and safe while under construction. Now the warm and welcoming spaces, with excellent infection control, are helping to make KCOI the top pick for patients needing orthopaedic care in the region.
