DIRTT (Do It Right This Time) will open a new assembly plant in Savannah, GA, to build the company’s modular, movable walls. The plant totals 81,000 sq.ft. and will be the first manufacturing plant for the company outside of Calgary, Alberta, where DIRTT is based.
DIRTT Walls are used for office interiors as an alternative to conventional studs and drywall construction. The walls support furniture and can be tilted down and moved to a new location when change occurs in the office, providing a more sustainable solution than building on-site, then demolishing walls only to build them again
The Savannah plant will “take advantage of existing rail lines and shipping lanes for delivery,” says CEO Mogens Smed, thus shortening lead times and reducing the company’s carbon footprint. DIRTT will hold a news conference at Savannah’s Chatham Steel Corporation on January 21, 3:30 pm to discuss its plans to open the facility
