DIRTT Environmental Solutions wins 2011 Progressive Manufacturing Top 100 Award

by Sarah Blue

Calgary’s DIRTT Environmental Solutions has been selected as a winner of the 2011 Progressive Manufacturing 100 Award in the Innovation Mastery category. The PM100 is an awards program honouring manufacturing companies that have transformed themselves through the use of technology.

Every year, Managing Automation magazine, a magazine for manufacturers, recognizes 100 groundbreaking manufacturing companies from around the world. Past winners in the Innovation Mastery category are Dow Chemical, Toshiba and Timberland. DIRTT, a manufacturer of modular walls, was selected for the development of a client-driven manufacturing process. Using ICE, the process speeds up sales and orders by 6 to 10 times and reduces manufacturing deficiencies to less than 1 percent.

The judges chose DIRTT for its ability to deliver tailor-made solutions and the use of ICE software’s interactive, 3D videogame-like experiences to show clients exactly what their entire space will look like. The DIRTT modular walls can be compared to LEGO, meaning they can be designed to suit the customer’s needs. They are easily disassembled and reassembled in a new location and accessible for adding and maintaining technology – all without the material and energy waste of conventional construction, demolition and renovations.

DIRTT will receive their award at a gala in Palm Beach, Florida on May 11.
