ICE SOFTWARE

I

t’s a videogame for design – with brains for business. ICE®

software

provides

graphical,

interactive

exploration of your design. Everyone is on the same page and understands the big picture. Meanwhile, behind the scenes your design is instantly calculated into the parts, pieces, connections and pricing. Changing it? even in 3D?

N

ot a problem. ICE automatically updates every aspect. Ultimately, that information goes to

the DIRTT factory where your Walls are precisely manufactured without human interpretation.


TECHNOLOGY APPLICATIONS

T

he parametric nature of the Walls means you further design them to suit your building, your

furniture and your culture. Using DIRTT’s intelligent, 3D software called ICE®, you experience your space in real-time, interactive 3D and modify it to create the exact space you want. Every change you make is automatically updated in the quote, specification and production information.

A

s it always does, technology will change. DIRTT Walls are impervious to change. Universal

mounting abilities – inside and outside the Walls – mean whatever comes next will fit without demolition and rebuilding with all the attendant noise, material disposal and energy waste.

DIRTT Walls do not predict the future. They just go with it.


FLOORS

T

he DIRTT Floor is a low-profile floor. At just two and five-eights inches high it doesn’t support HVAC

, but it does support adaptable power and data infrastructures. In some cases, where ceiling conditions are limiting, a low-profile floor is the only choice.

T

he clever design of the DIRTT Floor components makes it straightforward to install.

O

nce in place, the sub-trades simply open the pathways and lay down their cables thereby

lowering labor hours. This is compared to going up and down ladders and feeding wires into trays in the ceiling.

N

o matter the brand of floor, the smartest approach is to fill it with modular power and

data solutions.


DOORS

O

ur favorite is the sliding door. It’s quiet, doesn’t need a floor track, quick to install, smooth and easy to operate, offers amazing acoustics, is non-handed, plus it saves square feet like there’s no tomorrow. Our

sliding doors can be solid, framed glass, frameless glass and double. But we know there is a place in the world for other kinds of doors, so we also have very nice pivot and butt hinge doors.

I

t is the little things make our Sliding Doors such a great choice. Acoustic seals, ADA compliant pulls, discreet little feet to hold the door firm to the wall, the ability to put it inside or outside the room and flip it around if that room

gets reconfigured.

O T

ur Pivot Doors also come in framed or frameless glass, solid and double, they also are available with automatic closers. Plus we developed a daring Center Pivot Door that is simply clean, elegant fun.

he workhorse Butt Hinge door can be sourced locally and we will simply supply the hardware. Lock hardware and/or signage options are available for each door type.


MILLWORK

A

drawer that shuts itself. A credenza hanging off the floor. An overhead that is the perfect fit…these are little things that make a big difference.

D

IRTT Millwork is fully customizable, modular cabinetry. Just like built in situ millwork, you can create the perfect piece to fit the perfect space. Unlike conventional millwork, DIRTT Millwork offers a set price, a fast lead-time,

smooth install and long-term agility.

D

IRTT Millwork works for nearly any application – healthcare, corporate, residential, education, government… Finishes and shapes are determined by the designer to suit the space. Using ICE® software, the designer

designs while the software specifies, prices and produces manufacturing information. The perfect piece is produced quickly and without error.

H

ands-free drawers, secure lockers, non-splash-back sinks, overheads, Java Center cabinetry and countertops are just some of the many ways DIRTT Millwork can morph into what you need, in the size you need, at the

speed you need. It all hangs from the horizontal support in DIRTT Walls, ready to move if you need it to.


CORPORATE

T

he ability to adapt quickly and painlessly is a powerful business tactic. It isn’t just something for down the road. Flexibility is vital during the design, construction and move-in stages of your workspace. Once you are up and

running and business demands change, you should then be confident in your ability to adapt without disruption, high costs or time wasted. DIRTT gives you that confidence.

D

IRTT ’s built-in flexibility is designed to suit your unique needs – aesthetically, functionally and technologically. There are no standard sizes or shapes or layouts. Your Walls will fit your chosen real estate, support your

furniture, integrate your current and future technologies and exude your corporate culture.

T

o ensure you get what you want, DIRTT uses ICE® intelligent, 3D software. It shows you your workspace in graphic 3D, where you fly-through your design, make large or small modifications and see how it affects your

budget – Instantly. This fly-through can be captured and shared with your stakeholders to inform and unite your company in making the best decisions.

DIRTT turns your office into a dynamic part of your business strategy.


EDUCATION

L

earning environments are under constant change. Technology, teaching methods, enrollment‌ all

regularly stretch the abilities of the physical space and put it in jeopardy. Older buildings are most endangered, yet they bring a sense of stability and history to their neighborhoods. It is our duty to provide students with schools to support learning and buildings that support society.

B

y creating agile and highly functional interiors, the building itself becomes impervious to the

winds of change. DIRTT Walls offer the ability to adapt to changes large and small. They support today’s technology and whatever comes tomorrow. Each Wall is designed as you need, functionally, dimensionally and aesthetically.


HEALTHCARE

H

ealthcare facilities are some of the most technologically

intensive,

fastest

changing

spaces. Oh, and by the way they have to provide an empathetic human experience for patients, visitors and staff. Success comes down to better care and improved outcomes.

DIRTT Walls satisfy all these criteria.

T

hey offer customized, accessible support for medical gasses, equipment, plumbing, power/

data, handrails, furniture, storage, and audio/visual systems. The challenges of infection prevention and layout consistency are also met with rigor. DIRTT offers anti-bacterial finishes and the ability to design same placement of equipment in every room, making fewer opportunities for infections and mistakes.


JAVA CENTERS

C

reate a destination spot in your office. A place that shows you are a client-driven business and a desirable employer – without breaking your budget or extending your construction schedule. Create it with DIRTT

Java Centers.

A

Java Center gives you a perfect in-house space to effortlessly host clients and create a pleasant refreshment area to attract and keep great employees. The DIRTT Walls support wiring, plumbing, furniture and appliances,

resulting in a hospitable area that integrates elegantly with the rest of your space.

Y

ou are free to choose handcrafted cabinetry or modular caseworks. Add dishwashers, sinks, fridges, coffee makers, TVs, granite countertops…you create the perfect response to your needs using ICE® software to

design it. Interactive, intelligent and in graphical 3D, ICE lets you quickly design, specify and price the perfect space for your corporate culture.

I

n conventional construction the refreshment area often becomes a casualty of cost and/or schedule overruns. Then it is downgraded or eliminated. By choosing DIRTT Walls for this aspect of your project you ensure results

are on budget, on time and exactly what you wanted. On top of it all, they are as agile and accessible as every other DIRTT application.


ACCESSORIES

T

he little things can make a big difference. DIRTT Accessories are just those little things. They provide

everything from a place to store CDs to a vase for a flower to brighten your day. Nearly all the Accessories slip neatly into any horizontal extrusion you see on any DIRTT Wall.


INSTALLATION

B

uild as Drawn is a term used to describe the finished work of the installation crew. All price quotations

were based on the number of hours to build and layout the furniture as shown on the installation drawing.

C

hange Orders are required to do any work not in the original scope of the installation quotation.

This could be additional work not part of the original work order or a request to change the build as drawn specification to some other variation.

Generally, all

changes to the scope of work are billable at the time and materials rate.

Completion of change order

work is based on crew availability and may require rescheduling.

P

ower and Data work is not completed by furniture installation personnel. This is due to code restrictions

and the need for certifiable data connections.

It is

the customer’s responsibility to order this work from independent contractors.
