Prefabricated Interior Solutions
DIRTT Environmental Solutions manufactures custom prefab interiors including DIRTT Walls, DIRTT Power, DIRTT Networks, and DIRTT Millwork. DIRTT’s products and process provide an adaptive approach to rapid construction. We think the building process stands to benefit when construction embraces technology. Leveraging ICE® software, we are offering solutions that allow our clients to build more quickly, cost effectively and sustainably, than ever before.
Whether your interiors support healthcare, education or commercial offices our prefabricated walls and wall panels are custom-made to suit your organization dimensionally, functionally and aesthetically. We do not have standard shapes, sizes or finishes. Every space is built to your exact specification.
DIRTT’s innovative virtual reality software, ICEvr, allows you to experience the project in real time as you walk through your design. ICEvr is totally changing the game for project design and installation, because you can see exactly how your space is going to look before it’s finalized. With virtual reality walk-throughs, you can find any potential issues before they arise, saving you time and hassle, and ensuring the final product is completely to your standards. Check out HHI’s ICEvr social hour below to see just how incredible this technology is.

Building and construction methods have changed dramatically over the last decade as technology drives innovation. Construction cycles have been reduced by one half. Building Information Modeling (BIM) allows builders and owners the ability to improve the flow of information and collaboration on the fly as buildings are erected. BIM has also provided owners with the information they need to manage and maintain their facility for decades to come. Construction delivery methods have become faster, more efficient and more collaborative to reduce cost and provide better buildings that meet owner goals. Prefab technology improves building quality and reduces cost. Labor costs and labor scarcity are having an ever larger influence on construction delivery.
So What? – How Does That Affect Me?
Haldeman Homme has adapted to these changes and provides many services to help builders, contractors and design professionals better serve their clients. One example is DIRTT. DIRTT is a manufacturer of prefabricated walls, electrical, data, ceiling and flooring systems to address many of the changes and challenges mentioned above. Prefabricated walls or modular, adaptable walls are commonly linked to modular office furniture or cubicles and modular offices. DIRTT is not modular office furniture. DIRTT is a system for building design and prefabricated assembly to assist contractors with meeting client operational, project schedule, budget and custom aesthetic needs. The opportunity for you to build a unique and special place that maximizes the performance of your organization is right here!
The process starts with us understanding your building project goals. Then we help you walk thru the programming, budgeting and design process with our building design software. We can simplify this design process from weeks or months to hours and provide you with instant 2D and 3D fly thru views of your project as well as hard costs for materials and labor. The design software is compatible with ACAD and Revit to assist you and your design professionals in the programming and construction drawing process. The design software allows us to release design direct to manufacturing so you can have prefabricated materials on site within four weeks. The end result is value that you add to your client’s experience and relationship with you. Time savings, labor savings, flexible design, simple wall and services changes and unmatched aesthetics are additional benefits enjoyed by the owner and contractor.
Doesn’t PreFab Cost More?
No! DIRTT prefab walls can be installed for less than traditional stick built/stud and sheetrock construction. How? About 70% of stick built construction cost is labor. Labor costs go up every year and labor shortages add to cost and schedule time and complication. DIRTT prefab wall costs are 70% materials because walls are assembled in a state of the art automated assembly plant where labor costs can be controlled and minimized. DIRTT costs have not increased in the last 10 years due to improved plant efficiencies and material cost management. Automated assembly makes for dimensionally accurate, consistent quality prefab walls that are more durable and adaptable to future change. DIRTT prefab walls are five times more durable than drywall so ongoing maintenance cost is reduced substantially. Contractors will also consider that this cost comparison does not factor the engineering and project management time and cost savings using prefab walls. Pre-engineered electrical and mechanical services, accurate dimensions, 3 week design-to-production turnaround and a shorter construction schedule adds value to the contractor’s and owner’s bottom line.
Where Can I Use PreFab Walls?
Everywhere. Prefab walls are suitable for any traditional wall construction facility including schools, hospitality, medical , offices, residential and institutions. It is also a great solution for custom, high appeal, high image spaces using unique materials to make a statement. Or areas where walls, electrical and mechanical are changed frequently. Ask to see a demonstration of the thousands of clients who use our prefab walls.
Sustainable? You Bet.
It seems natural that a company building prefab walls is thinking and acting sustainably. It is true that DIRTT saves resources because it is a prefabricated product that can be reused over and over as compared to stick built materials that end up in a landfill. DIRTT also uses recycled content in its product. The fully integrated design-to-production nature of prefab walls means construction jobsite product waste, human error and the need for mockups is eliminated. DIRTT even tracks its paper use, carbon and pollution output. We’d love to tell you more about it. Just ask us!
