The power to learn

Avila University needed to update their library space. Not surprising since it was originally built in the 1970s. Their team wanted to create an environment that would encourage their students to not only to achieve, but to excel. To do that, the inside had to be completely refreshed in a way that supported active learning. This meant small group spaces, writable surfaces and integrated technology. It meant DIRTT.

To leverage the full capability of the space, Avila installed an access floor and used DIRTT quick connect power solutions. Wiring the rooms with technology built into the walls was simple. It took four technicians only four days to pull all the cable for the space. Using conventional power would have taken five times as long.

Now they have a connected classroom to prepare students for the real world. There’s an innovative learning center with four embedded monitors for both students and faculty. Not to mention small group study rooms for up to eight people. And because DIRTT is designed for disassembly, it’s all flexible for the future. The donors loved that their contribution was going to help students for years to come. Avila University wanted a space that was totally different from what they had before. And DIRTT could do it, because we offer a different way to build.


It’s a tremendous asset for the university and it says this is a space that is dedicated to your success as a student.
