21st century learning solutions

Don Ross Middle School wanted to update the learning experience for their students. But engaging the student body wasn’t going to be straightforward. They had a 70-year-old building that hadn’t been refreshed in decades. Building remediation was going to eat into the time they had for construction. The clock was ticking. The deadline was September. How could they create an active learning environment in less than five months? As far as the architect was concerned, DIRTT was the only way to do it.

Making the most of off-site construction, the DIRTT factory built a state-of-the-art learning commons while other teams worked to update the base building. Because both of these things were happening at the same, the school got a compressed schedule without compromise. Bright rooms, writable surfaces, usable spaces. And durable ones too. Because let’s be real — middle school students aren’t known for being gentle on their surroundings. Now this modern learning center gives them a place to break out, hang out and collaborate.
