A new way to learn

For more than 25 years, Renert has been the premiere provider of academic support in Calgary. They have a reputation for renowned test prep and tutoring services. But in 2013 they finally made the move to become an accredited private school.

In their new K-12 program, Renert wanted to take a different approach to learning. Instead of a regimented schedule, they encourage students to pursue what interests them. Instead of whiteboards and desks, they wanted classrooms to be collaborative spaces. Their existing building was a good start, but Renert needed to take it to the next level. In 2018, they started work on a new building right next door to become their state-of-the-art high school. With the new semester starting in just a few months, construction had to be quick.

Enter DIRTT.

Designers used the flexibility of our solutions to create comfortable and engaging learning spaces that can change over time. And instead of bringing loads of raw materials to site, DIRTT built these spaces in our factories. That avoided a huge mess on the job site. And to stay organized we delivered finished solutions to site exactly when needed. This created the speed and efficiency Renert needed to get up and running just in time for class.
