Flexibility for an innovative future

An aging space was transformed into a revolutionary new innovation centre. Along the way, the University of Alberta identified flexibility as top priority. They couldn't predict everything the centre would need into the future. And it needed to stay relevant.
The dean of the Faculty of Science drove the project from the very beginning. The emphasis was on ready responsiveness long term. Yet it needed to be built quickly.
The university opened the doors just ten months after the first brainstorming session. According to the dean, the adaptability of DIRTT's solutions have already been put to use. High engagement meant swapping solid panels for writeable surfaces within weeks of opening.

This space completely changed the building and students are using it constantly!
