As a green homebuilder with a 65-year history, Minto is no stranger to building better spaces to live, work, and play. When they planned a major renovation to their Ottawa headquarters, they needed a space that could be built sustainably, support collaboration, and create a healthier, vibrant atmosphere.

Minto had built a DIRTT timber frame structure in their Toronto office, where it quickly became an office hot spot. In the Ottawa location, four timber structures offered a natural warmth and a calm comfortable vibe. It also solved a design challenge. With four large existing skylights in the building, the timber created collaborative touchdown spaces with a canopy to manage the glare caused by existing light.

In addition to the timber, DIRTT offered the fit, finish, and attention to detail the project designer was looking for. Whether is it was embedding technology in the wall for a clean (and easy-to-clean) aesthetic or incorporating custom graphics to showcase Minto’s history, DIRTT could deliver. The Minto Office isn’t a one-size-fits-all space. By leveraging our approach to construction, Minto incorporated residential design touches, created spaces that support diversity, and used prefabricated elements to streamline installation without sacrificing quality.

Regardless of the locality of the project, DIRTT is a predictable, reliable, high-quality product. There is such a degree of design control possible, it meant that we were able to match door, wall, and casework finishes with furniture and other elements.
