DIRTT (TSX:DRT) and its Middle East partner NMG Solutions will install a two-story structure with state-of-the-art medical interior in less than four days at Arab Health Congress and Exhibition, reinforcing DIRTT’s continued expansion into the international healthcare market.

The high profile event, January 25 – 28, is a connection point for DIRTT to show prominent industry leaders the speed, quality and incredible functionality of its solutions first-hand. The show’s United Arab Emirates location is a strategic business bridge between the East and West for DIRTT, which continues to expand international business operations while the Middle East experiences rapid growth across the healthcare sector.

DIRTT and NMG have completed more than 50 projects in the Middle East to date. With the addition of a DIRTT Green Learning Center set to open this spring in London, DIRTT now has business operations in India, Singapore, England, the United States and Canada.

“The Middle East is very receptive to new ideas and better ways to build,” says DIRTT CEO Mogens Smed. “Our construction method offers far better quality, is faster, and it eliminates uncertainties around time, money and the end result. It also leaves you with a space that remains sustainable over time, which ultimately is every client’s greatest asset.”

At Arab Health, DIRTT and NMG’s multi-level booth will exhibit interior healthcare solutions such as capacitive touch walls that control medical equipment, touch-triggered cabinetry, wall-integrated technology and medical gases, Corning® Willow® Glass with custom graphics, micro-perforated acoustic ceiling tiles and custom laser-cut metal railings. The free-standing, multi-level booth will be constructed with DIRTT’s timber frame solution, which blends traditional European craftsmanship with the speed, customization and flexibility of modern manufacturing.

It’s the first time a structure with full custom interior of this size and caliber will be constructed in such a compressed timeframe. The record-breaking build will be documented at www.DIRTT.net/arabhealth from start to finish for the public to witness, with completion in time to welcome visitors when the show opens January 25.

“By building this structure in just four days, we’re showing something that literally has never been done before and we’re capturing it for all to see and understand how we do it,” says Smed. “Healthcare construction is very sophisticated and very stringent in its requirements, so if we can achieve this in a healthcare environment, we can do this anywhere. This is the future of construction.”
