The new partnership between Color Art and DIRTT Environmental Solutions is not only a merger of products and services, but of vision and mission. DIRTT’s custom solutions of architectural walls are built on the principles of reduce and reuse. As the largest manufacturer of modular office walls in North America based on sales, DIRTT is positioned as a market and thought leader in the new design of sustainable solutions for office interiors.
“Color Art is committed to its customers and environment,” said Gary Mindel, president of Color Art Office Interiors. “With nearly one-eighth of the man-made CO2 in the atmosphere coming from the creation of building materials like cement, glass, concrete and drywall, Color Art assumes an environmental responsibility to offer eco-friendly alternatives such as DIRTT modular office wall solutions.”
Drywall is harmful in landfills because of the hydrogen-sulfide gas that is released when drywall is wet. Unlike drywall, DIRTT’s walls are made of medium density fibreboard, or MDF, that can be repurposed and maintained for the life of the building and even beyond.
Using several recyclable materials such as glass, wood and aluminum DIRTT’s architectural walls can be designed to any company’s specifications. With the ability to add custom elements such as writing boards and even wine coolers built right into the wall, these are not traditional painted, standing walls. DIRTT movable office walls also give companies flexibility during restructuring or relocation. The ability to reuse products can save customers money down the road because they can be reconfigured as needs change.
“These custom projects are ideal for any business because of the combination of environmental sustainability with business strategy. Faster move-in, agile power, data built into walls and the ability to move to suit changes in the organization, all without sending waste to the landfill are a few reasons why we are proud to present this new offering to our customers,” said Mindel.
In addition to DIRTT’s architectural solutions, Color Art is excited to work with DIRTT’s groundbreaking ICE software, one of the main contributors to DIRTT’s success. This software eliminates human error and facilitates real-time communication among all project stakeholders, regardless of location.
As the largest office interiors dealer in the Midwest, Color Art carries an extensive product offering with environmental benefits.
