DIRTT GLC Progress

We have made some huge strides in the past few weeks with installing our new GLC. This is the first big project for the Cincy install team and how fitting that it would be in our own space! Our RJE DIRTT team has done such a great job, and we cannot wait for them to finish the space and show off our brand new GLC!
Bringing in the first wave of DIRTT product!

We are in LOVE....with our new floors!

Our brand new flooring from Patcraft has been installed and we are over the moon with excitement! At NeoCon, Patcraft introduced a new line of mixed materials flooring that introduced carpet and resilient flooring that were the same height. With the different materials being the same height, it allows for the materials to be mixed together, to create fun, unique patterns that once were not able to be achieved. After seeing it in the Patcraft showroom in Chicago, we just had to have it in our new space! Check out what we did. We are especially excited about how we were able to bring in the Knoll red with the RJE orange into the space, thus creating a more branding space to showcase for our clients.
Let us know what you think of our new flooring look!

New Year Equals New Changes!

With every new year, comes new changes and we are making quite a few here in Cincy! Our new year has started with booms, bangs, and clangs. We have been making huge strides on our new showroom/GLC space. Because of the luxury apartments that are going seven floors above us and construction projects on the main building level that our showroom is located on, we have decided to go through a face lift ourselves!
 
Our new demising wall is finished, our kitchen has been gutted, and the dated carpet has been torn up. Check out some of our progress photos below from the past few weeks.
Stay tuned for even more updates as we progress through the process!

DIRTT trip to Calgary

Last week our DIRTT Champion Stacy Frank hosted architects and designers from GBBN on a factory tour of the DIRTT facilities in Calgary, Canada. The trip was spent seeing, exploring and learning about the DIRTT solution, sustainability, manufacturing, along with much, much more!
 
Some of the things the group learned included:
  • We are Doing It Right This Time, because last time with conventional construction, the computer power didn't exist to go from design, to real-time 3D, to specifications, to the production floor. Last time environmental sustainability wasn’t tied to the bottom line. Last time there was no such thing as being able to affordably manufacture individualized spaces. This time, DIRTT is giving clients and the interior construction industry a new way to Build better. This time we are doing it right.
  • DIRTT interiors are suitable for commercial offices, schools, hospitality, retail, and most areas of healthcare
  • Custom prefab means DIRTT clients can choose a new or existing space, large or small, in the best location for their own clients and employees – no matter the base building itself. DIRTT ensures the technology, aesthetics, agility, comfort and function of the 21st century is on the inside, where it counts.

Cincy Showroom Update

The Cincy showroom is in full swing construction mode! Because of the luxury apartments that are going seven floors above us and construction projects on the main building level that our showroom is located on, we have decided to go through a face lift ourselves! We are in the process of knocking down walls, ripping up carpet and re-creating our space. Check out some of the progress that we have been made lately. Stay tuned for more updates as we dive deeper into the renovation!

Workplace Trend: Height Adjustable Tables

Freestanding height-adjustable tables play an increasingly important role in contemporary office planning, offering flexibility, user control and ergonomic performance.
Continued studies prove that height-adjustable tables have a positive impact not only on an individual's health and well-being, but on companies as a whole, who are seeing an increase in morale and decrease in employee absenteeism. Knoll does an excellent job at exploring this concept more in one of their white papers here.  
 
We have a few height adjustable table in our showroom and will actually be implementing more height adjustable tables in our new showroom re-design (spoiler!) that is about to start. The table makes an immediate impact on our worker's health and is a great showcase piece to our perspective clients looking to make strides in their own workplaces.
 
 
Since height adjustable tables are a growing trend in the workplace, here are 3 tips to help set up an ergonomic station with a height adjustable table:
  1. Your table height or input devices should be just below elbow height when sitting or standing
  2. Monitors should be at eye level and an arm's length away 
  3. While standing, distribute your weight evenly
 
For more information, to see a sample and to explore this new way of working more, please contact our showroom! We'd be happy to assist you!
