Modern medical facility built utilizing prefab construction for exam room.

In response to COVID-19, many health systems across North America will require renovations or new/temporary facilities to meet overwhelming patient care needs. Pigott and DIRTT are ready to partner with healthcare providers to rapidly design, manufacture and install a variety of healthcare interiors. DIRTT’s approach to healthcare construction allows interiors to be manufactured in 21 days or less in controlled factories with extreme precision. Components are shipped to site for a clean and seamless install. The result is unprecedented speed, allowing healthcare facilities to get up and running faster to service patients.

DIRTT is designed for disassembly, ensuring quicker maintenance and easy adjustments as conditions change. Although they can function as permanent interiors, DIRTT solutions can be repurposed to support different requirements in the future. This secures your investment and gives you the ability to adapt to changing needs.
