While the world begins to look for alternative resources and fuels, the construction industry is no different. As a whole, the construction industry uses more raw materials than any other industry on the planet. The excess from construction projects fills a quarter of our landfills and accounts for 25 to 40 percent of the world’s total carbon emissions. This is why it’s important to find sustainable, environmentally-friendly ways to build.
One way that BCI Construction helps combat the excess often seen in the construction industry is with our partnership with DIRTT Wall Panels.
Why We Chose to Get DIRTTy
We see it far too often: clients know they should be looking for more sustainable ways to build. However, the desire to build better is often outweighed by cost, timeline, and simplicity. Sure, you may want to do what is best for the environment, but what if that means missing deadlines and blowing your budget?
Completely contrary to what their name implies, DIRTT is a manufacturing company that creates pre-manufactured modular wall systems to promote green building solutions. At BCI, we use and encourage our clients to use DIRTT as a simple and economical solution. Choosing pre-manufactured materials from DIRTT means virtually no on-site waste. The components are made based on the specific designs for your space and can be disassembled and altered with little effort. Even if your business needs grow or your plans change, DIRTT walls can keep up.
All the components that create a DIRTT structure can be repurposed, meaning you can make changes to your space without throwing materials away. Best of all, if you should need all new DIRTT walls in the future, you can donate your all system to be reused. It’s one of those uncommon instances when the right thing to do for the planet and the best choice for your bottom line are the same choice!
These modular wall systems are some of St. Cloud’s greenest solutions as the entire system is recyclable, rebuildable, and easily modified to operate in completely new fashions. It is also the only interior construction provider that gives customers a Life Cycle Assessment and an Environmental Product Declaration.
