Canada-based DIRTT Environmental Solutions Opens Co-Headquarters in Plano, TX

DIRTT Environmental Solutions, a global firm that is involved in industrialized construction and design for adaptable interior environments, has selected Plano, TX, a part of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, as its co-headquarters.

The company, which started in Calgary, AB Canada in 2003 and has grown to more than 900 employees, will share executive leadership, sales operations and other corporate functions between the Calgary and Plano locations.

“As the Dallas-Fort Worth region continues to experience a surge in high-profile corporate relocations and unprecedented overall economic growth, we see this as a strategic opportunity to join the vibrant North Texas business community,” said Jennifer Warawa, DIRTT’s Dallas-based Chief Commercial Officer.

DIRTT’s Dallas co-headquarters, located in Plano’s Legacy West business and cultural district, will also serve as a hands-on, “living lab” design center where architects, designers, contractors, and business community members can experience the company’s products.
