Mercer Zimmerman is the New DIRTT Partner in Iowa

Mercer Zimmerman is proud to announce that effective October 31, 2022, we are the official DIRTT Partner in the state of Iowa.

DIRTT’s completely custom solutions, powered by their ICE® software, allow us to work with our customers to create entire projects. Sizes, shapes, angles, finishes, and supports are designed to exact specifications, allowing us to create environments that support your team, easily integrate into your space, and fully reflect your culture.

Business Owners & End Users

Mercer Zimmerman takes pride in providing a different experience by working directly with owners and end users to create spaces that drive tangible business results. As Iowa’s DIRTT Partner we will be able to enhance our ability to do this, by working as a specialty construction consultant on your project team.

We can work with you to build flexible spaces in any type of building that reflects your goals, brand, culture, and technology needs. And with DIRTT’s intelligent software program, you can experience your space before it’s built, in interactive virtual 3D, allowing you to make informed decisions and approve plans with confidence.

General Contractors

As a DIRTT Partner, Mercer Zimmerman is a specialty subcontractor that covers multiple trades, working under you to oversee the DIRTT order, sequencing, and installation.

We will assist you and other trades deliver appropriate bids reflecting fewer hours and less material. Most of the interior, walls, power, networks, cabinets, and doors are built off-site, with the components built based on measurements taken on-site just days before they arrive. This allows the trades putting in the mechanical, lighting, ceiling, and flooring to work in a clean, wide-open space with little material waste and fewer journeyman hours. All components are installed quickly and easily, with little to no waste, resulting in cost savings on material waste and management.

Architects & Designers

Our DIRTT team can help you create your vision while maintaining complete design freedom. We work as Design Assist, helping you value engineer and determine constructability and best uses of DIRTT.

We feed your drawings from CAD or BIM/Revit into ICE ®, which translates them to DIRTT. The platform allows you to explore and update your design in real-time 3D, collaborating with your clients anywhere in the world. The components themselves respond to your intent, so you can design a wall with power outlets, several finishes, and an integrated TV, and it will automatically price itself.

Design details translate into factory data, then into installation instructions. All pricing is to the penny, based on the amount of each material used, eliminating the extra cost for the complexity of design, while enabling a completely custom solution. Shop drawings, elevation details, and hardware schedules are all automated, and the data needed for constructability, cost, and schedule are included right from the start.

We look forward to making a difference for businesses in Iowa by helping them build better with DIRTT.
