As your local DIRTT experts and partner every step of the way, we act as peer collaborators for your team of design professionals, general contractors, and other sub-trades. We serve as your design assist consultant during preconstruction before transitioning to subcontractor as the design is manufactured and installed.
Of course, our team is ready should you need changes after move-in. Our mission is to help everyone involved in your project benefit from the many cost, schedule, and performance benefits of DIRTT construction. That’s why it’s called Doing It Right This Time. It will be a surprisingly enjoyable 21st century experience!

Surrounded by a blue collar family, Taylor had tools in her hands when she was young. She wanted to understand how pieces fit together and was always eager to help fix anything in need of repair. Drafting and design came easy to her in high school, and she carried her growing knowledge to college where she graduated from Southwestern Illinois College with a degree in Computer Aided Drafting and Design. She then took her knowledge to her first industry job as a draftsman for a custom metal fabrication shop in Saint Louis. There, she designed, fabricated, and managed for four years. Her determination to always learn something new brought her to where she is today. Taylor is excited to design DIRTT sustainable solutions.
