Gosling co-founded DIRTT in 2004 with the idea of an efficient, agile, and sustainable way to build interior spaces and went on to have immeasurable impact on DIRTT’s growth and success.

Gosling created the original concept of an agile construction system that serves as the backbone for all DIRTT solutions. With the ability to adapt and repurpose DIRTT spaces, sustainability has been a core tenet of DIRTT’s value since inception. Gosling is the inventor behind most of our product patents and some of our most impactful innovations.
