The Project Frog Story
Transforming the Chaos of Design and Construction
The building industry faces a daunting issue. How to replace aging built infrastructure with sustainable, high energy performance, state-of-the-art buildings, at a lower price point and twice as fast as traditional construction methods.
“Autodesk’s Forge Fund investment in Project Frog is expected to put into place a more seamless industrialized construction workflow connecting design to fabrication,” said Nicolas Mangon, Vice President, Autodesk AEC Business Strategy and Marketing. “The building industry is beginning to look a lot more like manufacturing than traditional construction, and this investment offers significant opportunity to improve productivity, resulting in decreased risk and increased profit margins for construction teams and projects.”
A Relentless Pursuit
Project Frog worked relentlessly to solve this issue by scaling from part-level to building-wide solutions, moving from data point to dataflow, and instance to systems. Project Frog’s extensive experience implementing Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DfMA), clients in public works, corporate build programs, and healthcare are discovering real value. DfMA solutions, physical building products for purchase, and specialty architectural lighting offer an inclusive package that delivers better outcomes for all spaces.
Project Frog Through The Years
Extensive experience developing scalable and flexible Industrialized Construction solutions through an integrated building systems product and technology approach
Commercial Launch of KitConnect
KitConnect, Project Frog’s DfMA software solution, promotes Building Product Awareness in design by providing a structured exchange environment from "Model to Manufacturing" to drive scalable building solutions.
Celebrating a Milestone
Clients are realizing benefits with more than 100 buildings complete.
The Marriage of Parts & Technology
The Kit-of-Parts platform encourages repeatability allowing clients to create an infinite variety of buildings. Each component is designed for manufacturing and easy assembly (DfMA) on site.
One Product, Multiple Applications
Clients can choose from a menu of solutions allowing for one building to be used for multiple applications with a myriad of options for customization
Expansion and a Celebration
An expanded building catalog offers components designed for commercial, medical, and education sectors with a standardized set of rules and SKUs.
Project Frog built the Golden Gate pavilion in 6 months, to celebrate the celebration 75th year anniversary.
Flexibility and Customization
A new building-block approach offers clients more flexibility to choose and customize individual pieces and dimensional changes.
Repeatable, Sustainable, Simplified
Development of repeatable building components and simplified logistics help with the construction of a high-performance classroom in 6 days. Clients have the option for net-zero energy buildings in different cliamtes and locations with more sustainability features.
The Journey Begins
Project Frog begins the Industrialized Construction journey with the goals of providing Flexible Responses to On-going Growth.
