Prefab Building Performance

 

Prefabricated Buildings Engineered to Perform

Engineered for Performance:

Project Frog designs and engineers building environments that put the health, wellness, and performance of human beings first while being energy efficient and delivered in approximately half the time of conventional, stick-built construction practices. Project Frog's LEED-ready, Pre-Check, and CHPS-ready high-performance building component systems pose an advantage for education, healthcare, retail, and other industries nationwide, including:

  • sustainable materials

  • energy efficiency and utility savings

  • improved responsiveness to site and climate

  • decreased time onsite for less disruption

  • higher insulated walls and ceilings

  • flexible wall system and configurations

Offer a better interior experience for occupants.

Achieve maximum energy efficiency, thermal comfort, improved air quality, and optimized sound and light. 

Air

Accommodate a range of mechanical systems with enhanced filtration, continuous ventilation, and operable windows to ensure clean air and natural ventilation.

  • semi-passive, high-efficiency HVAC unit

  • continuous outside air 

  • insulated roof R-Value 40

  • wall assemblies R-Value 20.5

  • MERV 13 filtration

  • high ceilings: 11’-6” – 15’-8” AFF

Sound

Mitigate sound intrusion with insulated roof and wall panels. Eliminate the need for drop ceilings with an acoustic ceiling deck offering a high-noise reduction coefficient.

  • insulated roof panel

  • wall panel assembly 45 STC rating

  • demising wall assembly 50 STC rating

  • acoustic ceiling dec 45 STC rating

  • ceiling noise reduction coefficient .6

  • roof assembly max background noise 40 dBA

Thermal Comfort

Continuous insulation and circulation offer occupants flexibility and control of thermal comfort.

  • R-30 wall insulation

  • R-33 insulated sloped roof

  • low-emitting LED lights

  • low conductivity windows

  • optional individually

  • controlled VRF

Daylighting

Harvest daylight with extensive glazing and photosensitive LED fixtures to ensure the optimal balance of natural and artificial light throughout the day while saving costs and energy.

  • 75% daylight autonomy

  • integrated glare control

  • daylight harvesting

  • high-performance glazing

Engineered to Last

The industrialized construction process and Project Frog's building platform allow for more adaptable design options including increased structural integrity for protection from wind, heavy snow loads, and earthquake damage.

Light-gauge steel buildings offer natural resistance to fire with many owners realizing additional savings on building insurance.

Engineered for Manufacturing:

Prefabrication takes place in a controlled environment optimized for manufacturing and design & construction processes. Fabrication is more tightly integrated to capture efficiencies and offer quality assurance controls. Conventional construction depends on varying schedules and skill levels of independent contractors that could result in poor craftsmanship and quality.

 

The optimization of the prefabrication process may cut material loss caused by errors and accidental damage by 50% compared to traditional construction. Implementation of lean production principles also offers better inventory control while leftover materials are reused or recycled rather than sent to landfills or requiring the processing of additional virgin materials.

Consistency of factory production results in tighter joints and better air filtration to offer improved wall insulation and energy efficiency increases. 

Engineered for Transport:

Dense urban areas, regions with short build seasons, and remote sites pose unique issues for traditional construction like transporting materials, constricted sites, and crew accessibility. The engineering of prefabricated building components by incorporating shipping practices ensures prudent and efficient transportation that offers easier site access, shipping and fuel cost savings, and pollution prevention.

Engineered for Assembly:

Engineered for building assembly ensures a faster and safer environment for workers and the community. Fabricating the building components offsite reduces site crews and traffic during installation resulting in fewer injuries, emissions, and environmental pollutants.

 

A comprehensive installation guide along with onsite governance, and an extensive, qualified network of skilled general contractors ensures your building is assembled correctly and free of defects.
