As part of the first phase of the Hunterís Point Redevelopment Plan, a Project Frog solution has been selected for the evolving community. Situated on the edge of the bay facing San Francisco's iconic skyline, the LEED certified facility will serve as demonstration space for a range of community-oriented uses, including public meetings and events, as well as arts and arts education, job training, and recreation.
A revolutionary new way to build.
With YKK AP as a strategic partner, Project Frog can now incorporate the highest quality energy-efficient fenestration systems available in North America and compliment their own stringent standards for environmental stewardship and quality. With added strategic partner Erie Architectural Products, the supply chain for fenestration systems is simplified through the use of pre-glazed and unitized systems for building-kit standardization and rapid on-site installation.
"We are committed to aggregating the best materials on the market for our building projects and YKK AP is just one example of our ability to deliver on our promise," said Ash Notaney vice president, supply chain at Project Frog. "YKK AP's longtime environmental philosophy and its products align perfectly with our goal of building better, greener, faster, and smarter. Not only is this a strategic move for both Project Frog and YKK AP, it also represents a transformation within the construction industry by using technology to advance the building."
High tech design, low tech assembly.
Project Frog was founded on the notion that there is a smarter way to build. Regular construction, with few exceptions, has remained largely unchanged for centuries. While products may have improved in the last 100 years, the process to deliver a building is nearly identical. Project Frog is changing that.
An innovative approach to building uses an easy to assemble kit-of-parts flexible for a wide range of uses.
Frog buildings are comprised of a set of proprietary products integrated with best-in-class components from partners, resulting in bright, healthy, and inspiring spaces that are energy efficient, environmentally responsible, faster to build, and cost competitive.
By systematizing the kit, process and product delivery, Project Frog has introduced a level of precision never before achievable in construction. And this precision unlocks a world of unprecedented possibilities: through advanced performance modeling, Project Frog has achieved an unprecedented level of understanding of how their buildings will perform, in any location. And this in turn allows owners to optimize a building kit to match their desired performance. Through high-tech fabrication of components, Frog buildings are easy to install and are delivered on time and on budget.
