Infinite Facade™ redefines how owners and design teams approach the facade system. It is a single-source solution for the complete building envelope that meets or exceeds code requirements, utilizes a standard frame and connections, while giving design teams complete design flexibility.
Our standardized panel is your canvas, giving design teams the freedom to focus on the aesthetics.
- Integrated scope for the complete weather barrier system
- Windows installed off-site
- Factory-installed insulation
- Manufactured off-site
- Aesthetically flexible system
- Reduced schedule
- Single point of contact through occupancy & warranty
- Drywall ready
The complete building envelope manufactured offsite…with design flexibility
Infinite Facade™ paves the way for the design team to take advantage of prefabricated systems for reduced costs, increased efficiency and less risk, all without compromising design.
This aesthetically flexible system is standardized and prefabricated, and the exterior finish options are limitless. In addition to the wide variety of colors and textures currently available in traditional precast, other materials can be cast into the exterior veneer – such as brick, terracotta and stone.
Facade Squad with Jim and Dan!
Presented by the Facades Consortium Group, the Facade Squad invites you to join Jim and Dan once a month for quick 30 minute conversations on all things facades. This won’t be boring; just two guys that love to talk about facades, materials and design.
Every month will focus on a different topic, drill down to the nitty-gritty details, and at the end, hopefully you had a good time and learned something new.
The Facade Squad look forward to seeing you in the sessions (don’t worry video will be optional) for a great conversation.
If you missed our recent discussion on simplifying the building envelope with the Infinite Facade™, a single source building envelope solution, you can now watch it on demand. We discussed:
- How a single source solution envelope reduces risk for both design teams and owners
- Target Value Design process – meeting the project’s vision to the budget
- Strategies to consider for prefabricated envelope systems
- Design Options and Considerations
We designed and tested our system to meet or exceed these standards:
- Air Infiltration ASTM E283
- Static Pressure Water Resistance ASTM E331
- Dynamic Pressure Water Resistance AAMA 501.1
- Structural Performance ASTM E330
- Seismic Movement (Interstory) AAMA 501.4
- Sound Transmission ASTM E90
- In-situ Water Test AAMA 503.03
- Fire Resistance Rating ASTM E119, NFPA 285
- Title 24
We source high quality and proven exterior window systems for the project and install at the manufacturing facility, further reducing jobsite impacts. We have formed partnerships with some of the top window manufacturers in the country for solutions specific to Infinite Facade™.
The panel and the window system are engineered as a single solution. The design and detailing of the window connections are done as part of the exterior cladding package so details are coordinated and included in one exterior enclosure submittal.
Our Approach – Target Value Design
Target Value Design
Taking advantage of the Target Value Design (TVD) process, Infinite Facade™ encompasses three main design categories that streamline the design and budgeting development, enabling rapid design iterations and ensuring budget and schedule certainty.
