Infinite Facade™

Rethinking the Building Envelope

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.

Clark Pacific's Infinite Facade, significantly reduces risk for the owner and architect.

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.

Product Highlights:

  • 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 for the warranty
  • Lightweight
  • Resilient
  • Drywall Options

Design Where it Matters

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.

The use of form liners also allows for an infinite number of geometric patterns and reveals to be incorporated into the design. 

Terracotta

Stone

Metallic (Panel, Faux Metal, ACM)

Brick

Tile

GFRC

Standard frame, fire safing, insulation, barrier wall and thermally broke windows, integrated into one system.

Prefabricated wall panel components

We remove multiple trades from onsite envelope construction by combining the facade scope and manufacturing the system in a controlled environment for better quality and consistency. 

Benefits of prefabricated building envelopes:

  • Reduced site impacts
  • Less construction waste
  • Higher quality control
  • Accelerated construction schedule
  • Budget certainty
  • Less risk for all stakeholders

Standard Finishes Guide

We offer a wide range of standard colors, forms and textures or a combination for our integrated envelope systems. The Standard Finishes Guide showcases our standard finishes and budget categories.

Windows

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.

This provides:

  • Installation performed at ground level in controlled conditions
  • Window testing is performed in factory prior to arriving on site
  • Factory installed windows allow for faster enclosure schedules
  • Number of trades on construction site is reduced
  • Eliminates the need for material staging on site
  • Panel openings are shipped to the site weather-tight, allowing other trades to start sooner
  • Eliminates need for temporary enclosures at window openings

Clark Pacific's Glumac energy report shows energy efficiency in prefabricated facade systems

Glumac Energy Model Report

This report documents an envelope system study conducted comparing the Infinite Facade envelope system with thermally broken windows in four (4) different climate zones. It was compared with two (2) other typical envelope systems as well as the California Title 24 baseline envelope system.

The following four (4) climate zones were utilized in this study:

  • Los Angeles
  • San Francisco
  • Sacramento
  • Seattle


The following three (3) window-to-wall ratios were studied:

  • 40%
  • 55%
  • 70%.

Collaborative Delivery | The Process to Deliver the Vision

Collaborative Delivery

Framework to deliver a successful prefabrication strategy that meets design and performance goals with budget and schedule certainty. 
 

Collaborative Delivery is our process to deliver the vision through a streamlined design process with focus on the Owner’s values, while meeting the aesthetic, performance and budget goals.

Early engagement is key, beginning with schematic design our envelope experts will walk the team through identification of solutions and materials that work within the targeted budget, while designing in concert with real time estimating.  

Our methodology incorporates pivotal milestones, requiring 100% buy in from the Owner and design teams before moving to the next design phase.
