Conversations with the Facade Squad

Join us once a month for quick 30 minute conversations on all things facades. We promise this won’t be boring, just two guys that love to talk about facades, materials and design. Every month we will focus on a different topic, drill down to the nitty-gritty details and at the end, hopefully you had a good time and learn something new. We look forward to seeing you in the sessions (don’t worry video will be optional) for a great conversation. Why Attend?
  • Learn something new about facades
  • Be part of a great conversation
  • Collaborate with other design professionals
  • Have fun | Laugh a little

Free Webinar: Simplifying the building envelope with Infinite Facade

You can now watch on demand our discussion on simplifying building envelope design with the Infinite Facade, a single source building envelope solution. You will learn:

  • 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

The building envelope is the most difficult part of the building to design; reasonably so, as design teams are expected to meet client and aesthetic expectations while meeting performance standards and regulations.

Target Value Design

Taking advantage of the Target Value Design (TVD) process, Infinite Facade encompasses three main categories that streamline the design and budgeting development, enabling rapid design iterations and ensuring budget and schedule certainty.

Project Goal Chart

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.

Precast Finish Spectrum
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 allows for an endless number of geometric patterns and reveals to be incorporated into the design. Other accent materials, such as metal panels, can be factory-mounted to the exterior veneer, further increasing design and material options.

Windows

We source high quality and proven exterior window systems for projects 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:

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

Research

Based on FMI research, the building envelope is the most difficult part of the building to design. Reasonably so, the design must strike the right balance between aesthetics and meeting performance standards and regulations, while satisfying client expectations and budget. Infinite Facade eliminates the need to design what is behind the facade, because it is a standardized integrated system, leaving more time to focus on the design possibilities.
