Sustainable building kit integrated into learning center construction

GE Crotonville Learning Center (John F. Welch Leadership Development Center) is piloting the Project Frog kit construction technology at a new building expected to be completed later this year.  GE is deploying these sustainable construction methods and investing in the company.  …

…   “Project Frog’s technology improves traditional building construction methods by combining semi-custom designs with a pre-engineered kit of energy-efficient building components.

This enables higher quality, more environmentally sustainable, faster and cheaper construction.

Through advanced performance modeling, Project Frog analyzes how its buildings will perform in each location, allowing owners to optimize a building kit to match their desired performance.

The kits are delivered to project sites ready for assembly, and typically take one to six months to construct —less than half the time required for traditional construction.

Project Frog’s buildings use at least 25 percent less energy than the strictest building codes in the United States, and as much as 80 percent less energy in certain parts of the country.

Project Frog manufactures its commercial building systems for educational and government organizations, healthcare offices and retail spaces.”   …

Project Frog is on a mission to revolutionize the way buildings are created by applying technology to overcome the inefficiencies of traditional construction. The result is a structure that is measurably greener and significantly smarter; brighter, healthier spaces that inspire better performance from the people who occupy them.
