Design Automation for Prefab Construction

Tuesday, April 11, 2017
Free and open to all. BYO Lunch.


For architects, prefab design can box you in.  Many modular systems are inflexible and can be hard to work with to meet the desired design intent.  In addition, manufacturing limitations often result in a lower quality look and feel. Fortunately, there is a new way to design for prefab – a cloud-based design automation engine for mass-customization, enabling architects to quickly configure and finish permit-ready building designs.

Join Project Frog for a presentation on this new tool that puts architects back in the driver’s seat and features:  instant structural validation of a Type-V core and shell building kit, flexibility to meet a wide array of design needs, seamless integration with Revit, the ability to deliver portfolio-worthy projects in a fraction of the time of stick-built, and the ease of working in the cloud.

Learning Objectives:

After completion of this course, participants will understand how design automation for prefab construction can help solve typical design challenges in Type V commercial construction, including specific strategies for:
1. Instantly validating structural design across various CA seismic conditions and geographies
2. Achieving better daylight autonomy in prefabricated buildings
3. Meeting building flexibility demands for challenging programs like activity-based learning, and
4. Integrating model outputs within a Revit-based workflow
