Project Frog designs, develops, and delivers integrated software and building platforms throughout North America. Their customer solutions combine cloud-based software, distributed manufacturing networks, and building kits that both accelerate industry digital transformation and industrialized construction.
The construction industry is losing trillions of dollars each year due to low productivity and slow digital adoption. Underlying this is a lack of an industry-wide data framework that causes data translation issues and data loss, creating vast inefficiencies and quality assurance problems.
How Project Frog solved it with Forge.
In a first step to address these industry challenges, Project Frog is simplifying the path from design to fabrication. They utilize the Forge platform to pull together disparate Autodesk® software and services to build an automation workflow linking design, documentation, manufacturing, and project delivery. Project Frog’s proprietary software empowers architects to customize site-specific, prefabricated building components through a centralized data flow via a web-based configuration tool integration with Autodesk®Revit®, Fusion Lifecycle™, and Fusion 360™. Impact highlights from Project Frog’s building platforms include the following:
- Project stakeholders can model and track project development from early design through project delivery to the job site, increasing workflow productivity and significantly decreasing project time.
- Designers working with the Project Frog platform can significantly decrease the workload in readying a design for manufacturing, reducing time required to develop fabrication level detail by as much as 70%.
- Project Frog’s role as developer of software and component building kits empowers the firm to manage data and workflow, accelerating digital transformation in the construction industry.
“To grow our business, we need to be able to quickly move buildings from design to the shop floor, and then deliver to the jobsite. Forge helps us have faster engineering workflows. It helps us build design to fabrication tools that cut weeks off of the process of adapting a custom building kit to a project site.”
