Too cool for sustainable school
Frog Design’s Modular, LEED certified school:
Frog is a company headquartered in San Francisco doing innovative things with modular construction.
No, scratch that. Project Frog is reinventing school construction.
Most of the company’s environmentally friendly designs are pre-set for LEED certification– it’s simply a matter of planning as to what level of LEED is sought.
A standard Frog building has an overall environmental impact 1/10th as great as a standard building, and generates 1/12th the greenhouse gas.
Project Frog currently designs for schools, as well as healthcare, retail and office facilities.
The company’s designs are based on “proprietary products integrated with best-in-class components” from its partners- which, when integrated during final construction, become healthy, bright and inspiring places which are environmentally responsible.
They are also quite energy efficient, and are able to be built more quickly, at a lower cost.
Not only are Frog’s modular designs energy efficient, but they are also designed for very low VOC out- gassing, and designed to optimize natural day-lighting. In some instances their designs become net-zero when paired with an advanced, super-insulated pre-fabricated wall panel system.
