Major architectural and structural precast producers Clark Pacific and Wells Concrete have entered a partnership to support nationwide availability of Infinite Facade, a prefabricated concrete panel and glazing solution the former company unveiled in 2019. 

"We are excited to partner with Wells Concrete to form the Facades Consortium Group and through our shared vision, bring to market a single source for state-of-the-art, standardized systems that redefine how owners, developers and design teams approach the building envelope," says Clark Pacific General Manager of Facades Tom Anderson. "We've had incredible feedback from architects, developers and owners on the West Coast and are looking forward to bringing the same value to projects in other parts of the country."

"Our partnership with Clark Pacific further strengthens our commitment to innovation and delivering a high-quality, leading-edge building envelope system," adds Dave Holsteen, vice president of Product Development at Minnesota-based Wells Concrete. "The Infinite Facade is a game changer and our company's reach will help bring the incredible benefits of an innovative, one-of-a-kind system to architects and developers in new markets."

The building envelope is one of the most complex aspects of design due to code requirements and coordination with multiple trades, Clark Pacific notes. Infinite Facade solves these issues with a standard frame and connections that meet and, in some cases, exceed CA Title 24, water, vapor, sound and fire code requirements while giving architects and designers the flexibility to focus on aesthetics. With a single source for the complete system, including windows, Infinite Facade eliminates the need for coordination across multiple trades, imparts budget certainty, and affords owners the simplicity of working with one provider to manage warranties.
