Empowering your team to be as efficient as possible.
The size of the building and the type of panel will determine installation duration. Usually, it will take 75% less time to enclose a building with panels when compared to conventional construction. For a building enclosure schedule that has a 180-day duration, using traditional methods can reduce the duration to 45 days.
A preliminary project review is needed to determine how much time can be saved using fully finished panelization. Contact Mammoth for a preliminary project review and estimate of schedule savings.
There are three key phases to a panel project: Design, Fabrication and Installation. This process should start at least six months prior to the time panels need to be installed on site. This allows for appropriate design planning, submittals, approvals, and fabrication to take place before the enclosure panels need to be installed.
Prefab panel erection takes place quickly. On average, it is 85% quicker when compared with traditional construction.
Panel Tech Group (PTG) is an affiliate of the StoPanel Technology network. Mammoth Prefab manufactures StoPanels on behalf of PTG, which falls under the Mammoth name.
No air or water will penetrate the panel. A continuous air and vapor barrier is installed on the face, perimeter and openings for every panel. A silicone sealing system is used at every panel-to-panel, and panel-to-other construction joint. Silicone sealants are also used at fenestrations, such as windows.
Additionally, the entire assembly is tested for moisture and air intrusion prior to fabrication and on-site.
Mammoth panels can be installed on a variety of building types and sizes, such as:
However, for structural support, there are some limitations. Cladding panels need to bypass the edge of the slab and the edge of the roof. Buildings that are designed for the walls to be built from slab to slab do not work well with wall panels. Contact Mammoth to see if your project is a fit.
Mammoth panels are versatile and flexible in design. The Mammoth team will work closely with your design team to achieve an aesthetic that matches your original design intent.
Mammoth panels utilize a track system with adjustable clips to attach wall panels to the structure. Slight adjustments will need to be made to the pour stop to accommodate the support system. Exterior wall panels have size limitations but are seamlessly adhered to the face of the structure to achieve a uniform surface.
Mammoth builds panels that meet or exceed the newest building code requirements. Mammoth provides project specific thermal analysis for the details and fully fabricated panels. For information on a specific system, contact the Mammoth team.
Prefabrication decreases onsite time. The fast installation of exterior wall panels means the building envelope is closed quicker, so the interior scope can begin sooner and not be affected by weather delays. While the panels are being constructed in the shop off-site, on-site the building's foundation is being built simultaneously. This cuts construction time. A shorter schedule allows general contractors to complete more projects with less manpower, automatically lowering costs.
A building that can be delivered one, two or even six months early can start producing revenue sooner. Additionally, fully developed, single source building enclosure panels save on several ancillary construction costs that are not always readily apparent.

The earlier in the process, the better. Mammoth can provide details and insights early in a project lifecycle that will eliminate any need for re-design and ultimately save time and money.
With certain styles of buildings, Mammoth systems adapt easily and can be incorporated later in the design process.

Wall panels can be up to 16’ 0” wide and as long as 48’ 0”. The ideal size for prefab enclosure panels is around 12’ 0” high by 24’ 0” long. Project requirements, aesthetics and structural constraints will dictate the reasonable size for panels.
Fully finished façade panels are produced in an off-site factory. Panels are shipped to the project site on flatbed trailers.
There are two types of fire ratings that may be required for wall panels. Panels can be constructed to meet a one- or two-hour rating. This type of construction is required when buildings are near each other or other fire issues need to be addressed. Another concern is for the fire rating of the exterior cladding in mid- and high-rise buildings.
Wall systems that contain combustible materials need to have been tested per NFPA 285 requirements. The majority of the materials used in a Mammoth/STO Panel are non-combustible and will not contribute to a fire. The few materials that are considered combustible have been tested per NFPA 285 standards.
