Fusion Attracts the Attention of the Cabinet Office

Our innovative approach to create sustainable buildings at affordable costs has attracted the attention of Dr David Hancock, Head of Construction in the Government’s Cabinet Office and prompted a visit to our Northampton headquarters.

The fact finding visit was an opportunity for the cabinet office team to learn more about our alternative approach to building which integrates structure, insulation and cladding support in a unique single factory process.

“Innovation is crucial to meeting the house building challenge facing this country. Offsite construction by companies like Fusion Building Systems is an exciting part of the attempt to meet this challenge.” said Dr David Hancock.

Fusion’s Business Development Manager Robert Clark said “The visit provided us with the chance to demonstrate to the Cabinet Office team our unique superstructure solution as a proven alternative method of construction that could well go a long way to reducing the UK housing shortage. Our patented pre-insulated panel system has been developed over 15 years and we are seeing more and more the Fusion System being adopted by funders, developers and main contractors in order to tackle the current housing deficit. We know we have a system that works but to take it to the next level we need to see continuity in high-volume demand and partners committed to modern offsite construction methods.”
