Fusion‘s pilot project for factory fitted windows in partnership with Sidey Windows and Main Contractor Longcross Construction has proven to be a great success.
The pilot was conducted on a 125 bed Student Accommodation project in Birmingham where the speed of build and weather proofing of the superstructure was critical to the overall build programme.
Through their involvement in the Fabric First Academy, Fusion have developed a close working relationship with Sidey Windows. As part of the on-going partnership representatives from the Fusion Team visited Sidey’s HQW in Perth. Mark Jowett (Head of Technical Design) and Tony Young (Factory Manager) spent time with the Sidey team to look at all areas including; order processing, design development, manufacturing processes, factory installation efficiencies, logistics and erecting methods.
Ian Smith, Business Development Manager at Sidey says “Sidey were thrilled to welcome Fusion Building Systems to our advanced window and door manufacturing facilities where they were able to witness first-hand the lean manufacturing process and unique innovations including our KitFix® system which clearly differentiates the Fusion /Sidey benefits in the LGS market. It is clear that the additional benefits of volumetric off-site manufacturing – including installation of the Sidey, KitFix® system- combined with our mutual “Fabric-First” ethos will continue to strengthen our partnership and deliver quality, performance and value for our mutual clients.”
