Unique Hybrid Construction
Fusion uses a combination of LGS and HRS to create structures with less material. For example, a Fusion dividing wall uses 250kg of light gauge steel to form the structure compared to 1250kg of hot rolled steel. Not only is the structure formed with 5x less steel, the structure also does the job of providing support for the wall finishes.
Lower Capital Costs (up to 25% less)
Health Sector buildings with Fusion achieve capital cost reductions of up to 25%, where Fusion’s unique hybrid construction is used as part of a standardised approach to Design and Procurement.
Fusion has worked on Health Sector buildings of up 2,000m2 gross floor area and reductions in programme of 25% are achievable.
Catalyst for Step Change
Fusion is already being used as a catalyst to deliver schools as part of a standardised approach to design and procurement which delivers a branded product with both capital costs and build time reduced by up to 25%. The same approach can be used in the Health Sector.
While design and procurement processes are standardised, the various components of the Fusion system can be combined in a multitude of ways to offer a wide range of flexible layouts to suit the varying needs of Clients and Site constraints.
Composite Deck Floors/Roofs
Fusion’s unique hybrid construction approach allows the use of composite concrete/metal deck, which can be used to accommodate heavy loads – for example, plant rooms.
Cost in use
The absence of differential movements/shrinkage and general stability of an engineered steel structure significantly reduces the need for ongoing maintenance. This, along with the energy efficiency savings provided by Fusion’s high performance thermal envelope, means that ongoing running costs of a Fusion structure are significantly reduced.
