Fusion has been helping clients to build hospitals and other buildings for healthcare environments for over 20 years. During that time we have provided LGSF systems for over 2000 care bed buildings.
Our team are experienced in providing the design and build to deliver bespoke solutions for any healthcare setting.
Unique Hybrid Construction
Fusion uses a combination of LGSF 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
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 internal 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.
Fusion’s engineered light gauge steel solution does not suffer from shrinkage or unpredictable differential movement, which affects other forms of construction. This reduces remedial costs and perhaps more importantly, reduces damage to reputation and increases the prospect of repeat business.
