Helping the built environment achieve net carbon zero
Every organisation working in the built environment has their part to play in achieving net carbon zero.
Our ambition at Fusion is to be the offsite supply chain partner of choice, helping our clients achieve this vision by using our light steel frame superstructure solution.
Across our 20 year history, we’ve designed and built more light steel frame superstructures than anyone else in our industry. We work for some of the UK’s largest contractors, developers and funders, and our ethos is to deliver high quality, precision engineered sustainable superstructures, on time, on budget and to specification.
By its very nature, our system is amongst the most sustainable construction materials available, but in order to ensure we use it to its maximum potential, we work to two principles:
- Use materials which deliver the maximum benefit for a building, but in the smallest possible quantity
- Design all our operational processes to ensure waste is kept to
We’re a member of the Steel Construction Institute (SCI) and have worked alongside them and the BRE to help establish light steel framing as a sustainable offsite solution for the industry. To put this into context, the London Energy Transformation Initiative (LETI) identified a series of aims and approaches which should be adopted by the construction industry to help reduce embodied carbon. These were published in the Climate Emergency Design Guide (see below):
These ideals now need to be put into practice if, together, we are to achieve sustainable, low carbon building methods. At Fusion, our plan looks like this:
