With over 2,000 student beds and a total project value for Balfour Beatty of around £150million, the University of Sussex East Slopes Residences project is one of the single largest, successful offsite construction projects of its kind ever built in the UK. It's the success of this project which is a stand out headline alone. So many construction projects might be labelled as successful, even though there were failings along the way, but Sussex wasn't. Every aspect of this project is worthy of recognition.
It's a benchmark example of how Fusion's 'Product rather than Project' thinking assisted in the adoption of an integrated supply chain model, to deliver an excellent offsite solution. An early commitment to Fusion's light steel frame system and breaking the mould with payment in advance meant Fusion could design and manufacture ahead of time, enabling maximum flexibility on the build programme.
The project was a learning experience for all involved, with productivity improving phase by phase. It was the mutual respect however, and partnership spirit which was adopted by each organisation which ultimately saw this project achieve a successful completion.
