Project Overview

Fusion Building Systems have worked with Willmott Dixon on the development of a highly engineered full Level 2 Building Information Model (BIM) compliant building solution for the delivery of modern classroom solutions. We have skilfully engineered the system to represent an optimum point between efficiency, cost in use and design. The result is a range of pre-designed primary schools bold in their design, which deliver best value outstanding learning environments at commercially competitive prices.

Through a thorough value-engineering process Fusion has worked with Willmott Dixon to develop a solution that is based on certainty. Each design has a defined layout, an upfront specification and known time to manufacture and construct. This enables us to offer our light gauge steel (LGS) and hot rolled steel (HRS) hybrid solution on an all-inclusive lump sum basis. The system works best when a significant proportion of the classroom walls stack, which allows load-bearing LGS to replace HRS and ensures that a value-engineered approach is applied at every opportunity - demonstrating the advantages of component standardisation and the real benefits of rolling out a mass-customised solution across a range of large-scale projects in the UK.
