In December 2010 after a successful tender process, CIMC MBS was awarded a 5 year Strategic Supply Agreement with BHPto deliver all their accommodation buildings. This was one of CIMC MBS most rewarding contracts.
Still ongoing CIMC MBS has delivered over 800 accommodation buildings under this agreement. To date the buildings that have been delivered to two villages, one in Port Hedland called Mooka Rail Camp, the second the Warrawandu village situated outside of Newman.
After an extensive prototype process, CIMC MBS and BHP have jointly developed a building that is at the cutting edge of resource accommodation providing the occupant facilities that had not been seen before. Cutting edge technology gives the user all the featured comforts expected in the most prestigious hotels in the world.
Each module has to meet the BHP specifications normally associated with mine sites. CIMC MBS has met this head on, procuring materials from Australia and within China that were fully compliant.
As the modules are designed to be relocated to any location, all the services are contained within the modules. A simple plug and play approach helps reduce time onsite during the installation. The modules are fully compliant to the highest category of cyclones and design to withstand the harsh Australian outback.
The units supplied under this agreement are considered by many in the industry to be the new bench mark of resource based accommodation.
A unique feature of this agreement is that CIMC MBS delivered the units to Perth, Western Australia and provides a storage solution, prior to the delivery to site.
Each delivery to date has been delivered on time and on budget.
