In May 2010, working under a Head Contractor, CIMC MBS was awarded the design and construct supply of double storey accommodation units to FMG's Christmas Creek Village.
This project possessed some unique challenges. This was the first double storey village developed by FMG and their first overseas purchase of modular buildings. The modules were supplied in curved clusters of buildings with walkways and stair cases.
Each building consisted of 4 rooms with adjoining ensuited bathrooms. CIMC MBS also supplied a number of single storey ancillary buildings to the project.
Whilst the village was not situated in a cyclonic environment, the buildings were required to be built to meet the highest categories of cyclones experienced in the world. The harsh Australian outback, meant that every component selected on the buildings needed to be tested and installed to meet this head on.
The project was completed in 7 months from award including design, manufacture and delivery.
