First Fly in - Fly out hotel project in the Australia
In April 2013 after a successful tender process working with Diploma Construction, CIMC MBS was awarded the supply of V System modules to be utilised in the construction of a three storey Fly in - Fly out hotel style accommodation buildings for the housing of their permanent workforce. the modules were successfully delivered and installed onsite in late 2013. This delivery was the first V System units brought into Australia.
First oil gas camp project
Ichthys Project Onshore LNG Facilities
The village is design to accommodate 3500 anticipated workers at the peak of onshore construction. The design, manufacturing and delivery of the total of 920 modules were executed by CIMC MBS from February 2012 and the first 60 modules (240 rooms) landed in Darwin August 2012, with the delivery cycle repeated every 21 days.
Umbrella Supply Contract

Building on the well-known reputation in the Australia mining industry, CIMC MBS was honored to get the opportunity to sign the Umbrella Supply Contract with Rio Tinto. This is a standard business contract complied by Rio Tinto, which leads to further strategic cooperation.
5 years Strategic Supplier Agreement
with BHP Billiton
Building on the success of the earlier project for BHP Billiton, CIMC MBS has managed to achieve a 5 years Strategic Supply Agreement with BHP Billiton, who is one of the most famous mining company in the world.
First mining camp project
Port Haven Village
In March 2009, CIMC MBS was awarded its first major supply contract in Australia, which was to deliver over 1200 rooms to the major mining village in Port Hedland. The village was a design and construct which had some very unique challenges. The Village required increased acoustic insulation as the village was situated adjacent to the airport and busy rail link supplying Iron ore to the port facilities in Port Hedland.
Largest Modular Hotel
At the time of its completion the Travelodge at Heathrow was the largest modular hotel in the world. Confidence in the V System had grown based on the successful execution of the Warminster and Uxbridge contracts and CIMC were involved earlier in the design process which led to more efficient design not only for the modules but also the supporting steel frame required to provide under croft parking.
First High-rise Hotel
In 2007, following the success of the Warminster project Travelodge increased the scope to include pre-finished ensuite bathrooms and decorated bedrooms to this development. This nine-storey hotel comprised a traditionally built steel frame ground floor with eight levels of V System modules above. Three different room sizes were used in this hotel resulting in different sized modules to suit each type.
The site in Uxbridge faces the main west London bus depot operating a 24 hour service seven days a week. The site was extremely confined with no storage facilities or lay-down area available for any material deliveries.
By having V System modules delivered into site, pre-finished the contractor eliminated the need for site storage and mitigated risk through just-in-time delivery and reduced deliveries. As aresult disruption to the depot was kept to a minimum. As each lorry arrived at the site the modules were quickly lifted into place and located using the patented connector system.
First Hotel Project
In 2006, CIMC MBS has achieved its first opportunities to build a hotel for a well-known British hotel brand –Travelodge. Travelodge sought to capitalize on the success of their already trading hotel at a popular roadside service area with minimal disruption to their visitors. The brief involved adding a small two-storey extension without interruption to the existing businesses. CIMC MBS’s solution has truly alleviated tradition build constraints via shorter build time.
First student accommodation
In 2005, CIMC MBS successfully delivered its first student accommodation project in the Netherlands. In response to the acute housing shortage and high rental price of student accommodation, Amsterdam University developed a green living solution that offered their students the opportunity of accommodation in containerized cargo modules.
Research and Deisgn
Building on the success of our parent company CIMC Group, CIMC MBS has progressively stepped into the industry of Modular Building. After over 30 years of being the leading manufacturer of modern transportation equipment, CIMC has grown from a container business to one of the largest and most diverse manufacturing groups in the world. Due to the clients’ requirements for speed of construction, improved quality and for early return of investment in construction industry, the rising demand for modular construction has captured the eye of CIMC. After a couple of years of researching and designing, CIMC Modular Building Systems was founded to deliver all the benefits and more by utilising the technology of container.
