Modular Construction: CIMC MBS

Client CIMC MBS
Services Engineering
Project Value £n/a
Status Completed

Capita is experts in modular building design and have applied our knowledge to the development of student residences, hotels, apartments and workforce accommodation.

We have provided structural engineering design services to China International Marine Containers Modular Building Systems (CIMC MBS); the largest manufacturer of modular buildings and modular building systems in the world.

The CIMC MBS system is based on heavily modified standard shipping containers that incorporate all structure, services and finishes within each unit. The ease of construction saves a huge amount of time on the construction phase of the project and results in a high quality cost effective building.

Our work for CIMC MBS involves finite element modelling of the modular scheme which results in rationalisation of the steel profiles and gauges to ensure the modules are efficiently designed, we assess loading and ensure the modules structurally sufficient to withstand the vertical, lateral and seismic loading as necessary.

Capita have provided CIMC MBS with cutting edge advice into the applicability of these modules to tall buildings and buildings within different seismic zones, this work has opened up the possibility of working within a raft of new markets for our client. Our analysis and designs have had the benefit of being proof tested against a full scale working load test model and as a result we are confident that the advice we are providing is accurate and economic.

Capita have completed numerous projects with CIMC MBS both within the UK and internationally including sites in America, Africa and the Far East.
