As part of a high-rise modular hotel development located in the CBD of Perth, Lucid Consulting Engineers twice visited the CIMC-Modular Building Systems (MBS) factory located in Jiangmen, Guangdong Province, China in 2015. The purpose of the two visits was to undertake quality control inspections and commissioning witnessing of trade installations within a prototype module containing two complete 5-star hotel suites.
Following a detailed workshop drawing review process carried out over a 3 month period, Lucid engineers devised bespoke delineation schedules, inspection witnessing proformas and construction methodologies for CIMC-MBS in order to assist the timely and cost effective construction of the hotel prototype modules which were presented to hotel operator stakeholders for approval.
This high customised quality control undertaking was a successful introduction between CIMC-MBS and Lucid which has led to other project opportunities between the two entities. A number of other project prototypes are currently under development and will see Lucid staff revisiting the factory for similar processes.
