has been supplying its comprehensive concrete footing formwork construction system, of which the formwork is merely a constituent of this technology, for the past 22 years. As a result, we do not simply supply modular plastic formwork, but a holistic building technology, that has been specifically designed and is proven too benefit the end user with its simplicity and ease of use.

has developed a cast house system to construct durable structures of quality in the shortest possible time, inclusing basements and footing.

This system has developed into a concrete construction technology that addresses four key challenges embodied in the low cost and affordable housing shortages facing developing countries namely:
  • lack of resources
  • insufficient funds
  • skills shortage
  • time constraint
  • work flow control
  • time constraints
  • waste
Traditional bricks or blocks are moulded in a small mould and then laboriously stacked by an artisan, sandwiched with mortar to create a wall. The electrical and water pipes are placed by grinding and chasing into the wall. The wall is then plastered to cover the pipes and services, as well as the brickwork, to create a level and smooth surface.

A few disadvantages of brick or block construction are:
 
  • Labour intensive
  • Compressive capacity only
  • Skilled labour
  • Mortar shrinkage
  • Thermal expansion and contraction
  • Levelling
  • Erratic supplies = erratic delivery
  • Waste
  • Rework
  • Slow delivery
  • Inconsistent quality
  • Unpredictable cash flow
  • Increased cost
The patented footing construction technology is cost effective due to its repetitive application. It is affordable due to the fact that the formwork is used on a repetitive basis for up to 50 reuses per kit; this results in the cost of the formwork being amortized over the construction of 50 units.

By combing the re-usable, patented, recyclable lightweight plastic injection moulded concrete footing formwork system, with a South African Bureau of Standards approved lightweight aerated mortar, Agrément Certificate 94/231, a full scale mould of the designed house is configured with all the services, both plumbing and electrical, are cast in situ as a monolithic reinforced walling system. Chasing, beam filling, plastering and wastage are eliminated, producing a fast track, cost effective, transferable construction technology.

In simple terms, has:
  • A constant supply of materials
  • Known costs footing construction
  • Unskilled operators
  • Next to no waste
  • Increased productivity
  • Reduced cost footing construction
  • Consistent quality
  • Predictable cash flow
