- Housing and Microfinance
has been supplying its
comprehensive Housing and Microfinance construction system, of which the
formwork is merely a
constituent of this technology, for the past 23 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.
developed a Housing and Microfinance
system to construct durable structures of quality in the shortest
This Housing and Microfinance system has developed into a construction technology that addresses
seven key challenges embodied in the low cost and affordable housing
shortages facing developing countries namely:
patented Housing 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.
- lack of resources
- insufficient funds
- skills shortage
- time constraint
- work flow control

Housing and Microfinance system
Over and above these
Housing and Microfinance is:
- a recipient of the
South African Bureau of Standards Design for Development Award and
aims at providing millions of people around the world to obtain
equity in their country by providing them with homes that are of a
high standard and at a reduced cost.
- is a unique
patented plastic injection moulded Housing and Microfinance
system, which produces
cast-in-place mortar structures.
- a fast, simple,
adaptable Housing and Microfinance
- suitable for all
types of buildings, yet it is highly suited for Microfinance in mass housing
markets, without compromising quality.
indigenous materials to produce high standard permanent structures
that are earthquake, cyclone and tsunami resistant.
- unique in that the
Housing and Microfinance all the walls in a building simultaneously. At the same time,
it brings to field construction all the benefits of a factory
assembly line - quality work, by unskilled workers at a maximum rate
- versatile and
allows for easy adaptation to varied design specifications, whether
they are schools, homes, clinics or factories whist maintaining
design aesthetics for social acceptability.
- promotes a high
standard in the Housing and Microfinance construction industry.
- successful in
alleviating many of the logistical problems facing the construction
of affordable repetitive housing projects.
- creates a high
production output capacity.
- facilitates the
possibility for many in situ structures to be built in just one day.
- amortized over
many re-uses, reducing the cost of construction and transportation
of the Housing and Microfinance
- far outweighs
poorly designed and costly concrete-block and masonry structures, as
they often fail to timeously meet the requirements of mass housing
