Building system to produce low cost housing

The main idea: very quick construction. "The question is whether conventional building methods are able to cope with the ever-increasing demand for quality homes," says Moladi founder Hennie Botes.



"Due to the simplicity of the method, construction techniques and skills can be transferred in a short time. In this way, the communities benefit from affordable shelter and entrepreneurs are skilled at the same time, creating employment," Botes says.
