HOW IT WORKS
The   multi-award   winning   moladi    construction   system   was   founded   in   South   Africa   in   1986   as   a   method   of   building   cast   in   place   reinforced   monolithic structures.   The   moladi    technology   was   developed   as   a   means   to   alleviate   many   of   the   cumbersome   and   costly   aspects   associated   with   conventional construction methods without compromising on the quality or integrity of the structure. The   moladi    system   constitutes   the   use   of   a   removable,   reusable,   recyclable   and   lightweight   plastic      formwork   mould,   which   is   filled   with   a   South   African   Bureau of   Standards   approved   and   Agrément   Certified   aerated   mortar   to   form   the   wall   structure   of   a   house   in   as   little   as   one   day.   Each   set   of   moladi    formwork   panels can   be   re-used   50   times   making   the   technology   cost   effective   due   to   its   repetitive   application   scheme,   reducing   the   cost   of   construction   and   transportation significantly. The moladi  system produces durable and permanent structures, which have been subject to numerous tests and independent reports. 
The   process   involves   a   number   of   smaller   components   which   are   assembled   into   larger,   lightweight   panels   that   are   configured   into   a   mould   which   forms   a   house of   any   desired   size   and   design.   The   engineer   specified   steel   reinforcing   bars,   window   and   door   block-outs,   conduits,   service   pipes   and   other   fittings   are   positioned within   the   150mm   or   100mm   wall   cavity,   which   is   then   filled   with   a   specially   formulated   and   project   specific   lightweight   mortar   consisting   of   the   local   river   sand, cement,   water,   and   a   harmless      cement   admixture   to   form   all   the   walls   of   the   house   simultaneously.   The   moladi    plastic   formwork   panels   are   then   removed   the following   morning   and   immediately   re-erected   onto   an   adjoining   site.   The   result   is   a   wall   with   a   smooth   off-shutter   finish   that   does   not   require   any   plastering,   beam filling or chasing and generates no waste. The walls are then painted, the roof erected and windows and doors are installed to complete the house.   The   moladi    construction   method   provides   structures   which   are   permanent,   durable,   waterproof,   and   possess   excellent   thermal   and   sound   insulation   properties. The   moladi    walls   possess   an   average   compressive   strength   of   15MPa   or   15N/mm²,   which   is   far   stronger   than   the   average   standard   for   cement   blocks   which vary from 3.6 N/mm² and 7N/mm² or common clay building bricks, which have a compressive strength of 5.2N/mm².  moladi ’s   principle   methodology   is   aimed   at   eliminating   all   of   the   typical   problems   one   encounters   with   construction   projects,   such   as   time   constraints,   shortage of   skilled   labour   and   materials   as   well   as   waste.   It   is   the   simplicity,   performance,   functionality   and   practicality   of   the   moladi   technology   which   contributes   to   the affordability of moladi  homes which are roughly 30% less than similar structures built using the traditional brick and mortar method. 
The structural requirements for the Raft Foundation are determined by a professional local Engineer. The Raft foundation is ultimately more cost effective to build, is less time and labour intensive, is far more accurate and is suitable for all ground conditions
The moladi formwork panels are positioned and erected on the foundation. The doors, windows, electrical and plumbing fittings, reinforcing, roof ties and truss block-outs are located prior to the casting of the walls. After filling, the panels are removed and immediately re-erected on an adjoining foundation.
The mix ratios of cement, river sand, water and moladiADMIX is determined by laboratory testing of the local aggregate. The specialised moladi mortar mix is then mixed on site and is either manually dispatched or pumped into the formwork cavity. The moladi formwork can be removed the next morning.
