ALL THE GOOD STUFF
moladi has been designed and manufactured to address the six key challenges that determine the successful implementation of low cost housing projects in developing countries. These challenges would be the lack of sufficient funds, the shortage of skilled labourers, a lack of resources, work flow control, time constraints and wastage. The unique moladi monolithic cast house system has succeeded in producing durable structures of quality in the shortest possible time. By combining the moladi reusable, patented, recyclable lightweight plastic injection moulded 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. Traditional bricks or blocks are moulded in a small mould and then laboriously stacked by an artisan and sandwiched with mortar to form a wall structure. The electrical and water pipes are positioned by grinding and chasing into the brickwall. The wall is then plastered to cover the pipes and services, as well as the brickwork, to create a level and smooth surface. moladi is also unique in that it can be easily transported to virtually any part of the world, including remote and rural areas and informal settlements and the construction of a moladi structure does not require heavy machinery, or even electricity. The building materials required for the moladi methodology are materials which are readily available, easily accessible and sourced locally. By utilizing indigenous materials the benefits of the technology are spread to local communities. moladi: sounds and feels like a brick or block house - passing the ‘knock test’. safe, solid and secure. socially acceptable. high standard permanent structures. fast, simple and adaptable. suitable for all types of buildings. utilizing indigenous materials. earthquake, cyclone and tsunami resistant. forms all the walls in a building simultaneously versatile and allows for easy adaptation to varied design specifications. promotes a high standard in the construction industry. 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 significantly. does not rely on traditional skilled labour and can employ the local indigenous unskilled community. train local contractors and entrepreneurs to use our technology and, in turn, empowering communities to build quality structures. jobs are created within the community and members become participants in the construction of their homes.
