Police stations-building contract irregularities

More dodgy tenders found - Police stations-building contract irregularities Police stations-building contract irregularities The Special Investigating Unit has told parliament it uncovered serious irregularities in the building of 33 police stations, which cost the country R330-million. Hot on the heels of the R500-million police headquarters lease deal scandal, the National Assembly's justice committee heard yesterday that the SAPS build programme was plagued by tender irregularities, including possible BEE fronting. Outlining his unit's strategic plans for the 2011/12 financial year, unit head Willie Hofmeyr said: "We are looking at the building of 33 police stations where up to R330-million has been spent so far. "A lot of the stations are being built on three quotes, not on a tender process. You have one quote for desks, another for half the bricks and another quote for the other half of the bricks. It's not a very desirable system," Hofmeyr told shocked…

Reduce poverty

EU offers $1.3 billion to reduce poverty

UNITED NATIONS: Reduce Poverty

European leaders have offered one billion euros (1.3 billion dollars) at the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) summit here, amid mounting calls for money to pay for the battle to cut extreme poverty. The huge sum was offered late Monday by EU commission president Jose Manuel Barroso at the end of the first day of a summit on the goals, knocked off track by the international financial crisis. President Nicolas Sarkozy of France and Spain's Prime Minister Jose Luis Zapatero earlier stepped up a push for a new global financial tax, raising pressure on the world's wealthy countries at the three-day summit to contribute more in the drive to eradicate poverty and improve child and maternal health. African nations in particular are calling for more action and the West can expect little sympathy when the likes of Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad speak on Tuesday. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said th…

Although moladi technology is primarily a manufacturer of a re-useable machine made patented formwork system that allows walls to be cast stronger faster for less, the principal focus is on the delivery of the “whole house”. A house consists of many components and the” assembly process” needs to be project managed in its entirety. That means windows, doors, roof, bath, toilet, paint, ceiling, glass, electrical hardware, etc. etc. needs to be planned ordered and supplied in order to avoid a “bottle neck” that would stop production creating “waste” resulting in an increase in cost. This in turn makes the product, the home, unaffordable to the majority of people.

moladi -delivering mass low cost houses is achievable



One of the problems confronting housing delivery in Nigeria is the persistent use of conventional method of construction, which is slowed with inconsistence quality and increased cost. But that seems to be changing, as a firm has introduced to the nation’s housing sector a new building technology from South Africa that is capable of delivering 50,000 to 2, 500,000 housing units within a short period of time.

Tagged “Moladi Building System” the technology comes as a solution for rapid delivery of quality houses by empowering the local communities. Speaking with the National Mirror in Lagos at the weekend, the Managing Director, Moladi Technology Nigeria Limited, Mr Abraham Adewale, said the system addressed key challenges of the low cost and shortage of affordable houses facing the country. He assured that with the adoption of the Moladi building sy…

PERFORMANCE OF moladi HOUSES DURING A TSUNAMI It's a sobering fact: Earthquakes alone don't kill people; collapsed buildings do.
But can people engineer buildings that wouldn't crumble when subjected to the rumblings of the Earth?
In the wake of the Haiti and Chile earthquakes, and also Japan, such a question has more importance now than any time in recent memory.

The simple answer is yes. The technology exists to make buildings nearly earthquake-proof today.

Technology designed to keep buildings from collapsing works essentially in two ways: By making buildings stronger, by casting the structure monolithis insitu reinfirced to withstand maximum loads
moladi is a construction technology that does just that for the last 25 years

The worldwide prefabricated housing market is expected to hit a volume of 757,000 units per year in 2015. The prefabricated housing market will be driven by technological advances, government regulations, the climate and promotional construction projects. According to Global Industry Analysts, the global prefabricated housing market posted moderate growth between 2004 and 2007. The market took a further blow due to the poor economic conditions after 2008. Now though, the market is on the point of a resurgence albeit with growth at a lower rate.
Overproduction, significant losses in the industry and poor underwriting resulted in decline in the shipments of manufactured homes over the past few years. Further, the comparatively low resale value associated with t…
