Пластиковая опалубка: быстрое строительствоOknaidveri / 27.10.2011
При строительстве дома мы уже на этапе проектирования задумываемся о том, какую опалубку выбрать, ориентируясь на такие критерии как цена, качество и продолжительность работ. Наиболее распространенная сегодня деревянная опалубка подвержена деформациям при доставке и усушке. Как результат, могут раскрываться швы между досками, появляется коробление и растрескивание. К тому же, деревянная форма предназначена для строительства одного объекта, ее не используют вторично.

Formwork Technology - moladi Plastic Formwork Construction Technology




Combining a lightweight modular injection moulded plastic shutter formwork system, branded as moladi,and a South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) approved lightweight aerated mortar (concrete with no stone), a cast in situ monolithic (one piece) reinforced walling system is created. The result is a fast track and cost effective plastic formwork construction technology. Formwork Technology patented modular reusable cost effective the only comprehensive plastic injection moulded formwork system the only comprehensive machine-made formwork system produced to the highest quality standards – ISO 9002 comprehensive and incorporates many additional innovations unlimited production capacity. without dependence on skilled labour, components are produced by injection moulding, which allows high production of very exacting quality standards, in accordance to ISO 9002. due to the production process, an unlimited number…

Low-cost homes spell new cash stream for developers


Affordable property is set to be the next battleground for developers as wealthy Gulf states struggle to close a chronic housing shortfall for their populations, a report said Sunday.


Developers are placing more emphasis on midmarket projects in a bid to tap into multibillion-dollar state spending plans, opening up a potentially lucrative revenue stream for debt –hit firms, real estate consultants Jones Lang LaSalle (JLS) said “We think that this is the greatest opportunity that the development industry has at the moment,” Craig Plumb, head of research, MENA at Jones Lang LaSalle, told Arabian Business. “Across the region there is a shortage. Because governments want to do something about it we would be expecting a lot more Gulf developers to be active in this sector of the market.”
The Middle East and North Africa has an estimated affordable housing shortfall of 3.5 million with nearly half in Egypt. High land prices coupled with the cos…

Plastic Formwork System | Design with the Other 90%






Every year, nearly seventy million people, or 200,000 a day, move from rural areas to urban cities. In South Africa alone, more than 2.2 million homes are currently needed, and an additional 180,000 homes will be needed every year to keep pace with rapid urbanization. The Plastic Formwork System is a method of building cast-in-place reinforced concrete structures, in which the walls of a house can be built in as little as a day by unskilled laborers with locally sourced materials and little waste. The system is comprised of square plastic components that join together to form wall panels from which the house is assembled. The house’s infrastructure—steel-reinforcement bars, conduits, window and door frames, pipes and other fittings—is positioned on the wall; once in place, these elements are sandwiched between a second layer of panels, forming a cavity into which a lightweight concrete mortar is poured. After the mortar dries overnigh…

NEDLAC Jobs Unemployment Employment Skills

NEDLAC Jobs Unemployment Employment Skills

Transnet on Friday said about 40 people were injured during a stampede at its Bloemfontein depot after 10,000 people had arrived for job interviews for just 30 vacancies.
As the first group of people were taken inside to write tests, those waiting outside assumed they would not be allowed to apply.
They then tried to force their way in.
Transnet’s Mboniso Sigonyela admitted they did not expect such a response.
“That was shocking; we had planned for about 4,000 people. We had two halls which could accommodate 400 each and we expected it to take about four hours to assess all those people,” he said.
10,000 people arrive for 30 vacancies: HELLO - 10,000 People for 30 jobs - This government is failing it's people!!!
This is sad - this is a shame!
We have "Pew Warmers" in Government with no compassion or ability or will to create employment. We have the capability and technology to impact unemployment in SA creating jobs, but are bottle nec…

Housing innovation moladi

A passion for uplifting communities and providing housing for all, coupled with innovative technology, has resulted in an invitation to South African company Moladi to show its concept at the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum's exhibition Design for the Other 90%: CITIES.
The prestigious exhibition, sponsored by the philanthropic Rockefeller Foundation, takes place at the UN in New York from 15 October 2011 to 9 January 2012. More than 60 innovations from 22 countries will be on show. Following on from the groundbreaking Design for the Other 90% in 2007, the CITIES edition will explore the challenges that are expected to arise from the unprecedented growth predicted in urban areas and informal settlements. It is said that the population of these settlements will double by 2030.
CITIES will explore ways to address the basic struggle to survive faced every day by 5.8-billion people, or 90% of the world’s population of 6.5-billion. Almost half of …
