Build without brick and block - moladi formwork

Build without brick and block Build without brick and block - Formwork
Moladi plastic formwork system has eliminated the need for bricks or blocks to be used to build walls of a house, school, classroom or any other building structure as a matter of fact. Eliminating expensive transport cost, waste, rework, mortar between bricks or blocks, and very costly plaster or rendering. Because of the simplistic manner of casting a wall all need to chase the wall after building is now not necessary – translated as a further reduction in cost of production – or rather reducing the cost of construction Build without brick and block

Low cost housing - Build low-cost housing faster better for less with moladi
Low cost housing - moladi The Moladi system consists of a reusable and recyclable plastic formwork mould, which is filled with stone-less concrete and a special chemical additive. This additive ensures that, once the mortar is set, the framework can be removed – and reused up to 50 times. According to the founder Hennie Botes, the brickless walls can withstand all types of weather. The formwork is lightweight allowing easy transportation. Due to the simplicity in design and the repetitive application scheme, construction costs can be reduced significantly. The Moladi model is not only cost-effective but fast, to: Botes comments that the wall structure of a house can be completed within one day. A further plus point, especially in remote areas, is that the construction does not require heavy machinery or electricity.

Educate For Problem-Solving, Not Factories - Forbes



Quick show of hands: How many of you actually enjoy doing homework? That’s more or less what I figured. (I don’t see anyone with their hands raised.)
A 1948 U.S. survey showed that the typical high school student spent three to four hours on homework … per week. But as America raced into space during the 1950s, a pro-homework movement took off, in part, due to fears that students weren’t keeping up with their counterparts in the Soviet Union.

The stacks of homework have continued to climb, by more than 50 percent since 1981, but the additional problem sets don’t seem to be helping much. A new research paper suggests that if you can do basic subtraction, you’re probably a better mathematician than the majority of U.S. community college students. That’s discouraging, especially in light of lagging education statistics. Perhaps more troubling is that the extra homework load we subject our students to—and the adolescent academic stress asso…

Concrete Floor Slab Formwork System


Concrete Floor Slab Formwork System Suspended concrete slab formworkmoladi In-situ floor Suspended slab formwork system
moladi designer of a unique patented plastic formwork system has recently design a new Suspended slab formwork system for casting reinforced Suspended concrete slabs - Floor slabs to enable the construction of multi-level structures to be built faster better stronger for less. This requires formwork technology to be able to carry the dead loads and impact when casting slabs in-situ

The photo below depicts the completed suspended concrete roof slab

The 20 square meter slab was constructed with 2 cubic meters of 25 mpa concrete and 100 kg of steel

The cost for the slab is drastically reduced because of the formwork configuration that allows for multiple permutations as can be seen below – Less than the cost associated with rib and block precast system

The moladi Slab System allows for beams to be increased or decreased in numbers, thickness…

Government partnerships crucial: moladi Technology provides a solution to fight poverty Sapa | 17 December, 2012 09:00
Deputy Minister of Finance Nhlanhla Nene. File photo The government's partnership with labour, the private sector and civil society is crucial in solving South Africa's problems, Deputy Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene said on Monday. The government's relationship with the other three had to change for the country to move forward, he told reporters in Mangaung.
“We welcome all concerns from all sides. We need to begin by identifying the problem… and then say what is it that each partner brings to solve the problem?
“What we have to admit is to have an on-going relationship rather than trying to build this relationship when there is a crisis.”
Nene said the Marikana shooting was an opportunity to strengthen the relationship between the government, organised business, labour…
