Low cost Construction Housing - Block Free Building System

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.

Fitch downgrades SA outlook

Fitch downgrades SA outlook: Fin24: Economy

Fitch downgrades SA outlook
Johannesburg - Fitch cut South Africa’s rating outlook to negative from stable on Friday, saying it had seen limited progress on several long-standing structural issues that have over time caused the country’s economic performance to fall behind its peers.


The rand fell 1.5% against the dollar after the move, while South Africa’s 5-year credit default swaps rose 10 basis points.


Fitch, which has a BBB+ rating on South Africa, said the country’s inability to create jobs, with an unemployment rate of around 25%, was putting pressure on growth and narrowing the tax base.

Low-cost housing-Builders told to focus on low cost housing




Leading engineering experts at a major forum called upon the developers in the Gulf region to build houses for people in the lower strata of society. Qatar Society of Engineers chairman Ahmad Jassim Al Jolo said the situation is critical all over the Gulf but is of particular concern in Bahrain and Qatar where there is a lot of pressure on space. 'We have a situation where there are developers who run after huge profits and make houses only for high-paying clients and we have consultants who design houses for the rich,' he told the GDN, speaking on the sidelines of the 15th Gulf Engineering Forum. The event, under the patronage of His Royal Highness Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, concludes today at Gulf Hotel's Gulf Convention Centre. It is being held under the theme Affordable housing projects. 'The idea is to reduce costs and for t…

Saudi 'in need of another 973,000 affordable homes'





Saudi Arabia will need an additional 973,000 housing units by 2015 and a total of 2.1 million units over the coming decade (215,000 units per year), said a new report by NCB Capital, Saudi Arabia’s leading wealth manager. The NCB Capital in its latest report analyses the Kingdom’s real estate strategy and examines the key benefits and obstacles to affordable housing. According to the report, moral, social and economic reasons make provision of affordable housing central to development of a nation. “Using a definition of affordability where no more than 30-35 per cent of median income is spent on housing, we find that a lack of supply of affordable homes is a significant concern in the Middle East as a whole as well as in Saudi Arabia,” remarked Farouk Miah, acting head of Equity Research at NCB Capital. “Despite the important role the government is playing in the provision of affordable housing, …
