moladi established in Namibia - moladiNAMIBIAmoladi CEO, Hennie Botes, was invited to meet with the Namibian Ministry task to address the huge housing backlog in Namibia. Also present during the meetings where the technical advisors to the Ministry and special advisor to President Hage Geingob.

moladi has been handed two stands in Windhoek and another three in Gobabis to construct show units for the community. The number one issue for any home is the social acceptability criteria. The structure must feel and sound like a house that people are used to or have grown up in. If this criteria is not passed, then price is not even discussed.

End user funding of the structures are critical. As the homes need to be financed over a long term in order to be financially affordable to the new owner. moladi is approved by major banks in South Africa and Namibia.

This Low-Cost Innovation could fix the Most Common Urban Problem of Affordable Housing
Innovative Construction Technique


It is difficult to contemplate in abstract the tremendous strain that rapid urbanization has put on housing and serviced land for the urban poor in developing countries. The United Nations Population Fund has projected that by 2030, Africa’s urban population would reach nearly 750 million, creating a dire need for proper housing and access to basic infrastructure and services. More than a dozen African cities would be among the world’s largest by 2025.

Moladi, a South Africa-based family-owned business promises to simplify the housing problem. Founder Hennie Botes, using an innovative system of reusable formwork has designed an efficient construction technique that requires formwork moulds assembled with 30cmx30cm plastic panels by extension. The modular construction technique allows for buildings such as houses, schools, community centers, and clinics to be constructi…

COST SAVINGS moladi is able to control costs better by consolidating the supply chain. Its kit concept ensures that it controls costs by sourcing almost all components needed for a building site in one go, ensuring better control over prices and costs. Furthermore, says Hennie Botes, “the streamlined building process is designed in such a way that we can avoid expensive stoppages which are common on traditional building sites, where the builders have to wait for the electrician, then for the plumber, and new holes need to be drilled every time, wasting building material and time. Furthermore, “during the design process, precise weight and volume calculations can be made for all materials and components thanks to standardization, which simplifies project management and drastically reduces the wastage factor on site. Finally, the speed of construction effectively reduces other costs related to the h…

Lightweight Formwork

The focus of moladihas always been on affordable and low-income
homes for the mass market. Due to the continuous improvements over nearly three decades moladihas emerged as a leader in the field of “producing” top quality structures in a very short period at a reduced price, implementing
the patented lightweight formwork system.
The moladi system consists of a lightweight reusable and recyclable plastic formwork or mould, which is filled with stone-less concrete and a special admixture. The lightweight formwork can be 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, too. The wall structure of a house can be completed within one d…

Brick Homes versus innovative Building Technologies

Brick built homes do not fare well compared to new
innovative building technologies
Many Innovative Building Technologies (IBT) or Alternative Building Technologies (ABT) or non-masonry building systems, outstrip brick and mortar homes. The Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) rates brick homes 32nd out of 40 certified systems.





moladi uses reusable lightweight plastic formwork to cast walls in place or insitu. The technology speeds up the construction process reducing cost, making homes stronger and affordable. For more information visit www.moladi.co.za

Moladi: Frugal Innovation In Africa | Jugaad Innovation in India

In many African countries, housing is one of the most sensitive issues affecting the lower income groups. In South Africa for example, close to 13% of the 14.3 million households are informal dwellings (Statistics South Africa, 2011). The term "informal dwelling" is often used in South Africa to designate shacks, corrugated-iron structures and other makeshift shelters. The above statistics represents about 1.8 million households (between 7.2 and 10.8 million people). Informal structures are often made of highly combustible materials such as wood and cardboard which pose serious safety and environmental concerns. The structures are easily damaged and exposed to the external elements meaning that people often live in damp, very hot or very cold conditions. The other concern is inadequate or lack of sanitation and running water which constitute a serious healt…
