Modern building methods using modern building materialsMoladi Construction System aims to address the challenge by providing a scalable, low-tech and low-skilled affordable building solution using in-situ casting. Founded in 1986 by South African social entrepreneur Hennie Botes, the company aims to replace the classic brick-and-mortar construction with an easier method: using lightweight, removable and re-usable plastic formwork that are filled with a patented fast setting aerated mortar to cast entire houses on-site. The process is deliberately designed to be labour intensive and mostly uses local supplies (apart from the reusable formwork and a special additive to aerate and water proof the wall ) to boost local employment and local production without requiring prior construction experience.

Coffrage Plastique

Coffrage PlastiqueMoladi système de construction vise à relever le défi en fournissant une solution évolutive bâtiment abordable, à faible technologie et peu qualifiés en utilisant dans la coulée in situ. Fondée en 1986 par entrepreneur social Sud Africain Hennie Botes, l'entreprise vise à remplacer la construction de briques et de mortier classique avec la méthode plus facile: l'utilisation légère, coffrage en plastique amovible et réutilisable ne sont remplies d'un presque réglage breveté de mortier aéré à maisons entières coulées sur place. Le processus est délibérément conçu pour être de main-d'œuvre et utilise principalement l'approvisionnement local (en dehors du coffrage réutilisable et un additif spécial) pour stimuler l'emploi local et la production locale sans nécessiter l'expérience de la construction préalable.

Modern Building systemsThe moladi building system involves the use of a unique removable reusable recyclable and lightweight plastic formwork mould which is filled with an aerated SABS approved mortar to form the wall structure of a house in only one day. The process involves the assembly of a temporary plastic formwork mould the size of the designed house with all the electrical services plumbing and steel reinforcing located within the wall structure which is then filled with a South African Bureau of Standards approved mortar mix to form all the walls of the house simultaneously. This method eliminates the time and labour intensive work of chasing beam filling plastering and generates no waste

Helen Sauls-August - EC department owes firms R303m for low-cost housingAccording to the DA, the massive debt, which has run far in excess of 30 days, has left small firms floundering, and led to the loss of hundreds of workers due to lay-offs. The party has labelled the situation as “chaotic”.Legislation states that businesses that have completed work for the government must be paid within 30 days, yet there are payments that have not been made after more than 90 days for work in the Alfred Nzo, Chris Hani, Joe Gqabi and OR Tambo municipalities.

The DA has called on the MEC for human settlements, Helen Sauls-August, to address the backlog in payments, which includes:
R81-million in Alfred Nzo Municipality;R73-million in OR Tambo District Municipality;R36-million in Nelson Mandela Bay Metro;R11-million in Buffalo City Metro;R7-million in Amathole District Municipality; andR3-million in Sarah Baartman District Municipality.“A well-run government would ensure contractors receive timely c…

How to build social amenities faster and more affordably

Creating low-cost housing and social infrastructure is a challenge across the globe. A project to create much-needed courthouses in Tanzania may have shown a way ahead.
The Moladi construction system replaces the cumbersome bricklaying process with an approach akin to injection moulding. Workers erect the building’s frame with reusable plastic panels, leaving wall cavities which – once the windows, doors, wiring and pipework have been put in – are filled with a fast-setting, aerated mortar. The building process can be monitored by just one qualified supervisor who manages local workmen with no prior construction experience or skills. The first project, Kibaha District Courthouse, was built for $250 per square metre, which is half the cost of conventional methods. It took six months to complete when it might typically have taken up to t…

Future of Construction - moladi
Strong population growth in many developing and emerging countries and mass urbanization – an estimated 40,000 people moving into African cities every day – create a strong demand for affordable housing. Beyond housing, many developing countries are lagging behind in access to social infrastructure and public services such as schools, hospitals or the justice system. Consider Tanzania: the country faces a shortage of 3,115 courtrooms.

Moladi Construction System aims to address that magnificent challenge by providing a scalable, low-tech and low-skilled affordable building solution using in-situ casting. Founded in 1986 by South African social entrepreneur Hennie Botes, the company aims to replace the classic brick-and-mortar construction with an easier method: using lightweight, removable and re-usable plastic formwork that are filled with a patented fast setting aerated mortar to cast entire houses on-site.
