Beyond brick and mortar construction

The inefficiencies of moulding a brick or block in a mould then tasking an artisan to lay them. Then chase the walls for water and electrical services. Then relying on another artisan to plaster the walls. Dependent on the skills and ability of artisans to produce a house. At what cost?

Conventional brick and mortar construction process:

  • How many bricks or blocks are laid per day?
  • Are the quantity of bricks or blocks laid per day the same for every day of the week?
  • What happens when the bricklayer does not come to work?
  • Is the mortar (dahga) mix to lay the bricks or blocks consistent?
  • How many bricks or blocks are wasted or broken or stolen?
  • Are walls straight plumb and square?
  • How long to chase for electricity piping?
  • How long to chase for water piping?
  • How long does it take to do beam filling?
  • How long does it take to plaster window reveals?
  • Is plaster thickness consistent or does it vary?
  • Is the plaster mix consistent?
  • Any rework?
  • Rubble to clear?
  • At what cost?

This leads to the question: Are the inefficiencies of the brick and mortar construction process making homes unaffordable for most?

Beyond brick and mortar homes

Beyond brick and mortar homes

 
Casting a house in a moladi mould employing unskilled workers – Eliminating the dependence on skilled artisans - Eliminating the need to chase, plaster and beam fill. Completed in a day. At a known cost.

moladi Construction Process

  • Erecting the formwork by unskilled labour is constant.
  • No stays.
  • No propping.
  • No consumables.
  • Formwork holds a constant precise volume.
  • Mortar a known cost.
  • Mortar is a known consistent compressive strength.
  • Reinforcing a known weight/cost.
  • Time to position and bind reinforcing constant.
  • Filling the formwork is consistent.
  • Removing the formwork is constant.
  • Labour is not skilled.

Reduce cost of housing construction
 
designed to create jobs for the unemployed Food for the hungry Shelter for the homeless

What if we told you the solution to the global youth unemployment and the million-plus housing backlog was already in our back yard? And what if we told you jobless, unskilled people could become entrepreneurs in the house building sector and be able to build homes in their communities at a fraction of the cost and in less than a week?
 
What would you say if we told you there is a company that is not only prepared to certify you, but to empower you too and give you a market, technology and the opportunity to grow personally and professionally? Build a community in a month
