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 three years using traditional methods. On the back of this success, the Tanzanian government has committed to building another 11 district courthouses using this method.

The product to stimulate the economy in 1920 was Henry Ford’s Model T - Far removed from Maslow's hierarchy of needs - Not "Food and Ford" but "Food and Shelter" and a job producing product. Combining economic development, the high unemployment rate and skills development, not being provided nor addressed in an antiquated education system, our goal is to stimulate the economy by "producing Model M" A home… A basic need and thereby stimulating economy and the secondary supply chain taking advantage of local resources creating production of locally produced goods.
