moladi plastic formwork construction technology was developed as a means of alleviating many of the costly aspects associated with conventional construction methods without compromising on quality or integrity of the structure.

moladi formwork technology was mentioned in a World Economic Forum (WEF) online article. Innovation in Construction - Link

The moladi construction technology replaces the cumbersome bricklaying process with an approach akin to injection moulding. Workers erect the building’s formwork with reusable plastic panels, leaving wall cavities which once the windows, doors, wiring and pipework have been put in place are filled with fast-setting, aerated ­mortar.

All
moladi structures have steel reinforced internal and external walls. The reinforcing design is specified by an independent, certified Engineer; according to the requirements of the structure, which is dependent on soil conditions such as clay, expanding soils, collapsing soils, dolomite etc. The Engineer would also take into account if the structure would be subjected to earth tremors, quakes or hurricanes. As moladi structures are uniformly and monolithically cast, with the reinforcing placed in strategic positions, this makes the building more resistant to seismic movement.

Technologically sophisticated, though simplicity in design.


It is important to realize that use of appropriate technology does not mean turning the clock back to the 18th or 19th century. Although the technology involves simple, easy-to use designs, it is based on sophisticated, 21st -century technologies. One example is the invention of moladi, a modular injection moulded formwork system that is assembled on site in any configuration, allowing the local community to participate in constructing their own homes, schools, clinics, etc.
