Our Age of Anxiety is, in great part, the result of trying to do today’s job with yesterday’s tools and yesterday’s concepts – Marshall McLuhan

Modern building methods using modern building materials

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. The process is deliberately designed to be labour intensive and mostly uses local supplies (apart from the reusable formwork and a special formulated additive) to boost local employment and local production without requiring prior construction experience.
