Project Description and Summary of Services

 

 

 

 

 

This project  introduced  brick-making technology to South Africa to transform their housing market. This  market transformation was achieved through capacitation of SMEs in local brick-making technology in order to access mainstream housing practices and activities in South Africa.

This project  also developed and demonstrated business models that aimed to mainstream an innovative brick-making machine that makes cheaper bricks of a high quality, using local materials through SME capacitation. In effect, it provided a model for sustainable job creation (brick-making), whilst supporting local entrepreneurs to be actively involved in providing housing for poor communities in South Africa.
