Low Cost Housing South Africa
Sustainable, affordable housing: 8 African countries that need it most
Karmod Housing – innovative Low cost housing south africa designs & RDP accommodation – for a transportable, low cost, quality housing solution in record time.
A vast majority of African cities are becoming homes to thousands of people everyday thanks to the rapid urbanisation, population explosion, migration and influx of people into major cities. There’s an unparalleled demand for affordable homes across Africa, particularly in countries such as Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Nigeria, South Africa, Côte d’Ivoire and Uganda.
Low cost housing south africa projects: While there have been local and global investors who have invested in most affordable housing projects, we look at how government bodies facilitate in meeting the requirements through various schemes and policy initiatives that favour low-income groups.
Karmod House is looking for a construction partner. We produce steel structural elements of the house and organize fast delivery worldwide. Like elsewhere, in africa the modern technology is being used in housing building towards more affordable house low cost
Prefabricated Building with Karmod
A tried and tested Prefabricated building system for the new century that matches quality with delivery speed and gives the owner a magnificent opportunity to gain some easily learned construction skills that result in a substantial cost saving.
Yet for a vast number of people in South Africa, displacement and land economics mean that the form of Social housing constructed by the state is that of the single dwelling home. Low cost housing traditionally takes the form of simple brick structures in monoculture swathes.
The rate of urbanization in Africa is rising rapidly so much such that local governments and municipal authorities are unable to keep up with their housing needs. Karmod provides low cost housing solutions through the financing and execution of large scale affordable housing schemes in partnership with local governments in Africa.
With the likelihood that this is going to continue as a prominent model going forward, the opportunities for housing innovation are very real. Improvements in speed, cost and quality are all needed.
Many different housing models and systems have been proposed as solutions to the low cost and informal housing market around the world. Every engineer has an idea for a quick way to build houses, and the chance of seeing an architectural competition that doesn’t propose a new form of modular (and almost always shipping container based) low cost housing is rather slim these days. So rather than a new proposal, it is useful to filter those options by examining the constraints and opportunities around low cost and informal Social housing in South Africa.

Flexible & Adaptable Prefabricated Building Kits
The Karmod prefabricated cavity wall system allows for no compromise in quality, as well as providing the customer with maximum flexibility in modular house design. If you do not select one of our standard units, merely fax or email us your design.

The Prefabricated house is delivered in kit form, foundations dug, and erected in two days complete with roof, doors, windows, full electrical reticulation and plumbing. Completion requires plastering of the exterior wall panels, laying the concrete floor, painting and glazing.
Where soil conditions involve heaving clay, or there is the danger of flood or of earthquake, we have designed structural features that cater for these adverse conditions.
Low Cost Affordable Prefabricated Housing
Costs are saved by the completion process being controlled either by the end buyer, or on their behalf by track housing contractors who need to concentrate only upon a few elements. Thus costs can be cut drastically as the vagaries of site time and crime are minimised.
