Concrete masonry: Thuthukani Peoples Housing Project – Mfuleni, Cape Town

ConcreteCMA_Inca_M1-3_Thuthukani_HousingThis low cost housing project involved the construction of 40m² and 50m² houses using recyclable concrete products and incorporating other environmentally friendly features such as solar water heating and wind-driven electricity.

Inca Concrete Products’ M140 concrete building blocks were used to build the single-leaf external walls. The M140 block has a thermal resistance approved by the NHBRC and this, together with ease of laying, makes for a very economical unit. The blockwork on this development is neat and the external rendering is smooth. Internal finishes are smart and attractive.
