Romatherm®: Used in Subsidised Housing

SANS 10400-XA requires that all new buildings have a legislated amount of insulation. Romatherm Polyester Insulation Blanket is a cost effective insulator that is quick and easy to install. Houses with insulated roofs and ceilings are simply more comfortable and healthier to live in. These thermally improved houses result in substantial energy savings which when multiplied by the number of houses in each community, greatly reduces the power demand on the already “strained” power grid in that area.

Housing a key driver in infrastructure rollout

Ahead of the presentation of the Human Settlements Budget Vote 2012-13 to the National Assembly last week (9 May 2012), Minister of Human Settlements, Tokyo Sexwale, highlighted the progress the department has made not only in the continuing development of housing and human settlements but also in rooting out the corruption that has, over past years, undermined the delivery of decent housing.  Interestingly, Minister Sexwale raised the question of whether government should not be turning to sizeable, established contractors and their BEE partners rather than the “wheelbarrow and bakkie brigade” to support its housing delivery commitments. He said that while some emerging contractors are genuinely committed to building houses of sound and long-lasting quality, many had shown themselves to be fly-by-nights, abusing taxpayers’ money and government’s resources.

Clay brick – a frontrunner for housing delivery

It is reported that between 1994 and June 2010, government financed the building of over 2.7 million homes for South Africans, giving shelter to more than 13 million people. Government spending on housing delivery increased from R4.8 billion in 2004/05 to R10.9 billion in the 2009/10 financial year. Yet there are still thousands of informal settlements across the country and more than 12 million South Africans are still in need of proper homes.
