– an innovative enterprise and sustainable business partner, in creating low cost, flexible and modular safe living environments for people
We will through our innovative and development oriented enterprise, contribute to a better life for challenged people in the world.
We deliver cost-effective solutions for building safe temporary and semi-permanent flexible and modular schools, hospitals, health clinics and homes. Patent for this concept has been optained for South Africa and is pending for East Africa and Europe.
In a collaboration with the local population in the relevant countries, we wish to provide a basis for local production. At the same time, it will facilitate local employment and economic growth for the population and the communities as a whole.
The Globe Housing ®
• Building size 37 m2, including a loft 53 m2.
• Flexible and modular.
• Minimal maintenance.
• insulated to create a good indoor climate
Can be joint into clusters or erected individually and taken apart as an assembly kit, making the product mobile and recyclable.
Built by fiber-reinforced concrete and the buildings are fire-proof, weatherresistant, insulated and energy-efficient.
Structural integrity is tested by the Danish Technical University (DTU).
We offer a full turn-key solution based on local production of the housing elements. On request we estimate the price for a raw building, depending on the number of units, location and soil conditions.
A “raw” building will have roof, walls, insulation and doors, but without amenities.
However, the building will be prepared for the installation of amenities according to the purpose of the building:
E.g. the price for kitchen, toilet, bath, and solar PV is depending on local prices and the local environment.
The Globe Housing® building concept contributes to fulfill the UN 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
