Creating a new sand-bag building system

Promoting micro enterprise / socio- economic development

Use of local natural material to maximize the empowerment of community:

  • Developed design utilizing available local material i.e. sand & timber poles

  • Adapted an existing sand bag system to eliminate prefabricated metal ladders for timber ladders made from recycled timbers and locally harvested saplings.

  • Test wall structure built in offices of Eco Design.

  • 1:50 scale model was built to facilitate community involvement.

  • A sand bag building manual was produced to assist in training.
