Our prefab houses have been detailed engineered to be able to withstand the tropical environment of East Africa, our products are designed to be fire resistant, water/moisture resistant, sound insulated and have a feature and natural air circulation to reduce energy consumption. Our target is to produce quality, modern, sustainable and eco-friendly houses that are affordable, by using high quality products imported from Europe, Asia and local materials to build our houses.

The company has successfully earned a tender to build prefab houses in Fumba Town Development (a real estate project by CPS), we are currently contracted to build 200 prefab houses for the project's first phase, as a significant increase of demand for Prefab houses has increased in the project we are expecting to have much more houses to build in the upcoming phase of the project.
