This is a modern modular home for communities living in rural and urban areas. This building can save 50% of the time and 30% of the cost compared to conventional buildings. This is 100% more environmentally friendly due to the quality of material used in its production. It saves energy, reducing both heating and cooling bills. It can be used across the world for all terrains and can be shipped anywhere in the world in weeks.
This is another modular building for the community. This building multiple usage as a laboratory and health care clinics for the community.
This is pre-fabricated modular building to be used as a Community hospital in rural areas. The idea is to provide the basic infrastructure to help the community with basic health care needs. We are manufacturing these modular buildings in our factory and ship them to site after completion. These buildings are equipped with all the necessary health care equipment, IT and telecommunication system. These buildings are safe and environmentally friendly.
This is a modern school building in East Africa build out of shipping containers. This is easy to ship and install and is very cost-effective, safe and environmentally friendly building. This can be used across all the rural areas to develop schools and provide education to the children. In the evenings it can work as a vocational community center for the village and train the adult new skills as vocational training centers.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Specify both the social and the environmental impact of your work
We have built more than 15000 modular buildings till date. Our buildings have saved millions of dollars worth of site works, energy, and transportation cost. Our buildings save on an average 30% of your cooling and heating bills in a month so you can calculate yearly savings only. The time to construct is reduced by half. So you can also calculate both financial and time savings when you reduce your labor hours by half.
Financial sustainability plan: How is this initiative financially supported? How will you ensure its financial sustainability long-term?
Our business has been sustainable with Earned income and we believe to do the same in years to come. Although for growth and scalability of our business we would like to take this company public so more people can contribute in making our world a better place to live.
Unique value proposition: What makes your initiative innovative? How does your project differ from other organizations working in the same field?
We are innovating our product by using nature where ever is possible. The lighting system in our building is based on solar energy system. The wall as insulated with rock wool to reduce the heating and cooling bills. The floors are insulated with reusable thermal wood to reduce the sound and heat loss factor. Our buildings are designed for living!
Founding story: Share a story about the "Aha!" moment that sparked the beginning of this initiative.
The entire concept began with the basic human need of shelter. We need a shelter to do anything in life, call it a home, call it an office, call it a gym, call it a hospital. The need has been there since the very beginning of the human race and it has been evolving since. We started our business to provide these buildings to all the local construction and oil and gas business in the region for their project sites. Since it is very hot to work in the middle of a desert at 50 degrees Celcius. Our buildings provide them with shelters to work and live so they can complete their projects.
