How to build with Klevabrick

Klevabrick ™ offers preferable housing construction delivering a state-of-the-art product that can withstand earth tremors and hurricanes.
Klevabrick is one of the cheapest ways to build a house in South Africa, without compromising on quality
The Klevabrick concept widens the scope for ordinary people to self-build. It offers a cheaper alternative to bricks/blocks with faster construction times. Contractors can make use of unskilled or semi-skilled workers, effectively saving you time and money.

As Klevabrick can be manufactured on site, construction in remote areas becomes more affordable. This opens up the possibility for new developments in rural parts of Southern Africa.

With the continuous rising costs of traditional building materials and systems the need for an affordable and effective alternative have become more prominent.
