A WORD ABOUT US
NCE has obtained the sole distributorship for Namibia from Hydraform International in 2019. After gaining 15 years experience in the residential building sector, NCE decided to explore and concentrate more in alternative building systems to create more aﬀordable housing for Namibia.
Hydraform is the leading Alternative Building Technology in the developing world by Innovating, partnering, training and building.
We believe in fair business practice, ethical, open and honest dealings with customers, and a willingness to see our customer’s business grow.
OUR SYSTEM MAKES USE OF:
Interlocking Block making using Hydraform hydraulic block making machines:
Hydraform machines offer the ease of production in a factory as well as on-site production. Onsite production saves transportation cost and ensures uninterrupted supply chain. These machines are robust and suitable for onsite mobility. There is flexibility to use variety of locally available raw materials such as fly ash, subsoil, agricultural residues and other waste materials mixed with sand and cement. Re-cycling this waste in block making helps sustainability environment.
Interlocking masonry for constructing walls that are largely dry stacked or using minimal mortar/slurry:
These interlocking blocks have tongue and groove profile on 4 faces of block that helps auto fix among the blocks which enhances structural stability, thus reducing the requirement of mortar or slurry. The walls made up through this technique hardly require cement plaster as the pre-pointed straight masonry and face brick finish renders an elegant and attractive look.
Ways we help you save money,
Time and increase your productivity
Local Material – Hydraform Block making machines hydraulically compress soil (earth) mixed with cement into solid blocks.
Cost effective production – Hydraform interlocking blocks are manufactured with only 10% cement to achieve 7MPa blocks after 14days of curing.
Cost effective construction – No burning of blocks – cure for 14days during site clearance and laying foundations.
Speed – When cured, the soil-cement blocks can be dry-stacked in the superstructure representing as much as a 30% saving in cost and time.
Reduced labour costs – Interlocking blocks can be laid 3 times faster than cement blocks therefore less labour time per house and faster construction.
Local Delivery – Hydraform machines are mobile for onsite block production and reducing transport.
Earth (soil) blocks are thermally efficient reducing energy requirements, cool during warm weather and warm during cool weather.
Our high-quality, durable and originally-developed and designed equipment is made using the very best steel alloys and components that are built to last. As a result, our parts are not interchangeable with inferior machines that quickly break down - as built by Chinese manufacturers. It’s for this reason that we unfortunately cannot repair such machines.
So, don’t settle for less... Buy quality and dependable Hydraform products, and save more money in the longer run.
