Imagine if something came along for emerging nations that made a positive impact on housing, education, environment, jobs and the economy all at once? There is such a thing and its called NevHouse.
NevHouse adopts a grass roots approach to ensure that the needs of individuals and communities are met. This means developing tailor made solutions based on careful research and assessment.
1. Research & Assessment.
The United Nations estimates that there are at least 1.3 billion people worldwide who have inadequate shelter. What’s worse, most of these people suffer from poor sanitation and many do not have access to electricity or clean drinking water. We believe that there is no one-size-fits-all solution which is why we choose to undertake careful studies in every community that we build.
2. Tailor Made Solutions.
Our pre-fabricated homes, school class rooms, medical clinics and other community structures are tailor made to meet the geographic, climatic, lifestyle and spiritual needs of those who use them. Our lead architects and engineers work with local architects and engineers to create places of sanctuary for indigenous people.
3. Acceptance & Participation.
Our grass roots approach means securing local acceptance from government to landowners to clan leaders to the men, women and children whose lives will be impacted, and then securing their participation in the building of their community. Our approach means that entire communities can be built quickly and effectively and in a sustainable fashion.
4. Rapid Deployment.
Our homes, schools and medical clinics are modular in format and tailored to the climatic, spiritual and lifestyle nuances of each market. Each can be constructed on site in just 5 days or less and works either on or off the power grid. This means that entire communities can be rebuilt quickly, restoring hope and dignity for those who are in desperate need - without delay.
5. Social Assessment
The large scale rapid roll out of the Nev House solution has a positive impact on housing, education, and health. Our impact in each of these areas is measured by independent assessors and the results made available to the government and NGO's we work with. In countries requiring large scale 'multi-year' developments we undertake to build local factories which can make a positive impact on employment, skill development as well as potential GDP growth through exports to neighbouring countries.
