MCH Método Constructivo HabitacionalKenya

Start of main content

In Kenya, MCH is planning the construction of 3,000 social housing units for middle-class inhabitants. This will create 7,000 jobs

MCH's proposal for Kenya entails far more than just the construction of housing: it is to get an entire domestic production system underway, building seven factories with an output capacity for construction of between 500 and 1,000 new homes a year in the Kenyan cities of Nairobi, Mombasa, Nakuru, Kisumu, Eldoret, Thika and Nyeri.

The manufacturing will serve as an epicentre for work amongst the local population. The amenities and services will be set up around the factory: kindergartens, schools, canteens... to make life easier for the people living and working there.

A new single-storey modulated housing scheme will be constructed around the factory, designed for sustainability in the local conditions. These are known as "progressive homes". Because they can be increased by adding modules as the family expands.

The projects include two building types: collective housing in blocks and "progressive-development homes".

The "progressive homes" are built initially as a core module, which is affordable to young families, but can be expanded as time goes by, with the incorporation of additional bedrooms or extensions on the plot of land originally chosen.

As families increase their purchasing power over time, the homes can be upgraded from one-bedroom modules to up to three bedrooms. This enables them to keep their home, which grows with their family, so that the social infrastructure never becomes obsolete.

The first phase of these 7 projects includes the construction of 3,000 homes.Two thirds of them will be for social housing, and one third for middle-class housing.

Each of the projects includes the construction of a factory, which will create a total of 7,000 direct jobs and up to 25,000 indirect jobs.

These actions are aimed at greater integration of women within society; giving all adults access to skills and training and ensuring children can all receive a sound basic education.

The main advantages of the working system have been the industrialisation of the construction process and providing the local population with access to the job market.
