FinnBUILDER
THE SMART WAY TO BUILD

Half the cost, double the strength and twice as fast.

This makes FinnBUILDER the ideal choice whenever water storage projects are being considered. A FinnBUILDER Reservoir is an effective long term solution. The FinnBUILDER Circular is the ideal application for building Reservoirs. The FinnBUILDER reservoir technology was established in 1946 and Farmers have found it to be a robust solution for water storage. They have found FinnBUILDER reservoirs to be: -

Very strong build at 35 to 40 MPa concrete strength to ensure no leaking. Bricks are generally manufactured at 5 - 7 MPa.
Easy to use relatively easy building process. The Circular is packaged with a Detailed Construction Guide that gives a detailed explanation of the process.
Cost effective half the cost of building with brick.
No Plastering panel release leaves a surface that can be finished successfully with a plaster skim incorporating a mortar water proofing agent.

DIMENSIONS

There are two Circular moulds available:

  • 5 meter diameter (red)
  • 8 meter diameter (black)

In addition the Circular is adjustable to build walls both 220 mm and 150 mm thick. The mould is 600 mm long, 220 mm high and weighs approximately 18 kgs.

It is advisable to build your Reservoirs no higher than 2,2 metres in height. This will restrict water pressure when full and reduce the risk of leaks. Vertical reinforcing steel is detailed for heights greater than 1,5 meters.

OWN SOIL

Many people who build with FinnBUILDER out in the country, are able to use either their own soil, or suitable building sand that they are able to find in their immediate vicinity. In this way they are able to build at very low cost since their only material cost is cement, stone and steel re-enforcing. The Detailed Construction Guide includes a simple soil test that will confirm the suitability of your local soil.














HOME CONSTRUCTION

Welcome to FinnBUILDER ...
the smart way to build

This is the easiest system of house construction, commercial property construction or industrial property construction. In fact it's the easiest way to build just about anything. It's half the cost of building with brick, double the strength and twice as fast. FinnBUILDER is an innovative alternative building system which is fully accredited and backed by major Banking institutions.

 


LOW COST HOUSES CONSTRUCTION

As winner of the All Africa Innovative Housing competition run by the South African Government, the NHBRC and ABSA Bank, FinnBUILDER can claim to be Africa's best building innovation. It is an alternative building system. The system makes use of easy to operate concrete slip forms and 15 MPa reinforced no-slump concrete. This ensures that structures are strong and yet all of this is achieved at surprisingly low cost.

 


AFFORDABLE HOUSING
CONSTRUCTION

FinnBUILDER is uniquely positioned to assist developers to contain building costs and maintain quality standards. Substantial cost savings are achievable. On a 200 m2 house and boundary walls, a developer will save about R 80 000. On a 300 m2 house, savings of about R 130 000 are being realized.
