70.71 Group intends to tap and develop low cost affordable housing to help compound the scarcity of houses for lower to middle income buyers. These houses will play a little part in the government's drive to reduce the endemic squatter settlements on the fringes of urban centres.
All materials in our developments would be locally sourced environmental sustainability strategies include orientation, cross-ventilation, shading, and rainwater collection, solar water heating and communal solar kitchens. This, combined with wall art by local artists, will create a lively environment where living and working intertwine.
We are also exploring the adoption of healthcare buildings using off-site modular construction for sub-saharan Africa in partnership with UK registered Architects familiar with delivering similar projects to the UK's National Health Service (NHS). This range of modular buildings will include: wards, operating theatres, diagnostic imaging, decontamination facilities, mortuaries and treatment centres.
This sector lends itself to a lot of innovative solutions going forward.
