JSI Ready to meet Rwanda’s affordable housing needs



Ever thought of building a house in under five weeks? Well, say no more because JSI, an American international general construction company with many years of construction experience all over the world, is in Rwanda to build the highest standards of houses in short periods of time and at affordable prices.

With JSI, a small affordable house covering an area of 60 square meters can be built in just eight days including its foundation. “If we had a large project, 10 -15 units a week could be completed, giving over 700 new homes to Rwandans every year,” said David French, the Managing Director of JSI in an interview with Hope Magazine last month.

So how does JSI do it?

At JSI, they use a Computer-Aided Design light weight steel system to come up with different designs of a house/building and the system carries out engineering reports for every item drawn.  “If any part is not structurally safe then the system will lock it out until it has been corrected either by increasing the steel gauge or even a re design in some cases, either way it is checking the design all the time,” French explained. He said that once drawn and passed, their machines that produce the steel frames, will only be able to run the components.

“One machine can run around 800 linier meters per hour, which, put that into prospective means a small house can be run in half a day,” French explained. Each item is precision made with every hole notch or cable way millimeter perfect. Every part is labeled for identification and easy assembly. Also, the large panels are constructed in the factory eliminating site time and saving on valuable site space often a problem on job sites.  Most panels can be hand carried, eliminating the need for costly cranes as well.  French believes with the structures they are putting up in Rwanda, people will start to understand what affordable cost effective and quality homes are.

“We will all start to understand and will defiantly get good quality value for money construction and a fast build time as well. As most people borrow money from the bank, it is very important that the bank have houses constructed to standards and in a reasonable time line,” he said. Construction with JSI, the time is typically three times faster than traditional construction and the problem with the latter method is that houses are built using timber frame that unfortunately requires cutting down many trees.

“Our light weight steel system is the way forward as it is basically the tried and tested timber frame system. Steel is also a totally recycled system which in fact it takes around five to six family cars recycled to build a new home!” noted French. JSI is committed to building quality, cost effective homes for Rwanda and will work to help achieve that goal.
