Emergency Housing South Africa
Homes that you can pack up, load on a truck and put up in 5 minutes
TAHZADE DISASTER MANAGEMENT (TDM) was first introduced to Scottsdale Technology through Steve Cullender, Scottsdale Construction Systems’ local South African agent, back in 2006.
Rajan Harinarian, a South African entrepreneur, came up with the idea of a foldaway home following a fire disaster in KwaZulu Natal when 200 people were left homeless.
The house is a reusable emergency housing unit which could be used as an alternative to housing disaster victims who find themselves living in inhuman conditions
The Complete Package
The Scottsdale system allows TDM to produce all the frames in an environment unaffected by the elements and delivered to the required disaster areas.
The 24 square metre houses takes three minutes to erect. The house can accommodate six people and supplies all with adequate cover during times of disaster.
Utilising the speed of the Scottsdale system and the unique patent of Rajan Harinarain, TDM are able to produce 24 homes in a 24 hour time period.
