Once you have assessed the site for the quality of ground conditions, you will need to think about the type of foundations you are going to have. The traditional method is the trench fill system.

It is well worth consulting a structural engineer who will advise on site-specific solutions. If you are engaging a local builder then chances are that you will be building in a traditional form of construction, with blockwork.

There is range of different options available- like laterite blocks, wire-cut or country burnt bricks, hollow blocks etc., offering larger formats and faster build times as well as more un-conventional systems like stabilized mud blocks or aerocon blocks. The three most common choices are brick, laterite and granite stone.

Take a look at the local area to decide which is most acceptable and then talk to a range of suppliers to see what's available and at what cost.

Please feel free to contact us at for more clarification on any topic.
