Strategy

KNOWLEDGE

Through years of experience in design, construction and material research, C-re-aid has become an expert in building in Tanzania. We have acquired the know-how to translate our ambitious designs into affordable, yet sustainable buildings. 


The key to success is to be surrounded by motivated and good designers and constructors. We have focussed to train young architects and local craftsmen into the techniques that make C-re-aid who we are. 


In the future, we will continue to train architects, engineers, and craftsmen (fundi) to become strong professionals in the field of sustainable architecture. 

DESIGN

In a world where architects constantly want to be “more creative”, “more innovative” and “more superstar”, C-re-aid wants to bring it back to reality to serve those in need.

We do this by creating a simple design that is complex through the use of ecologically responsible materials, whilst also reducing/ limiting costs.


C-re-aid continues with the realization of community projects (infrastructure for healthcare, education, and sanitation), building with the ecological materials that we are constantly developing.


These projects will act as a promoting tool for our building techniques, and display the possibilities of C-re-aid architecture to the community members.



MATERIALS

The building industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world. With the transport of all the materials to construction sites amplifying the problem.


C-re-aid is developing building techniques from locally sourced materials. We believe in commercializing, popularising and modernizing these ecological building techniques in order to achieve a sustainable building culture.


Additionally, our materials are affordable which enables us to target people from different financial backgrounds.
