PECASAS for Peru … Safe & Affordable Housing
It's been an exciting summer. We finished our website, met with the Monolithic team and opened doors to some interesting projects. They have a nice article on our projects. We have new drawings, some designs ready for the Incan areas and we're ready to build in PERU. We have been awaiting department reorganizations after elections and now believe the Humala Government is prepared to advance on promises made to low-income families … Vacation is over and we have our running shoes on.
Recently, by mysterious coincidence, I met Frank… under odd circumstances. He has become a great supporter of Sube and it's mission to house low-income families ..He is directly responsible for our wonderful new website, he set-up our non-profit entity and is a constant source of inspiration.
This project is in Indonesia.. build by Domes For The World.. and Monolithic Dome.
Jorge Olivera is from Peru, lives in Idaho and is now our Director of Marketing & Communication … He has conferenced with the team in Peru and positioned our ideas for success. His excellent communication has changed the dynamics. Carlos is working with a non-profit to build low-income homes in Jaen.. a mountain/jungle area of the north. They are interested in our Pecasa (built with Basalt), because of PRICE and SAFETY.
Many people are familiar with SUBE's Pecasa: interested in our price and safety and now with the addition of Basalt, interested in a home that will last, maintenance free for generations. With a proper presentation the world will come to know more reasons to love the Pecasa.
You can see below the Indonesia project after a few years .. it is beautiful and officially has the full support of the U.N. and government officials. This project was built with minimal infrastructure to bring the MOST homes to the greatest number of people. It is a great example of EFFICIENCY and ECONOMY.
ANNOUNCEMENT .. Monolithic Domes has exciting new technology that makes Dome building quicker, stronger and less expensive. The addition of BASALT (CLICK here for video of Basalt) will widen the gap in price between the PECASA and traditional construction. The cost for a Pecasa now is about half the cost of building a similar size square home. Additional information on BASALT is available on the RockRebar Website. 42m2 (452sf)
A PECASA cost much less to build than traditional housing, it takes days instead of weeks or months to build and can be built with unskilled local labor. Best of all it gives near complete protection from earthquakes, wind, water or salt. Just a few of the reasons the world needs to build Pecasas.
All of these reasons are especially important to non-profits who come to PERU with donor money and a mandate to help as many families as possible. (CLICK HERE for ecoshells in developing nations.)
