Phase 2 of housing in Thembalethu

 

The second phase of the UISP housing project in Thembalethu is in full swing with families having received 71 of the 251 houses that will be built. Phase 2 of the UISP which forms part of the Thembalethu: Upgrading of Informal Settlements Programme (UISP) commenced on 19 January 2018 with the completion date being 31 December 2018.  A total of 251 houses will be built in this phase each measuring 42 square metres.

 

Lawula and Marnol JV (Joint Venture) are the appointed contractors.The cost of a serviced property (with all municipal services) amounts to R43 000 and the top structures R111 000.

The Enhanced People’s Housing Process (EPHP) Housing Programme was implemented in these projects, which added a lot more value to the project because the participants were also given the opportunity to have a say in the product that was delivered to them. The normal norms and standards of the Department of Human Settlements are far exceeded in this project as a 42 square metre  house was built  and the whole house will be handed over fully tiled, with a tiled roof, aluminium windows, kitchen cabinets, and outdoor lights. The normal standard size for housing for the Department of Human Settlements is 40m2.
