Sometimes we say we are brick makers - but our product is actually not comparable to conventional bricks. We produce various shapes of building blocks which form part of our Modular Assembly System (MAS). Our building blocks are superior in all aspects compared to an ordinary brick.
We believe in innovation and a new way of building that tackles the current and future challenges in the housing industry.
Therefore, the design of the MAS blocks follows clear design principles: simplicity, durability, affordability, sustainability and empowerment.
Simplicity: The MAS (Modular Assembly System) blocksare designed to make building a house as simple and as fast as possible. The Lego-like blocks fit together perfectly, allowing everyone to become a builder himself. MAS blocks are not mortared or glued together, but are plugged in and tightened by means of threaded rods, ground bars and ring beams. The wall systems are erected with only 5 types of blocks, which nevertheless make it possible to display all right-angled floor plans in a 10 cm grid.
Durability: Our MAS blocks are made of polymer concrete, a risk-free, super strong material for long-term use under permanent load with almost unbeatable physical properties.
Affordability: Simplicity and durability are the foundations for affordability. Our technology allows very competitive pricing in the housing industry with higher quality standards and longevity than the competitors can offer.
Sustainability: The life cycle analysis shows that building with MAS blocks saves approx. 60% CO2 compared to the construction of conventional houses (production + construction).
Empowerment: With a MAS kit you can build immediately without using expensive machinery. Smaller houses can be completely built in a few days. Also, we are able to use desert sand as resource for our MAS blocks, a worldwide novelty.
The possibilities offered by this invention have a profound impact on the traditional value chain. Therefore, we are looking for partners like developers and architects who want to take this new path with us.
Social and private housing will benefit from the stability and speed of our construction method and from a significantly improved price-performance ratio.
MAS Blocks revolutionise the way of building.
Simple, efficient and environmentally friendly.
MAS stands for Modular Assembly System. The blocks are our core product that we produce in our factory in Brakwater and are made of polymer concrete - a material that is four times as strong as conventional cement-based concrete.
This allows us to innovate on the geometry of the blocks to get them a smart shape and structure. Thus, we are able to build every building by needing only five different blocks shapes.
The MAS blocks are stacked on ground bars that also incorporate the threads. The upper end of all construction blocks consists of ring beams for a form-fit connection with the last block row.

With a total of five basic blocks, all straight wall surfaces can be easily created in any geometry. All building physics standards are achieved with a friction-locked bond for permanent use or a corresponding screw connection for temporary construction.
Due to the building physics properties of polymer concrete, the buildings do not require a foundation if the subsoil is solid enough, but are erected on horizontally laid base strips made of the same material.
For your individual project we are able to calculate the best configuration / set of MAS blocks that you need.
With MAS blocks it is easy to build even larger residential areas, schools, children's facilities, shopping centres etc., in the shortest time. Gain a clear competitive advantage with this system.
Namibia's tourism and agriculture is booming. With our MAS blocks you can easily build even in rural areas. Also, your customers will love the idea of a green building that has a significant lower CO2 footprint.
