Khartoum — The Executive Director of the National Fund for Housing and Reconstruction, Dr Abdul Rahaman el Tayeb Ayobia, on Wednesday said he expects a huge revolution in housing projects, both the popular and the economic housing projects, as Sudan would draw from the Netherlands expertise in the field of alternative building material and technologies.

He pointed out in a statement to the Sudan News Agency (SUNA) that a delegation from the fund paid a field visit to the Netherland to get a firsthand information about the use of Dutch technology and expertise in alternative building materials and technology specially the use of new building material that uses a combination of raw material with little cement, known as the Aerated Autoclaved Concrete.

He said the new technology is environment friendly and low in cost, particularly when the project involves a huge number of buildings and construction

He said the fund is keen to involve the private sector in the new programme, commending the company that initiated the call for the visit and the Netherlands Company which has the exclusive right in the use of the said materials, Aerated Autoclaved Concrete.
