Mud brick housing for Fiji’s poor

Golden Oldies have been researching the dream of providing alternative and affordable housing for marginalised Fijians. Those living in tin houses are susceptible to the monsoon rains, cyclones and now climate change. Climate refugees needing to resettle on ground above the shoreline.

Developing countries embrace mud-brick housing but it has never been trialled in Fiji.

Team members and Fijians have now produced 6,000 mud bricks and had them scientifically tested to prove that surpass the building code for strength. Now we are in the final stages of planning before we start building the first ever culturally adapted design Fijian house made with mud bricks.
