Affordable housing is housing that is appropriate for the needs of a range of very low to moderate income households. As a rule of thumb, housing is usually considered affordable if it costs less than 30 percent of gross household income.

Ghana’s housing deficit was at about 1.8 million houses in 2016. The annual housing demand of

100 000 units is not being met. This becomes a great opportunity for the construction companies in Ghana and across West Africa.

Expandable Polystyrene has become an essential part on the development of affordable housing in developing countries. We can find many success stories using EPS for housing across the African continent from South Africa to Kenya.

The EPS raw material has demonstrated all the benefits it brings to help the housing deficit in Africa.

We have developed a simple quotation tool for your EPS affordable housing project. Please click on the upper part of the web page to use it.

The main benefits of building with EPS are:

It is cost effective compared to traditional methods in construction time, energy savings and final cost. Building a house with EPS takes 1/5 the time compared to traditional building methods.

  • Its safer than conventional construction methods. Withstanding earthquakes and landslides better.
  • Easy to transport.
  • Easy to install.
  • Provides thermal insulation that helps you save energy and protect the environment.
  • Lifetime durability.
  • Resistance to humidity.
  • Design flexibility (Versatile).
