Iraqi govt. to construct seven housing units in 2011
29/04/2011 10:07

(AKnews) - Iraqi minister for reconstruction and housing said throughout 2011 some seven housing units will be constructed in seven Iraqi provinces. The flats will be allocated to 12,600 families in installments.

Mohammed Daraji told AKnews Thursday the Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has ordered to create the units in Kirkuk, Diyala, Basra, Nineveh, Karbala, Salahaddin and Baghdad to ease the housing crisis.

Each unit will comprise 600 three-floored flats, each constructed on 128 square meters area. There will be three rooms in each floor. All the basic services as school, hospital, electricity, mosque, etc will be provided for the units.

The project, designed by the ministry, is expected to be completed by September, Daraji added.

The flats will be issued to the employees, the families of martyrs, and to a number of people whose daily income is less than 20 US Dollar. The customers are offered to pay in long-term installments while they may also benefit from governmental housing loan.

Those who have benefited form the government housing projects will be excluded if they apply to buy the flats.

correct my maths.

600 units per "estate".
7 estates.

600x7 = 4200 housing units (nothing special, the housing ministry was building an average of 3-4000 units for the past few years, and its wholly inadequate, already discussed on this forum last year)

how do they plan on housing 12000+ families in them? 3 families to a flat?

and since the "LOW COST housing needs" are about 2M units... at this "great rate they will meet the current LOW COST housing shortage in the year 2488.

"Shukri was speaking during a meeting of mayors in the number of n the provinces, held at the headquarters of the Baghdad governorate.
He explained that "civilization civilized urban planning is of the utmost importance and the basis of this understanding of the Council of Ministers has issued many decisions, including the inadmissibility of the division of land and agricultural real estate and fragmentation of the agricultural land turned into housing."
The reports and studies by non-governmental organizations, and international companies, the need for Iraq to 20 years to exceed the housing crisis is suffering, in the time, the Ministry of Housing that Iraq needs to be two and a half million units to overcome the crisis. Iraq has suffered from infrastructure crumbling as a result of wars continuing and the economic blockade, while influenced the previous laws after 2003 and overlap of powers between the ministries and independent bodies and the security situation on the implementation of some projects of housing. The governor of Baghdad, Salah Abdul Razzaq during the conference "in preparation for the summer has to maintain the opening of a water project hope in the laboratory card 1000 cubic meters in time, as the distribution of 100 cars pelvic water is ready to provide drinking water for any area or village may be exposed to water scarcity in the province of Baghdad. "He called the governor of Baghdad and the Ministry of Finance launched 50% instead of 30% of the budget for the development of regions after ratification by the House of Representatives . The Ministry of Municipalities and Public Works of Iraq late last month from the agreement with the United Nations to build 45 thousand housing units and low cost in areas west of the capital Baghdad.

Rotondo Weirich Enterprises (RW) through its setup in the UAE, RW Middle East, has built its first modular precast villa, in Southern Iraq.

The 225 sq m villa which is located in Samawah City in Al Muthanna Governorate, demonstrates the technology and benefits of fast track precast modular concrete homes versus other forms of residential construction in the Gulf region, such as precast panels or traditional masonry construction.

“Imagine assembling a secure, sustainable, villa in just one day, allowing for thousands to be built in half the time of traditional masonry construction. That’s exactly what we have done,” said Ahmed Halet of RW Middle East.

The company shipped the formwork from US, and specialised supervisors temporarily moved to Samawah City to manage and train local Iraqi workers in module construction.

All materials and equipment used to build the villa were procured locally, a statement from RW said.

“Developers are finding RW’s precast modular construction to be an ideal fit for building in the Middle East. By producing the modules onsite, the time and risk usually present when transporting modules from a factory to the site is removed,” Halet said.

Once pulled from the mold, the pieces are erected into place, and finishing begins. Schedules are drastically reduced, there is minimal waste, significant cost savings, and the result is a sustainable, durable, and secure product, he said.

“Precast modular construction is the right fit for new large scale housing due to the fast paced construction, strength, and durability of the materials and technology used,” said Steve Weirich, president and CEO of RW. “Once a project has been slated for construction, one four-bedroom villa can be produced per day per set of formwork.”

The model villa is complete with interior finishes, electrical, and plumbing, and is open for demonstration and viewing purposes, the statement said.

The company’s vision is to produce thousands of the modular precast villas to provide high quality, affordable housing for citizens of Southern Iraq. It intends to expand construction activities to other areas and countries in the Middle East.








“Precast modular construction is the right fit for new large scale housing due to the fast paced construction, strength, and durability of the materials and technology used,” said Steve Weirich, President and CEO of RW. “Once a project has been slated for construction, one 4-bedroom villa can be produced per day per set of formwork.”


With 500 workers and 20 sets of moulds, you could build a 400 high quality, low cost houses a month.

ABU DHABI(Zawya Dow Jones)--Iraq's minister for construction and housing said Monday his country is expecting to spend $9.8 billion on construction between 2012-2016 as the country's oil revenues are expected to soar when production doubles by 2016.

"We are planning to spend $5.8 billion on roads and bridges and infrastructure for 2012-2016 and $4 billion for housing; so $9.8 billion in total," said Minister Mohammed Al Daraji.

The minister added: "Our budget will be doubled by 2016 as oil production increases to 6 million barrels a day."

The minister said he expects his country to close tendering for a $250 million housing project in Shatt Al Arab, Basra, in two or three weeks.

Good news, but I don't think this is low-cost housing or even a housing project at all. It's just redevelopment of areas, building roads, fixing pavements etc. right?

Should be in the other thread..
