Tackling housing deficit while shaping a sustainable future


What does a sustainable future look like to you? G-Tellus is redefining the construction industry by merging profit and sustainability. With a 60 million unit housing deficit in Africa, we are creating a path to safe and affordable housing that is resilient to climate change, socially inclusive, and technologically advanced. Unlike the ordinary wood fuel-fired bricks and cement blocks, we use cleantech electric kilns powered by solar and grid electricity, optimizing heat energy in the firing process of our bricks. G-bricks are made of clay with modified properties to last and withstand the test of time. We are shaping a sustainable future as we tackle the housing challenge without disrupting the ability of future generations to meet their needs.
