Mobilized Construction

Abstract

Mobilized Construction mobile software platform enables governments and donor agencies to create micro-contracts / micro-PPPs to directly engage local communities to participate in infrastructure repairs. Our mobile software has been used in Uganda and Kenya to rehabilitate local gravel/dirt roads that were last maintained over 15 years ago and inaccessible after floods from rains. Individuals from local communities receive training on gravel road construction and maintenance and teams of 5 rehabilitate 1 kilometer in 2 weeks. Construction costs are US$1,500 per kilometer, 90% less than World Bank estimates and 70% lower than local costs. Using just a shovel and a cell phone, our software enables road maintenance to spur rural revival by increasing accessibility to hospitals, schools, and markets which increase agricultural and economic incomes for everyone.
