As a demand-driven institution, TDAU's selection of products is largely defined by the need for them in the field.  The construction industry in Lusaka and other urban areas of Zambia has grown considerably in recent years and the unit has responded accordingly.  By utlizing this large group of end-users as an integral part of product development and innovation, TDAU has developed and refined their machines to suit to the consumer appropriately.  At times, this has meant the development of manual rather than electrical machine operation, and other times portability becomes an issue.  Regardless of the specifics, TDAU's alternative building material machines and other construction products are constantly evolving to meet the needs of our customers.
