Community participation  The APC building system is ideal to be implemented by communities in rural areas.  The simplicity  of the construction process eliminates general building errors for which the building industry is well  known for. In conjunction with this, and the fact that building materials can be manufactured on site,  a large amount of unskilled labourers can now be employed. Community acceptance  APC Homes launched an independent market research campaign (see the report) to determine the  general acceptance of the APC building system within the different income classes of South Africa.  Housing categories included BNG, gap housing as well as high income housing up to R2.5 million.   Thorough community acceptance was done within the ABSA International building competition and  accounted for 60% of the vote.
