The National Housing Enterprise (NHE) is currently constructing 65 houses at Gobabis, 50 at Omuthiya, 70 at Okahao, 33 at Tsandi, and 24 at Ondangwa.

The houses will be constructed predominantly through phase 2 of the NHE’s turnkey construction model (RFP) and are expected to cost N$75 million.

Through this model, NHE contracts with private developers on a turnkey basis. This model requires NHE to partner with private financiers who construct houses using their own capital and are only paid after the sale of the constructed houses.

This is in addition to the ongoing construction of the Informal Settlement Upgrading Program in Windhoek with other stakeholders such as the Ministry of Urban and Rural Development, the City of Windhoek (COW), and the Khomas Regional Council.

This project seeks to construct 1200 houses in Windhoek's informal areas. So far, more than 400 houses have been constructed under the informal settlement program.

Most of the projects have commenced as of November 2022.
