Rebuilding Haiti

It seems there is hope for Haiti! I’ve been impressed with what I’ve read about President elect Michel Martelly, especially his emphasis on “permanent, prefabricated homes”.

Martelly inherits a massive housing & humanitarian problem, to be sure. Based on my experience with SIPS and concrete block construction in the Caribbean, I believe Martelly can choose either fast or permanent, but not both – and definitely not in his first 100 days.

The answer is Ferrocement. My company, am-cor inc., has developed a proposal which would allow Martelly to permanently house:

  • 100,000 people
  • in 100 days
  • for US $69/person

All using truly safe hurricane & earthquake proof construction, in the form of Ferrocement housing Kits.
