After the January 12th earthquake in Haiti an engineering trade publication suggested that Haiti needed an “Overhaul” and then suggested that someone volunteer. They said “The engineering and construction community can play an important role by mobilizing to help….”
Many are recommending that Haiti overhaul their construction practices and build better economic opportunities for their people. American ingenuity and vision have been challenged to find a way to help with these objectives.
A group of Oregon machinery designers took up the challenge and volunteered to find solutions to Haiti’s poor concrete construction processes.
Hands have been raised, yet it is still hard to get the attention of those who can make a plan for Haiti really come to the forefront.
We hope that someone in the power-elite of Haiti can see the hands waving and can make policy to help build a strong Haiti.
