May 2012 – Haiti Foundations have not CHANGED

Volunteers are scheduled to build homes on these foundations in May of 2012

A little over 2-years ago the concrete structures of Haiti crumbled down and crushed thousands to death. It was images of this destruction that was the genesis of this blog.

We have been active in suggesting that Haiti’s concrete construction processes are flawed due to a broken concrete supply chain. Some have listened and have provide better tools and training to build up the local systems.

Haiti needs a better concrete foundation and supply chainOthers have not gotten the message… They still feel it is OK to send in well-meaning volunteers to help build a home using very poor methods.

I know that many engineers, architects and concrete professionals read the CementTrust blog.

Would you allow your family’s home to be built on this foundation?
