Calling on Masonry Contractors for a Review
I have a bit of experience in concrete block construction, yet I need someone with more knowledge to examine this image and let me know what you think… Also take a look at the foundation stem-wall of the home in the back of the image and let me know if this is a best practice.
These may be complete correct, but I am not sure?
It is my understanding that these homes are being constructed by a trained contractor, so my concerns may be unfounded. Anybody have any thoughts on this?
Until we hold builders accountable for their work in Haiti, the people will never be able to really trust their homes. The Haitian government really needs to establish a building code and enforcement system as a part of a greater concrete supply chain within the country.
We will continue to display these types of construction images and ask this question: Would I live in what I claim to be safe housing for the poor?
