French Translation Veerhouse Voda Haiti was contracted by a renowned Haitian organization to build five school units in five schools within the Plateau Central region. The five units will be delivered in 21 weeks with each being an addition to an existing school. The additions include three new classrooms and a kitchen.
After having built many schools, health centers and offices, the EPS producing firm in Haiti is beginning a new adventure in the Plateau Central. These five units of three classes each will help to increase education levels while improving the school’s kitchen organization for their daily meals. “We are pleased for the opportunity to help increase access to education in the Plateau Central region. The expansion of these five schools will greatly improve the education of children in the area by enabling them to pursue their 7th, 8th and 9th fundamental years near their homes. Thanks to our technology, the structures will be built in record time and will also provide a better thermal insulation than that of traditional structures,” said Brendon Brewster, who heads Veerhouse Voda Haiti. “We are very honored to have been entrusted with this project,” he said.
The head of the construction department of the project said, “Veerhouse is a company that has a very good reputation in Haiti, and more specifically that works in compliance with the standards of construction and operates while respecting delivery deadlines. ”
Present in Haiti since 2012, Veerhouse Voda specializes in sustainable building from expanded polystyrene (EPS), a material that allows for expedited building times, up to five times faster than traditional construction. Fast, reliable, seismic and hurricane resistant, this economical process is famous for its incredible insulating qualities. It also saves significant energy by reducing heat and therefore energy consumption. During construction, the project will provide work for many members of the community, as well as the administrative and educational jobs that will be created from the addition to the schools.
