Homes for Haiti - Made by Haitians for Haitians
Through invitation by the Government of Haiti and the Clinton Foundation, Pacific Green Innovations in conjunction with its Haitian partners have jointly built a 53sqm model home for the Build Back Better Communities expo in Zoranje, Haiti. This home was constructed utilizing PGI's honeycomb structural composite (HSC) panel. Through the use of this panel technology we have demonstrated that a local team of trained workers can easily manufacture and assemble a fully functional move in ready home in less than one week at a cost of less than USD$10,000.
The panels for the home were constructed locally with PGI's proprietary composite core sandwiched between two facings of magnesium oxide board. All of the core materials and panels were made and assembled locally by Haitians in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. As much as possible, local materials and workers were utilized in the construction and finishing of the home, this includes locally made windows and doors as well as locally procured products such as tile, paint, concrete and fixtures.
Cost of a 53sq/m finished home (utilizing concrete slab foundation) is $9,999usd.
