Construction on the Phase One classroom building continues at "College Coeur Immacule de Marie" the all-girls school in Bois Verna, a historic neighborhood of Port au Prince. The design and construction team plans to lead a tour of the building site with the students and teachers who have been very curious about what is going on behind the construction fence. We will show them the massive rebar work going inside the concrete. The foundation is almost completed. This project alone stimulated the recovery of about 25 construction jobs. See below...
