Haiti Proposition

Santa Cruz, California

Discussions with John Ancic, Green Building Control Co-ordinator for Santa Cruz City.

Peacebuildings proposes to have the 8 metre Haiti design constructed by Californian high school students to emulate the community based skill set on Haiti. This building would then be transported in modular form to a Californian Shaking Table facility for assembly and test and finally reassembly on the school site as a gathering and council place for students. All this to be confirmed.

John advises that as this is a building for a school we will have to work under the more stringent building codes of the Department of the State Architects (DSA).

Preliminary discussions with Jim Hackett of the DSA. Jim suggests that the shaking table test could pave the way for a specific type approval.

The more demanding the codes the safer the building for the people of Haiti. All Good.
