Want To Build A Medical Clinic In Haiti? What To Consider
Do you want to build a medical clinic in Haiti? This is a tall order to undertake, but an important one as well. Much of the medical care in Haiti is inadequate and the people who work in existing clinics spend much of their time working around the building’s problems.
A medical clinic in Haiti needs to be strong, tough, and reliable for not only the medical professionals, but for the communities they serve. Veerhouse Voda specializes in steel frame and EPS construction with production facilities in both Haiti and the DR. Our buildings, including medical clinics, have significant advantages over others.
If you are thinking about building a medical clinic in Haiti, there are some things that you need to consider.
Quality Buildings Inspire Trust
When someone walks into a medical clinic in Haiti, the first thing they are going to notice is whether or not the building is clean, secure, and trustworthy. Buildings that have sagging foundations, collapsing walls, and sinking ceilings are less likely to inspire trust in the care they will receive.
When they see a building that is sturdy and strong, they will instantly have more faith in the care that they will receive. This encourages them to come to your clinic instead of holding off until the situation gets dire.
Buildings Should Add To The Appeal Of Communities
Building a medical clinic anywhere requires you to think about the aesthetic appeal of the building. Even a building that is supposed to be functional over beautiful still needs to have some basic design. When you design a medical clinic in Haiti, you need to have a design that works for the community. Thankfully, when you build with steel beams, they can be cut and shaped in different ways to fit the needs of that location.
When you use steel framing, you can design buildings that have open spaces, multiple stories, and unique elements that fit within the needs of a community. Buildings can have up to six stories using lightweight steel or can be taller than that by using concrete or I-beam frames.
There are even solar and water purification options available for medical clinics in Haiti, making it a great option for future-proofing buildings.
Longevity To Strengthen Communities
When you build a medical clinic, it needs to be something that people know they can rely on and trust when they are in need. This means that there needs to be sturdy construction and good quality building materials. If you want to build a medical clinic in Haiti, you want it to become a building people trust for generations, something they can depend on – something with longevity.
Our buildings are beautiful and strong, quickly becoming those locations in communities where people know they can go when they have struggles. They see generations of families treated for injuries and illnesses. In many places, they will provide jobs and care that help the community to prosper.
Build A Medical Clinic That Will Be There
Most importantly, buildings that appear sturdy and well-built from the outside will encourage trust that they will be there when the weather gets bad and people need medical attention. Historically, medical clinics tend to shut down when there is bad weather because they cannot withstand the wind and rain. With steel framing, this isn’t so. Our buildings last a long time (over 70 years) because they are flood and earthquake resistant, and are fire tested to 1,500 degrees centigrade.
