After the earthquake of January 12th 2010 in Port Au Prince Haiti, AIDG, in cooperation with the Multidisciplinary Center For Earthquake Engineering out of the University of Buffalo and KPFF consulting Engineers, began inspecting 1500 structures for damage. What those teams saw were the same construction mistakes happening over and over again. The source of those mistakes was an unskilled workforce that learns through apprenticeship basic building practices that are not appropriate for construction in earthquake zones. Based on experience of seeing things done wrong working with good foreman but unskilled workers AIDG realized that a mass training curriculum for day laborers was needed to fix the knowledge gap. We began training 10,000 masons in confined masonry to fill this gap.
