Haiti Earthquake Damage Safety Assessment
Following the devastating magnitude 7.0 earthquake in February 2010, Roi went to Haiti with a team of architects and engineers spending two weeks providing rapid building damage assessments for local hospital, clinic, school, commercial, and residential buildings. Potential safe refuge evacuation shelters were also identified. Worked in collaboration with the Haitian Municipal of Civil Defense and local government in providing digital logs and records of assessments.
