Steel Building in Port-au-Prince, Haiti

This 100’ x 100’ x 12’ Nucor metal building was purchased through Metal Building Outlet in 2010. It was intended as a large school and church in Haiti’s largest city, Port-au-Prince.  Port-au-Prince is located about two miles from Delmas, five miles from Petionville and six miles from Carrefour.

This structure was designed with a 145 mph wind speed rating. The sturdiness and durability of steel buildings is paramount in Haiti, particularly in the wake of a massive earthquake that ravaged the island and damaged numerous structures in January, 2010. Metal buildings are also favored by Haiti residents and businesses because they help control moisture and condensation on the island known for its lengthy wet season that runs from March through November.
