Abstract

The Amoveo Group in collaboration with Mission TwentyFive35 focuses on the northern region of the Dominican Republic, “El Cibao”, to share the Gospel and plant churches by implementing a sustainable solution that addresses the community’s four needs. Mission TwentyFive35 identifies the lack of clean water, food sustainability shortcomings, limited access to primary healthcare and education, and the absence of technical and vocational job training as the primary contributors to these extremely impoverished communities.

This project provides structural calculations for a library within Mission TwentyFive35’s vocational campus near Santiago, Dominican Republic. In partnership with a nonprofit humanitarian organization called Journeyman International, an architectural engineering and construction management student pair with an architect to design and construct a safe, functional, and economical building to fulfill the client’s needs. This project explores the social responsibility of engineers to give back to the global community and how traveling further cultivates that idea.
