Located in the northern region of the Dominican Republic, Rural Resilience is a clinic situated on a vocational campus in the rural town of Via Tapia. In collaboration with the Amoveo Group, Mission TwentyFive35 initiated the design and construction of this vocational campus to address the community’s limited access to healthcare and education, clean water, food, and the lack of vocational job training. Planned to be completed in several phases, this campus aims as a means to solve these shortcomings. This project provides the structural calculations and drawings for the clinic within Mission TwentyFive35’s campus. In coordination with the non profit humanitarian organization Journeyman International, an architecture student was paired with a construction management student and an architectural engineering student to design the building, which will be reviewed by an in-country engineer before construction may begin.
