Journeyman International (JI) is a non-profit organization that pairs emerging professionals in the architectural, structural engineering, and construction management industries with humanitarian projects in underdeveloped countries overseeing the design and construction process. The Mòn Briyè Primary School is a JI project led and funded by The 610 Project, an Alabama-based non-profit organization dedicated to the sustainable success of developing Haitian communities through education. This primary school will be located in Mornes Brieux, Haiti and consists of three buildings: one classroom building for first to fourth grade, one classroom building for fifth to eighth grades, and one building for administration. The Mòn Briyè Primary School will be the first in the area to provide education and opportunity for over two hundred and fifty students as well as a guest house for teachers and visitors supporting the school. The project team consists of two architectural engineering students, an architecture graduate student and a construction management student. The design will be implemented by Third Lens, a construction management and design organization that provides services to front-line ministries in need of new facilities in order to spread the love of God. This report, created by the architectural engineering students, includes the background, research, challenges, significant impacts, structural design drawings and calculations for this project.
