Good Rest Orphanage, located in Croix Des Bouquets, Haiti, has been supported by Children’s Heritage Foundation (CHF) for over 15 years and was in need of basic site plans and a flatwork design. Proper in field data was collected on a trip to Haiti during the summer of 2019. This material was then assembled in AutoCAD to create six pages of detailed drawings. A flatwork, or sidewalk system was then designed in AutoCAD based off the assembled model. Next an estimate for the cost to construct the sidewalks was developed and refined in excel. Various obstacles were overcome in the process of developing these drawings and estimate from a lack of proper surveying equipment to missing in-field information. The estimate will provide CHF with the necessary information to bid and install a proper flatwork system at Good Rest Orphanage which will increase its resident’s quality of life. These drawings will now be used in all reconstruction and new construction efforts for the future of Good Rest Orphanage.
