About the Project
Welcome to the RUBBLE-HOUSE Research Project, a joint research effort sponsored by SPSU and Conscience International, Inc.
Conscience International has built more than 30 RUBBLE-HOUSEs in Haiti and plans to increase the number to 1000. SPSU faculty & students, with their engineering expertise, volunteered to evaluate the performance of RUBBLE-HOUSEs built with current construction techniques and make recommendations to improve the seismic resistance without much increase in cost of construction.
