CALGARY – Architecture student Michael Malone, from Tulsa, returned this weekend from a project trip to Grand-Goâve, Haiti after making an impact on the lives of children and families through his technical skills. Malone was part of a team of architects and engineers from across North America who volunteered their time with Engineering Ministries International Canada to provide master planning and design for a church, conference center, school and agricultural project for Haiti ARISE.
This was eMi Canada’s third project trip to serve Haiti ARISE, and the volunteers on this project team took an existing schematic design of the church, conference center and K-12 school to a detailed design level, including infrastructure and construction drawings. Malone worked with the senior architects and engineers and assisted with the design, finalized drawings and produce renderings.
While on site, the team was also able to review and provide feedback on the construction progress for the technical school and the children’s village which eMi Canada had previously designed.
At the end of the week, the team presented a master plan and building design proposal to Haiti ARISE leadership.
For Malone, the trip to Haiti is part of a larger experience with Engineering Ministries International.
Malone is currently interning with eMi Canada in Calgary, where he will finish up design work for the Haiti ARISE project as the team continues to work on more detailed elements of the design. Engineering Ministries International will provide Haiti ARISE with a final report and construction details in the coming months.
