Gymnasium Vincent

After the Haiti earthquake struck Port-au-Prince in January 2010, the damaged Gymnasium Vincent was thoroughly assessed and permanently repaired. Keast & Hood played a major role in the rehabilitation of the multi-purpose arena/gymnasium, which reopened in May 2012.

Located in the Champs de Mars area of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Gymnasium Vincent sustained damage as a result of the January 2010 earthquake. The existing multi-purpose building structure consists of a reinforced concrete frame with masonry infill panels. Long-span steel trusses carry the existing metal deck roof system and are supported on the perimeter concrete frames.

Keast & Hood performed a structural investigation and analysis of the damage sustained by the structure as a result of the earthquake. A comprehensive condition assessment and summary design recommended permanent repairs and rehabilitation of the affected building elements to meet seismic design standards. Following this study, Keast & Hood was engaged to provide complete design services to repair the damage caused by the earthquake, and to retrofit and upgrade the existing structure to resist future seismic loads.
