BUILDING A STORMPROOF
On September 1, 2019, one of the most powerful storms on record hit The Bahamas. By the end of the storm, 74 people had died and 70,000 were left homeless, with a total cost of over $3.4 Billion.
This level of destruction was beforehand unimaginable.
While the resilience of the Bahamian people was on full display, and aid arrived, there remains the lingering thought - 'this will not be the last storm to hit.'
TRADITIONAL CONSTRUCTION FAILED
"In a death match between a
2 X 4 and a hurricane, who wins?
Hint: Not the piece of wood."
Traditional methods of construction, using wood, nails, and standard building materials, are not up to the task of protecting people from extreme weather events.
What if there was a way to build homes that could withstand the forces of nature and offer a safe haven from storms like Dorian?
What if building now meant not having to rebuild later?
PETROS BUILDERS OFFERS THE ANSWER
Petros Builders, a building partner of 3Space Makers, is launching our hurricane resistant homes throughout the Caribbean. The first Caribbean project is rebuilding The Bahamas following Hurricane Dorian.
Our materials and methods produce a safe and beautiful home that is superior to traditional methods in these ways:
PRECISION: Every house is built exactly to the construction plan with no variance.
DURABILITY: The design and materials assure the homeowner that the house will withstand storms per our specifications.
REPEATABILITY: The form system and building process insures that each home will conform to design standards.
SPEED: Our process can produce homes at an extremely high rate, while maintaining the highest quality standards.
Our objective is for families to never again face the destruction of their homes due to a storm.
THE FIRST CARIBBEAN REBUILDING PROJECT
We have partnered with Caribbean Israel Finance to make the Island Nation hurricane resilient, while also being affordable and beautiful.
Phase 1 is to build 2,000 hurricane resistant homes on Grand Bahama.
Following the first phase, we will build another 4,000 homes on the Abaco Islands as Phase 2.
Helping to rebuild The Bahamas involves both building homes and building lives. Petros Builders is committed to employing and training teams to build the homes that neighbors will live in. Economic stability comes from a safe and secure family, in a quality home coupled with job opportunities.
