Haitian Building Code In English

Haitian Building Code In English

RE: Haitian Building Code In English

Google translate does a fairly good job for French. Random sample below:

Quote (CNBH)

Les murs de cisaillement doivent être continus sur toute la hauteur du bâtiment, soit de la fondation à la partie basse de la toiture, et ne doivent comporter aucune ouverture ou pénétration (figure 1.8.1).

Quote (Google)

Shear walls must be continuous over the entire height of the building, from the foundation to the lower part of the roof, and must have no openings or penetrations (Figure 1.8.1).
