During these presentations, the representatives of the 4 finalists of the Competition: Aedifica Sud / Aedifica, ArchiVolt SA, Cecom Consultants and Raco-Deco answered questions from the jury made up of representatives of the Interministerial Committee for Regional Planning (CIAT), of the College National of Haitian engineers and architects (CNIAH) including President Alix Cinéas, and members and alternate members: Viviane St-Dic, Rose-May Guignard, Marie-Edith Hilaire, Rudolph Dupuy, Béatrice Brun, Marcia Codinachs, Yves Fritz Joseph, Fritz Duplan.

This presentation marks the end of a long process underlined the engineer Clément Bélizaire of the Housing and Public Buildings Unit (UCLBP) who announced that the winning project will be announced by President Moïse on 12 next January, on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the earthquake and caused the partial destruction of the National Palace. He recalled that the participating companies must be Haitian or a grouping of foreign firms whose leader must be necessarily a Haitian company according to the terms of reference https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-22306-haiti-flash-architecture-competition-for-the-reconstruction-of-the-national-palace.html

Regarding the cost of reconstruction, known only to the Jury, the only piece of information we have is that mentioned in 2017 by the architect Daniel Elie member of the Presidential Commission for the reconstruction of the National Palace, which according to a rough preliminary estimate, that the reconstruction of the National Palace could cost between 40 and 50 million US dollars https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-22818-haiti-flash-the-reconstruction-of-the-national-palace-could-cost-40-to-50-million-dollars.html . According to the Commission, the financing of the Palace, the financing of the works, would be distributed over 4 fiscal years to avoid too heavy a burden for the economy of Haiti. In addition, to reduce the burden on the public treasury, the Commission is planning to raise funds and solicit the participation of government revenue-generating institutions.

Recall that the Presidential Commission for the reconstruction of the National Palace, created in April 2017 is composed of 7 members : the engineer Clément Bélizaire (Coordinator), Patrick Durandisse, Patrick Delatour, the Architect Daniel Élie, Sabine Malbranche, Georges Michel and Yvan Pinchinat.
