Yves François

YCF Group S.A.

the Ti/YCF team reviewing progress zt the St. Mattieu School in Legoane, Haiti.

YCF Group S.A a été fondé par François-Yves, un Haïtiano-Américain avec un haut profil de 25 ans de carrière dans l’architecture et la gestion de construction pour des sociétés comme PepsiCo, Philip Morris et Cablevision.

Avec des années de réussite professionnelle derrière lui, en 2004, il a commencé à concentrer son énergie sur Haïti et en 2006, il a pris des mesures pour établir une firme d’architecture et de construction à Port-au-Prince. Au début de 2009, il a pris la décision audacieuse de venir s’installer en Haïti pour voir s’il pouvait «faire une différence» dans la création d’un environnement plus sûr du bâtiment.

Les projets du Groupe YCF comprennent: aménagement du site de grande taille et les systèmes de drainage, les bâtiments commerciaux, routes, eau et eaux usées, centrales électriques et de distribution, la santé et des hôpitaux et des infrastructures. Ce fut l’entreprise de construction choisie pour construire le premier bâtiment scolaire permanent post-séisme en Haïti. L’école est située dans un village isolé dans Léogâne.

Alors qu’YCF Group continuera à travailler pour de nombreux clients privés et des ONGs, l’entrepreneur explique la difficulté avec les entreprises haïtiennes de sécuriser les contrats locaux attribués par des entreprises américaines financées. “Si l’offre est émise aux États-Unis, vous devez avoir un permis de construction américaine”. Yves a récemment réalisé avec succès la présente à travers une joint-venture avec la société américaine, Technologists Inc.

Yves était âgé de six ans seulement lorsque ses parents ont quitté Haïti pour une nouvelle vie à New York. Maintenant âgé de 48 ans, il décrit son retour comme «quelque chose qui était tout simplement dans son sang pour le pousser à retourner à la maison, Haïti». Cette impressionnante «vocation» a occasionné la création de 120 emplois en Haïti.

 

About YCF Haiti

The vision of YCF Haiti is to build local capacity and raise design and construction standards while contributing to the post-earthquake recovery effort by extensive training and technical assistance to local employees and Haitian subcontractors

 

Yves François, Founder of YCF Group, S.A.

Yves discusses the St. Mattieu School project with workers

YCF Group, S.A. was founded by Yves François, a Haitian- American, who was born in Haiti but spent most of his childhood in Brooklyn, NY. In 1986, he earned an architecture degree from the New York Institute of Technology. For 10 years he was manager of construction and design at Pepsico. He later held similar positions at Philip Morris and Cablevision.

In 2004, Mr. François began focusing his energy on Haiti, and in 2006 took steps to establish an architecture and construction firm in Port-au-Prince. In early 2009, he made the bold decision to fully relocate to Haiti to see if he could “make a difference” in creating a safer building environment.

In the wake of the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Mr. François continues his operations with a staff of 100 people, while also working as a consultant for Architecture for Humanity, and as an advocate for “building back better” with innovative earthquake-resistant design solutions in Haiti.
