Salva Tu Casa is a collaborative platform that brings together architects and structural engineers to help those citizens in need

Due to the seriousness of the situation in Mexico City after Tuesday’s earthquake, Salva Tu Casa (Save Your House) has offered its services for free to those affected.

This is a collaborative platform that brings together architects and structural engineers to help those citizens in need, whose buildings may be damaged and need expert advice on whether their building is safe or not.

The project’s objective is to centralize the information of affected buildings and provide it to the government of Mexico so that they can systematically and efficiently visit damaged buildings as soon as possible.

It should be noted that for security reasons, information from those seeking to use the free service will first be validated through a personal call to schedule a property review appointment.

This collaborative service is completely free. No donations or gifts will be accepted.

Those wanting to use the service must fill out a short form to receive a decision about whether they are a  candidate, which will also act as a funnel to channel the corresponding authorities to the buildings where they are needed.

Architects and engineers wanting to get involved in this service should visit the website, or click here.
