The Villages of Indigo Green on St. Maarten are located in one of the most desirable destinations of the Caribbean. Near the southeast ocean coast of the island, Indigo Bay is undergoing a large renovation with this 150 acre exclusive, private community. This community will have access to restaurants, hotels, shops, beaches and immaculate views.
Helix® Micro-Rebar™ concrete reinforcement was as primary reinforcement for slabs and stairs and in a hybrid design methodology for the walls. This provided the customer with a stronger more durable home, which can now act as a safe house in times of hurricanes or tropical storms.
