Going the Extra Protection Mile at Procacci Development’s BB & T Bank Building

At Procacci Development Corporation, one of South Florida’s leading development, construction and management companies, they take hurricane protection seriously.  In fact, the company has developed a reputation for constructing and retrofitting Class A commercial office buildings that are so strong, they meet the requirements of Public Shelters and enable tenants to continue business immediately following a hurricane.  Another plus:  Procacci is able to obtain high quality insurance with reduced deductibles – a challenge faced by many property owners throughout Florida – savings which they are able to pass onto their tenants.

The upcoming complete retrofit of the windows at the BB & T Bank Building in Doral, FL purchased by a Procacci affiliate last year is just one of many examples of Procacci’s efforts of ensuring that its buildings have a well-protected façade, critical to withstanding hurricane-force winds and flying debris.  Working in tandem with GCI Consultants, LLC, Procacci will replace all windows in the existing 4 story, 35,000 square foot structure.  The new windows are designed to withstand winds up to 176 miles per hour of a Category 5 hurricane and are made with large missile impact glass.  GCI helped assess the building façade on the 13-year old building, developed plans and specifications, consulted on the glazing selection and conducted water infiltration tests.

Procacci’s “Built Procacci Strong” initiative meets or exceeds the rigorous standards of the Zurich insurance company’s Highly Protected Risk (HPR) program.  Procacci, Zurich and GCI have collaborated on many projects, which have validated the fact that building envelope protection is good business for everyone involved.

“Tenants of our buildings sometimes have no idea about the effort and cost involved in our designing and constructing work environments that are safe and that will withstand Category 5 storms, but it’s rewarding for us to make such an important contribution,” says Philip J. Procacci, Chief Executive Officer of Procacci Development Corporation in Baca Raton, FL.
