Procacci Development Corporation, a full service real estate developer based in Boca Raton, has achieved Zurich Insurance HPR (Highly Protected Risk) certification. As a leader in disaster recovery and business continuity solutions, Procacci earned this certification by exceeding standards created to allow both structures and businesses the ability to weather significant storm events and sustain stability.
Zurich, a global property and casualty insurance provider, developed HPR standards to serve as a blueprint to help customers mitigate losses due to hurricanes and windstorms. For Phil Procacci, CEO of Procacci Development Corporation, just building to hurricane safety standards was not enough. In accordance with their “Built Procacci Strong” initiative, Procacci has taken hurricane protection to a new level.
“Zurich’s cost-effective and innovative ideas enabled us to construct buildings to withstand Category 5 level storms and ensured that our tenants would be able to be open for business the day after a major storm,” Procacci said. “Zurich showed us how to engineer less costly alternatives to deliver superior construction. We continue to work with them to enhance our buildings.”
Zurich’s HPR standards guide the location, design, construction and protection of buildings and structures to help maintain building “envelope” integrity during hurricanes, keep water (due to wind-driven rain, rain accumulation, flood, or storm surges) out and help avoid potentially catastrophic foundation damage.
Procacci explained, “Our tenants’ safety, peace of mind and ability to avoid costly business interruptions were first and foremost in our minds when embarking on this new approach to construction.”
