Procacci Development Corp. to Build Hurricane-Resistant, Leed-Certified Citizenship & Immigration Services Facility Near Tampa, FL Airport

 BOCA RATON, FL (May 16, 2011) – Procacci Development Corporation, the leader in the design and creation of buildings constructed to resist hurricane-force winds and maximize energy efficiency, broke ground today on a new Tampa facility for the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) that has been designed to deliver both.

 The building, located on 6.5 acres just north of the Tampa International Airport at 5629 Hoover Blvd., is the latest to incorporate the developer’s “Built Procacci Strong” construction concepts. These leading-edge facilities incorporate hurricane-resistant attributes to protect tenants from water and wind damage in excess of the Florida Building Code.

 In the event of a major storm, the building and its infrastructure are protected from damage and operations can continue with a diesel back-up generator. By incorporating the design elements necessary to achieve LEED Silver Certification, the General Services Administration (GSA) will realize reductions in electrical consumption and environmental impacts while affording the occupants a safer, healthier workplace.
