Featured Testimonial - The Procaccianti Group
My name is Steve Perfetto and I am senior construction executive for The Procaccianti Group (TPG). TPG owns many high end hotel chains and commercial properties in Rhode Island and surrounding region. I met Jhonny when he competed and won the contract for renovating the Holiday Inn, South Kingston, Rhode Island project. I was impressed with his ability to plan, coordinate and execute his workforce, subcontractors and vendors to deliver a completed job. The workmanship was excellent and problem solving was seamless with no impact on the operations of the hotel, which remained in business during the renovations. Since that project, Heroica Construction has completed two other major renovations for TPG. They include the Renovation of the Bar and Lounge at the Hilton Providence, and General Repairs to the Kitchen at the Hilton Wyndham Gardens.
I was pleased with Heroica involvement to help TPG coordinate our subs and vendors that were not part of their contract. These vendors mainly provided services to the bar (soda lines, beer lines, bar sinks and equipment, and millwork) as well to other areas of the project. Heroica worked very closely with the interior designer to resolve and coordinate design issue. They provided craftsman to hang a number of artwork, memorabilia, and pictures that were not specified on the drawings. Their willingness to help with the aforementioned items resulted in a spectacular finish, which has been well received by the hotel management staff and general public.
Renovation of the Bar, Lounge, Dining Room and Public Restrooms, Holiday Inn, Kingston, Rhode Island
Renovation of the Bar, Lounge, Dining Room and Public Restrooms, Holiday Inn, Kingston, Rhode Island – The scope of work for this transformative project consisted of selective demolition, concrete and saw cutting, rough and finish carpentry, doors and hardware, metal stud and drywall walls, ceilings and soffits, acoustical tile ceilings, millwork, painting, carpet and ceramic tile flooring, wall covering, toilet partitions, bathroom accessories, plumbing, electrical, and furniture fixtures and equipment. I was satisfied with the manner in which the project was executed and subsequently closed out with final inspections and a certificate of occupancy.
Hilton Wyndham Gardens Kitchen Renovation, India Point, Providence Rhode Island
This project although small in size was just as important to TPG to service the hotel’s patrons in a manner we are accustomed to providing. This contract involved the installation of new FRP wall panels, patching and installing new ceramic wall tiles, and epoxy painting the kitchen floor. Heroica was chosen for this project based on their available workforce and the outstanding effort they made and high quality workmanship they provided on the Holiday Inn. I was happy to negotiate this contract to the benefit of TPG and Heroica. As a result they finished the project on time and on budget.
Renovation of the Sports Bar, Lounge and Dining Room, Hilton Providence, Providence Rhode Island
The scope of work for this high profile project in the center of the downtown commercial district included selective demolition of the old bar and porcelain flooring, concrete saw cutting, rough and finish carpentry, a tongue and groove wood flooring product install on the ceiling over the new bar, acoustical tile ceilings, painting, wall covering, new 32”x32” porcelain floor tiles and 6”x6” quarry tiles, relocating sprinkler head, reconfiguring the plumbing and bar equipment to fit the new layout, and new wiring for power, networking, Internet, and specialized lighting fixtures at the bar, lounge and dining areas. I was pleased with Heroica involvement to help TPG coordinate our subs and vendors that were not part of their contract. These vendors mainly provided services to the bar (soda lines, beer lines, bar sinks and equipment, and millwork) as well to other areas of the project. Heroica worked very closely with the interior designer to resolve and coordinate design issue. They provided craftsman to hang a number of artwork, memorabilia, and pictures that were not specified on the drawings.

I want to let you and my safety manager, Dennis Mullen, know how much I and other members of the Gilbane Citizens Refresh Project appreciate Heroica Construction’s commitment to safety, not only on the job site but also on the travel home from 2nd shift tonight. I was traveling on 95 south after 1 am when your foreman Joshua called me to alert me to the dangerous road condition on 95 south just after 495 into Providence. The road had iced up and cars littered the side of the highway. Barney Kavanagh (Gilbane Superintendent) also alerted me just after Joshua. It is good to know that Heroica’s culture of caring is in alignment with Gilbane’s in that it extend beyond the job site. I was able to alert Jason Agresti (Gilbane Superintendent) and we both slowed down as other cars flew by us only to come to a quick slow down where a tractor trailer, cars and emergency vehicles were scattered. Your workers have been great to work with and I was not surprised your men cared enough to call me. It was a crazy ride home but was able to get home a little slower but safely. Look forward to finishing this project strong and safe and work with your crew again. Now I can see why Dave Bird wanted your company to be part of project team.

We wanted to take this time to thank you for the excellent work that Heroica Construction did at both the University of Rhode Island, Dorm Renovation Project and the Rhode Island College, Fogarty Science Lab Project. Your firm was professional and reliable, two qualities that are key to working in a fast paced, high stress environment. In addition, the quality of work that Heroica Construction performed was excellent and job site cleanliness was of the highest caliber. Please feel free to use us as a reference anytime.

It is my pleasure to recommend the services of Heroica Construction to you. During the past eight years, our facilities maintenance team has worked directly with Jhonny Leyva, President of Heroica Construction on numerous projects. The company offers top-notch quality, service and rates. Across the board, we are always pleased with their work. One project in particular illustrates their attention to detail and concern for quality. For one of our larger buildings, Heroica Construction team completed the exterior siding repair, painting, and cleanup of a 92,000 square foot, three story, public building. With over 400 internal staff members working in this building we received no calls of concern or complaints on the quality, safety, and courteousness of the Heroica Construction team members. Please consider Heroica Construction as a very competitive and efficient contractor for any upcoming project. I recommend them and look forward to working with them again.
