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 Leyva when he competed for and won the renovation contract for the Holiday Inn, South Kingstown. I was impressed by his ability to plan, coordinate, execute, and deliver the project through the management of his workforce, subcontractors, and vendors. Excellent workmanship and seamless problem solving prevented against any impact on the operations of the hotel, which remained in business during the renovation.
Since the successful completion of that project, Heroica Construction has finished two other major projects for TPG: the renovation of the bar & lounge at the Hilton Providence and general kitchen repairs at the Hilton Wyndham Gardens. I am pleased with the involvement Heroica had in helping TPG coordinate subs and vendors that were not a part of their contract. These vendors mainly provided services to the bar (soda and beer lines, bar sinks and equipment, millwork) and other areas of the project. The Heroica Construction team worked closely with the interior designer to coordinate and resolve design issues. They also provided craftsmen to hang 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
The scope of work for this transformative project consisted of renovations to some of the most coveted, high-traffic locations within the hotel such as the lobby, restaurant, and bar. Services provided included selective demolition, concrete cutting, rough and finish carpentry, drywall, ceilings, millwork, painting, flooring, plumbing, electrical, and more. Additional interior fit-out work was also completed for the restrooms, front desk, office, and kitchen. 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
Although small in size, this project was just as important to TPG in order to service the hotel’s patrons to the standard we are accustomed to providing. Heroica Construction was chosen for this project based on the outstanding effort and high quality workmanship they provided on the Holiday Inn project. The scope of work for this contract involved the installation of new FRP wall panels, patching and installing new ceramic wall tiles, and epoxy painting the kitchen floor. I was happy to negotiate this contract to the benefit of TPG and Heroica, and even happier to say this project was completed on time and on budget.
Renovation of the Sports Bar, Lounge and Dining Room, Hilton Providence, Providence Rhode Island
Set in the center of the downtown commercial district, this high profile project required the utmost care to ensure the restaurant remained in service during the renovation. Heroica Construction provided services including selective demolition, concrete saw cutting, rough & finish carpentry, acoustical tile ceilings, painting, wall covering, wiring, and the reconfiguration of plumbing and bar equipment to accommodate the new layout. Additionally, they installed a tongue and groove wood product on the ceiling over the updated bar, new porcelain and quarry floor tiles, and specialized lighting fixtures across the bar, lounge, and dining areas.

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.

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.
