About the project

This 20 story reclad was designed to withstand hurricane winds (equivalent to 260 mph) and missile impact. StoneLite® panels are Miami Dade NOA certified.

High strength StoneLite® Rosa Ghiandone granite panels were installed over failing 1″ mosaic tile without having to displace tenants during the renovation and because they were capable of meeting the 189 lb per sq. ft. wind load and hurricane large missile impact requirements.

Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico with deadly force.  Banco Popular had only a handful of panels that sustained cosmetic damage from flying debris.  ZERO panels were lost from the building due our superior engineering and rigorous testing.
