Hurricane season is here and along with preparing for the season at home, it is important for business owners to prepare as well! Todd Whalen, President of Eclipse Building Corp., visited That Business Show with Jamie Meloni on June 14th to discuss tips for hurricane season preparations and the development of his business in Tampa.
During the hurricane season, business owners must remind themselves that during a storm banks may not reopen for weeks. Small business owners must have financial capacities in place to be able to support themselves during that time. Also, building regulations such as impact windows ensure the safety of employees in the event of a hurricane.
When dealing with flooding, it is important to find out what levels of risk your business is located in. Business owners should communicate with insurance companies and educate themselves on the financial implications of flooding. Storm surges in Tampa may reach heights of 15-20 feet, in the event of such a storm it is important to back up storage and plan for recovery after the storm.
At Eclipse Building Corp, service and maintenance is a critical part of what they do. After working on any project, whether is it residential or commercial, Eclipse offers a two-year warranty which doubles what most construction management and general contracting firms offer. After ten months, Eclipse will return to repair, replace and maintain features such as asphalt, landscaping, outlets, lighting, painting and more.
Eclipse specializes in commercial and ultra-luxury residential projects. Currently, the firm is working on restaurant projects as well as projects in Harbor Island, Davis Island and Westley Chapel. Eclipse also specializes in commercial and retrofit interiors across a wide sector.
Todd Whalen founded Eclipse Building Corp back in 2014 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. On a recent visit to Tampa, Todd fell in love with the vibrancy of the city. He recognized the development and potential growth of this city was exactly where his firm needed to be. He is fully committed to Tampa and is excited to build new relationships, learn the new market and work on developing his business.
