Leading Florida construction company helps property management companies stay prepared

BOCA RATON, Fla. – Venture Construction Group of Florida (VCGFL) is excited to integrate MetLoop and offer advanced technology to property owners, property managers, and homeowners associations throughout Florida.  MetLoop brings a new level of accuracy from the military to the civilian market offering an unprecedented approach to weather forecasting and storm preparedness. MetLoop processes cutting-edge forensic weather data through highly-sophisticated software, the same software which has been used to forecast and predict weather for top-secret missions, NASA, and worldwide use by U.S. Air Force meteorologists.

“We’re excited to provide the most advanced technology available to our customers. It’s imperative to stay innovative in the construction and restoration industry to protect property owners.  With the heavy storms we get in Florida, this software is a game-changer, and could most definitely be a lifesaver,” says Stephen Shanton, CEO of Venture Construction Group of Florida. 

This military-proven software enables companies like Venture Construction Group of Florida to utilize the latest weather forecasting technologies to provide advanced preparedness and assistance to property owners, before, during, and after severe weather events. MetLoop alerts are 95%+ accurate, while other weather-forecasting companies are closer to 70% accurate. According to the MetLoop team, other companies get their information from the National Weather Service, which is set up to provide broad, regional forecasts. In contrast, MetLoop takes in all the raw weather data and processes it through their proprietary military grade platform.

Venture Construction Group of Florida launched their new Florida Storm Property Preparedness (FSPP) program to property management companies, commercial property owners, and homeowners’ associations throughout central and south Florida. The FSPP program will provide advanced warning of storms and routine monitoring via satellite with the most cutting edge MetLoop weather forensics technology. Property owners are able to monitor multiple properties, before, during, and after a storm, from anywhere in the world, via a personal member dashboard. Venture Construction Group FSPP crews conduct property monitoring services, free inspections, 24/7 emergency services, and documentation for property managers who are out of state. The Venture Construction Group of Florida FSPP service provides advanced storm alerts via text and email, and independent 3rd party verification including weather reports and documentation of pre-existing property conditions. 

“We’ve put the power of the world’s most advanced weather technology in the hands of construction companies, manufacturers and distributors,” says Jay Southerland, CEO of MetLoop. “MetLoop’s ability to deliver the most accurate weather support possible is a combination of superior technology and weather-forecasting experts.”

According to MetLoop, their state-of-the-art NOAA Port receiver provides immediate access via direct satellite download to the latest environmental data available from the United States’ National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). This is the same radar and satellite imagery, raw atmospheric model data, and other alpha-numeric information used by the National Weather Service. However, the MetLoop software combined with expert meteorologists provides site-specific operational forecasting not found in any industry outside of military operations.   

“Our operational experience provides the highest degrees of accuracy from the first alert to the time of impact.” says Rocco Calaci, MetLoop’s Chief Meteorologist. “In the military, with lives and equipment at stake on the move or in battle, military forecasters have to be accurate. We’ve now brought this technology to the civilian market and it’s very useful for the construction and restoration industry,”

Calaci served for 20 years as Senior Meteorologist for the U.S. Air Force, and has over 40 years of experience in weather forecasting.
