RCC Moves Back Into Headquarters Following November Fire

DEERFIELD BEACH, FL– MAY 3, 2005– Working from a make-shift office for the past five months, some 80 staffers at RCC Associates returned home this week following months of rehabilitation of the company’s fire-damaged headquarters in Deerfield Beach.

In an early a.m. ceremony, RCC President and CEO Beverly Raphael thanked employees for their patience and support following the November fire that gutted the one-story RCC office.

As a symbolic return home and homage to her late husband, Richard Raphael, founder of the well-known buildout construction firm, Ms. Raphael released a cage of butterflies prior to a ribbon cutting.

“It’s good to be home, so let’s get to work,” she told the gathering.

In spite of the havoc created by the fire and temporary relocation, RCC is on track to meet or best a record year in 2004, when the company reported earnings in excess of $68 million. The company has gained a national reputation for its niche in interior buildout construction for high-end retailers and restaurants.

RCC’s new brand assignments in the retail sector included Polo/Ralph Lauren, Louis Vuitton, Celine, Anthropologie, Kenneth Cole, Tumi, Abercrombie & Fitch, St. John Knits, Kiehls, Hollister and Ruehle. In 2004, nationally known restaurants such as Capital Grille, Chili’s, Emeril’s and Maggiano’s Little Italy became new RCC restaurants, while the company continued to grow its relationship with the Cheesecake Factory in building another six locations.
