The Peabody Orlando Expansion

Glazing Consultants International, LLC, was retained to provide building envelope consulting services for Peabody Orlando’s $450 million dollar expansion, which includes over 200,000 square-feet of meeting space, a 31-story tower with 750 new guest rooms and a new parking garage for 2,100 cars.

“This was an exciting project because GCI was able to work on the entire exterior utilizing our glazing, waterproofing and roofing specialists.  This is a prominent landmark in Orlando, and we are proud to have been a part of its growth.”

Paul Beers, CEO, Managing Member

Services:  GCI provided these services on behalf of the owner and worked with the construction team on the exterior glass curtain wall and windows, exterior walls, waterproofing features and roofs.  The assignment spanned several years.  GCI first worked on an initial survey to help determine how to integrate the existing structure with the new expansion and then worked with the Owner and Architect during design. Finally, GCI worked with the construction team to provide quality-control services, including review of drawings and submittals, site observations and field water infiltration tests.


Founded in 1988, GCI is a consulting firm that specializes in the exterior building envelope.  The GCI team includes experts in windows and doors, wall systems, roofing and waterproofing.  All consultants are highly-trained specialists who work closely with clients to protect their interests and help provide cost-effective results.  Our services include design assistance, investigation of building envelope problems, development of repair solutions, field water infiltration testing, quality control services, codes and standards consulting and expert witness and litigation assistance.
