After hurricanes crisscrossed Florida in 2004 and 2005, Peter Fedele, who has spent his career in the construction business, researched which types of buildings fared best during storms. The answer kept coming up domes, which led to ABC Domes, a disaster recovery company based in Lakeland. The company rents out space in domes to financial institutions and document-storage companies. Customers include Bank of America, BB&T and Certified Records Management. The Lakeland site — the company has a dome in Texas, too — employs 35 and has four domes, with plans for another next year. CEO Fedele says the domes can withstand winds of up to 300 mph. “They’re basically disaster-proof,” he says.
