Suffolk Construction Company provides construction services from top to bottom. The company kicks off the building process with preconstruction services and follows through with design/build, general contracting, and construction management. The firm builds for both the public and private sectors including military, automotive, education, health care, retail, and assisted living clients across the US. The firm is owned by president and CEO John Fish, whose family has been in construction for four generations. Suffolk was founded in 1982 and operates in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, and West Coast regions.
Already a successful builder in New England, Suffolk Construction is working to expand nationally. It has made several acquisitions in order to grow its reach. Suffolk first acquired William A. Berry & Son, another Massachusetts-based builder in 2009. The deal created Suffolk's Berry Division, which specializes in health care and biomedical projects.
Suffolk Construction also acquired The Dietze Construction Group based in Ashburn, Virginia, in 2010. The deal strengthened Suffolk's position in the Mid-Atlantic region and expanded its ability to serve the government, health care, education, science/technology, and commercial sectors. In order t to boost its presence in the West, Suffolk acquired Southern California-based ROEL Construction in 2011.
Geographic diversity isn't Suffolk Construction's only strategy. In 2010 the company expanded its presence in the growing health care sector by launching National Healthcare Group, which specializes in building health care projects around the country.
In addition to its growing health care division, Suffolk also relies on winning work from federal and local governments. The firm has built for the Army Corps of Engineers, the US Marine Corps, and US Navy.
Suffolk's array of projects in a variety of sectors are designed to keep the company thriving even in challenging times. – less
