ESTERO, Fla. (Dec. 1, 2015) – Suffolk Construction recently completed its first Trades Partnership Series in Miami. The program provided a week-long training program to 15 trade partner firms. The classes, which covered everything from lean construction principles to risk management, were taught by Suffolk executives and local community leaders. The program concluded with a graduation ceremony attended by all of the instructors and trade partner firms.
“As we conclude our first Trades Partnership Series in Miami, Suffolk Construction is thrilled about the support from its partners, such as The Beacon Council and Miami-Dade County Small Business Development Division,” said Suffolk Construction’s Director of Diversity Brian McPherson. “Our common goal was to inform and empower our local trade partners, and this series undoubtedly supported this mission.”
The Trades Partnership Series assists small, local, disadvantaged, minority, and women-owned trade partner firms in fostering long-term relationships with Suffolk. As a result of a successful program in Boston, Suffolk rolled out the series in Miami for the first time in November.
