ESTERO, Fla. (Aug. 2, 2016) – Suffolk Construction’s Southeast Region recently received recognition by two leading business publications.

In June, Engineering News-Record (ENR) named Suffolk Southeast Contractor of the Year and Florida Trend named the company one of the Best Large Companies (250 or more employees) to work for in their July issue.

In 2015, Suffolk’s Southeast Region experienced and 83 percent increase in revenues during the previous year.

“We are extremely humbled for the recognition over the past year.  We have focused our efforts on employing the best professionals in our industry, as well as working with the highest quality trade partners. And this is truly a testament to the efforts and commitment of our people,” stated Suffolk’s President and General Manager Jeffrey Gouveia.

ENR noted that since the middle of 2015, Suffolk has begun work on such notable South Florida high-rise residential projects as the 52-story Ritz-Carlton Residences in Sunny Isles Beach; the 25-story Bristol Palm Beach in West Palm Beach; the 19-story, 75-unit Altaira in Bonita Springs; and Prive at Island Estates, a two-tower development in Aventura. Suffolk is also constructing the 7.5-acre Aventura Park Square mixed-use development.

On top of those project’s, ENR included what they said may be the region’s most transformative job—the mixed-use MiamiCentral Station complex that will anchor All Aboard Florida’s Brightline passenger rail system.

during the past year, Suffolk’s Southeast region’s Giving Circle program has raised $291,000 through payroll deductions and fundraising efforts. The company also regularly supports a variety of local and regional charities.

Florida Trend partners with the Best Companies Group to identify Florida’s best employers and takes into consideration company policies, practices and demographics as well as a company’s leadership and planning; corporate culture and communications; role satisfaction; work environment; relationships with supervisors; training and development; pay and benefits; and overall engagement.
