The leaders in the sustainability field who comprise our chapter continue to excite and amaze us with the new strides they make in their work. Their ingenuity and tireless commitment to sustainability are what make our chapter such a wonderful community of professionals. Suffolk Construction is transforming the construction industry by building smart.
Over the last few years they have transformed themselves from a successful building construction management firm into an innovative, forward-thinking organization that has big ambitions—to change the construction industry as we know it. In fact, Suffolk’s vision is to transform the construction experience by building smart. To achieve this ambitious goal, they are committed to three corporate strategies: 1) Advance the power of innovation to provide answers; 2) Empower their people to create high-performing teams; and 3) Engage in the community to make a difference. At Suffolk they also understand that there are misconceptions about “being green”. Green is not just recycling, it’s not just climate change, and it’s not just LEED building. These are all components of sustainability, but they don’t tell the whole story. Ideally, sustainability is the convergence of consumer, business and environmental value.
We are also happy to have Suffolk as a Gold Sponsor for our Green Building Showcase and Awards next week!
