Roxbury, MA – Suffolk recently hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a new 38,000sf, three-story addition to its headquarters in Roxbury. The new space will foster collaboration and innovation among Suffolk employees that will disrupt the industry. In lieu of a traditional ribbon-cutting ceremony with an actual ribbon and scissors, the event featured interactive, digital technologies that imitated the ribbon-cutting ritual.

Designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects, the new office space includes collaborative work spaces, an auditorium, conference rooms, a café with outdoor seating, an expanded gym with state-of-the-art equipment, a fitness studio, and a second-floor outdoor terrace. The new space is part of Suffolk’s headquarters expansion project, which will also feature a complete interior renovation of its original office building and the launch of a Smart Lab, a collaborative environment that will be used to identify, test, and scale new technologies intended to transform the construction experience and revolutionize the industry.

Guests attending the event had an opportunity to demo virtual reality technology and hear about Suffolk’s build smart approach and the innovative technologies and processes used to manage construction projects. The speaking program featured Suffolk chairman and CEO John Fish, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, Suffolk Northeast president and general manager Angus Leary, and Suffolk Chief innovation officer Chris Mayer.

Dignitaries attending the event included Massachusetts Housing and Economic Development Secretary Jay Ash, Massachusetts State Senator Linda Dorcena Forry, Massachusetts State Representative Nick Collins, Boston Police Commissioner William Evans, Suffolk County Sheriff Steven Tompkins, Boston Inspectional Services Commissioner William Christopher Jr., Boston City Councilor Annissa Essaibi George, Boston City Councilor Frank Baker, Elkus Manfredi Architects founding principal David Manfredi, Elkus Manfredi Architects principal Elizabeth Lowrey, and Brian Doherty, general agent-secretary treasurer, Building and Construction Trades Council of the Metropolitan District.
