EDUCATION CONSTRUCTION EXPERTISE: IT'S NO CLICHé TO SAY THAT SUCCESS COMES WITH DOING YOUR HOMEWORK.

At Suffolk, we recognize that working with education clients is a specialty in and of itself. In fact, we’ve divided our Education construction into three distinct areas of specialization: Higher Education, Public, and Independent. Our dedicated Suffolk teams understand that these Education clients are always part of a larger community and that their stakeholders are our clients as well. From the earliest stages of our education construction projects, we work hard to deliver the most accurate estimates, the most detailed, carefully developed schedules and a seamless construction plan that maximizes safety and minimizes disruptions on campus.


“Suffolk Construction has attended to details both small and large; they have advised the university on several value-engineering efforts, and made it all work. They have achieved the results that are important to us.”

SUFFOLK AWARDED REGIS COLLEGE PHASE ONE CAMPUS RENOVATION PROJECT

$24 million renovation to begin May 2014

BOSTON, MA, January 13, 2014 – Suffolk Construction, one of the most successful, privately held building contractors in the country, has been selected to perform preconstruction and construction management services for phase one of the Regis College campus-wide renovation in Weston, Massachusetts. The first phase consists of a $24 million renovation to upgrade dormitories and campus facilities and a quadrangle that will transform the pedestrian experience.

“Suffolk understands what Regis is all about,” said Regis president Antoinette M. Hays, PhD, RN. “The firm’s work impresses us with its excellent quality, and we look forward to working together to achieve Regis’ goals.”

The renovation will include a 72-bed suite-style, four-story dormitory addition that will expand Maria Hall by 31,000 square feet. The upgrades will feature enhanced fire protection to Angela, Domitilla, and Maria Halls, as well as campus-wide utility improvements to the water and electrical services. A new quad and walkway, providing security and lighting, will convert the existing focal point of the campus into a green space, connecting the quadrangle, athletic and science centers, and the Spellman Philatelic Museum. The library entrance will also be changed to face the campus’ new quad.

“Our higher education institutions must have visionary plans to meet the needs of students in the 21st century,” said Suffolk Chairman and CEO John F. Fish. “We are thrilled to be partnering with Regis College to help build a campus infrastructure that will benefit the students of today and future leaders of tomorrow.”

The Suffolk team is utilizing Target Value Design and Lean Construction techniques to ensure efficient project delivery, which is scheduled for completion in June 2015. The architect firm is Sasaki Associates Inc. and Colliers International is the owner’s project manager.

Regis College is currently applying for a grant for a new science center, which is proposed for Phase Two. Also included in Phase Two are renovations to the existing student center as well as additional renovations to the library, dormitories, and athletic center.
