Subcontractor development series: our commitment to disadvantaged, minority and women business enterprises goes beyond good faith effort.

A successful construction project is measured by more than aesthetics, energy efficiencies and adherence to schedule and budget. We realize that the construction process must also benefit and support the disadvantaged, minority and women business communities. At Suffolk, our steadfast commitment to provide equal access and opportunity for all qualified, experienced firms is embedded in every member of our project teams. That’s why we launched the Subcontractor Development Series—a program designed to provide disadvantaged, minority and women-owned trade subcontractor firms valuable insight on how to successfully work with us.

Classes are offered to union and non-union subcontractors that are certified by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE), Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) or Women Owned Business Enterprise (WBE), and have been in business for a minimum of two years. The free, eight-session series begins on September 4, 2014. Applications for the 2014 program are no longer being accepted. For more information on the program, please see the sidebar.
