Prove impossible wrong

Our vision is to “prove impossible wrong.” Because we believe if there’s a better way, we’ll find it. We’re always challenging the norm and pushing the boundaries of what is possible. At Suffolk, to constantly innovate is a pledge and promise we make to our clients, partners and communities. And ourselves. Proving impossible wrong is in our soul. It’s who we are and how we work. One project at a time. We’re talking about a revolution here. Join us.

The Power of People

We believe in the power of people. Our people. We are caring and passionate, curious and engaged, diverse and inclusive. We take great pride in our work, and we’re committed to asking questions and thinking differently about the world around us. We believe the best ideas come from individuals who share their knowledge and unique experiences with each other while remaining focused on achieving the same goals. We seek and embrace the strengths in others, and we understand that incorporating different perspectives, ideas and backgrounds into our work make us better at what we do. Together, our people are bringing about transformative change in our industry that will last for generations to come.

Unrelenting Inventing

We believe in the power of innovation. We’re committed to building and reinforcing a culture of invention and curiosity at Suffolk. We empower our people to challenge the status quo, think differently and push the boundaries of what is possible. Because we know the best ideas come from the best and most curious people — people with the freedom to explore and experiment with new ideas. And achieve big dreams. In the end, we know it is this strong culture of innovation and shared mindset that allow us to constantly ‘innovate on the edge’ and redefine what it means to be a builder.

Caring and Acting

Making a positive difference in our local communities is an integral part of our unique culture and best describes who we are as an organization. We are committed to providing financial support, tools, resources and expertise to philanthropic causes that make a positive impact on future generations. We support our own Suffolk family and friends in times of their greatest need. And we are passionate about helping others through our spirit of volunteerism and involvement. Giving back is in our DNA. It’s who we are and what we do. And it’s part of what makes Suffolk such an incredible and fulfilling place to work.
