21 M/W/VBE Trade Partners Complete 2024 “Build With Us @ Suffolk” Program in Boston


Boston – Suffolk recently held a graduation ceremony at its Boston headquarters for 21 firms that completed its “Build With Us @ Suffolk” program, a four-week business accelerator for trade partners and subcontractors that equips minority-, women- and veteran-owned business enterprises (M/W/VBE) with the skills they need to make their unique mark on the construction industry.

The program’s intensive eight-course curriculum provides participating businesses with an in-depth understanding of technology, risk management, business development, estimating, and other key construction processes. Program graduates were also paired with Suffolk mentors who will continue to guide them as they join an alumni network of nearly 250 businesses across the country that have completed the program since its launch in 2012.

The Build With Us @ Suffolk program graduates also had the opportunity to tour one of Suffolk’s signature projects in Boston, the South Station Tower. Opening in 2025, South Station Tower is a 51-story mixed-use tower situated over Boston’s most connected and active transit hub, boasting unrivaled vehicular and public transit accessibility.
