Suffolk Construction, Massachusetts’ largest general contracting firm, is planning a $22 million expansion of its headquarters in Roxbury. The expansion is anticipated to span 38,000 square feet in space at 79-91 Allerton St. The site is contiguous to Suffolk’s existing headquarters at 65 Allerton St.
While Suffolk is able to accommodate 302 employees at its existing space, the company anticipates 10% growth over the next several years. The proposed expansion would also house 100 buildings from Liberty Construction, which is planning a relocation from Braintree, MA.
Suffolk’s expansion proposal takes place during a time when construction employment has increased throughout Massachusetts. Since its founding in the early 1980s, Suffolk has grown to employ 1,500 worldwide, 400 of which are based in Boston.
