GE announced the selection of Suffolk Construction Company as construction manager for the development of GE's new global headquarters in Boston.
Suffolk will provide pre-construction services related to the development of the new 12-story building on the campus. In this first phase, Suffolk will work closely with the project architect, Gensler, on refining and completing the design. In addition, Suffolk will develop the project timing, sequencing, logistics and cost.
Once complete, construction of the new 295,000 sq. ft. (27,406 sq m) building will begin.
The selection of Suffolk came after a thorough evaluation of many local firms.
