Suffolk Construction Named Southeast Contractor of the Year
Suffolk Construction, general contractor for Privé at Island Estates, was named 2015 Contractor of the Year for the Southeast U.S. region by Engineering-News Record (ENR) magazine. ENR is the construction industry’s most essential and trusted independent source of breaking news and analysis.
Suffolk won recognition for 2015 earnings that jumped 83% from the previous year. In addition, four of the firm’s projects landed on ENR’s Top Starts list of the largest projects to start construction in 2015. That list includes Privé, an ultra-exclusive residential development now rising on South Florida’s last private island.
“We already knew Suffolk was one of the best in the business, or we wouldn’t have selected them to build Privé,” Said Greg Freedman of BH3, one of the project’s developers. “It’s a well-deserved honor, and we congratulate Jeff Gouveia and his entire Southeast Operations team.”
Privé has been ranked by Elite Traveler as the #1 most desirable ultra-luxury residential real estate development in all of Florida, and #14 in the entire world.
The project features two 16-story towers with just 80 residences each on an eight-acre island in Aventura.
DREAM BIG at Privé
Surrounded by open air, sea and sky, Privé offers a level of privacy unrivaled in South Florida. Residents are encouraged to Dream Big, thanks to spacious residences up to 9,536 square feet with flow-through floor plans and expansive balconies offering spectacular city and ocean views.
Residents of Privé will enjoy a host of luxurious features and amenities, including roughly 70,000 square feet of indoor social spaces, a two-story, 10,000-square foot gym and spa in each tower, and several acres of outdoor amenities including an expansive pool deck with two oversized swimming pools. Privé also boasts a private marina for yachts up to 150 feet in length.
Suffolk’s construction crews at Privé are now up to the 14th floor, with topping off for both towers expected this summer. Estimated completion date is on schedule for Summer 2017.
