BOSTON – Suffolk Construction recently won a prestigious Build New England Award from the AGC of Massachusetts. At the awards gala at the InterContinental Hotel in Boston, The Elliot at River’s Edge Ambulatory Care Center project team was recognized with a Performance Award for their outstanding collaborative approach toward the successful completion of the state-of-the-art medical facility.
The Elliot at River’s Edge Ambulatory Care Center is a 258,000 square-foot, four-story facility built on a reclaimed brownfield site. Located adjacent to the Merrimack River in Manchester, New Hampshire, the $67.5 million project includes an Urgent Care facility and a One Day Surgery Center, along with facilities for diagnostic imaging, breast health, endoscopy, pain management, physical rehabilitation, and pulmonary rehabilitation. Construction of a six-level, 966-car parking garage with a pedestrian bridge connection to the Ambulatory Care Center was also part of the project scope. The impressive project was completed ahead of schedule and under budget, and is expected to receive the first LEED for Healthcare certification in the country.
The Elliot project team honored with a Build New England Award included Elliot Health System (owner), Anagnost Companies (developer), Suffolk Construction in a joint venture with Eckman Construction (construction managers), CUBE 3 Studio (architect), and several subcontractors.

The awards are given equally by a jury of professionals to the owner or developer, primary design firm, contractor, and key subcontractors for their collaborative efforts toward the successful completion of a project.
