BOSTON—Suffolk Construction Company, Inc., joined state and local officials, and representatives from AI Engineers, CBT Architects and Jones Lang LaSalle for the unveiling of plans for the new, $38 million AI Tech Center to be constructed at 3 Constitution Plaza in Hartford, Connecticut.
Suffolk will construct the 13-story, 259,000 square-foot office tower that will incorporate numerous green technologies, including photovoltaic power, a fuel cell power plant, and a rooftop garden and atrium that will maximize natural light throughout the building. The AI Tech Center has been designed and registered to achieve a LEED certification goal of Platinum under the Green Building Rating System, which is the highest designation issued by the U.S. Green Building Council.
“This is a very significant win for Suffolk and one that will significantly enhance our growing reputation as a leading builder of innovative green projects,” stated John F. Fish, Chairman and CEO of Suffolk Construction. “Our project team looks forward to erecting this landmark building in Hartford and collaborating with AI Engineers, CBT and other project team members to ensure the AI Tech Center achieves LEED Platinum certification and exceeds everyone’s expectations.”
Suffolk Construction has enjoyed a growing presence in Connecticut. Suffolk’s Connecticut team has collectively managed in excess of $3.2 billion of construction in the state and currently is managing construction of 360 State Street in New Haven, the largest residential high-rise tower to be built in Connecticut.
Suffolk will begin preconstruction services for the AI Tech Center immediately. Construction is scheduled to begin in spring 2010.
