Sarasota based Sutter Roofing Company has received several large contracts on significant projects in our area. The company was awarded the contract on the Atlanta Braves Spring Training Stadium and Clubhouses with Construction Manager Tandem / Barton Malow. Sutter will perform all the low slope roofing and sheet metal on the new $125 million-dollar facility. The firm said their experience on similar projects and the fact that they are a local contractor played a part in their selection. “We have successfully completed Spring Training projects at Ed Smith Stadium (Orioles), George M. Steinbrenner Field (Yankees), McKechnie Field (Pirates) Joker Marchand Stadium (Tigers) and also the Nationals Stadium in Melbourne” said Doug Sutter, company President. “We have proven that we can perform on these demanding, fast-track projects”
Sutter also received contracts on new construction projects in Manatee County including the East Manatee Middle School with Willis Smith Construction, North River High School with Gilbane Construction, and IMG Academy Hotel / Dormitory with Tandem Construction. “These are all significant new institutional projects with long-term customers that we enjoy working with. These facilites are necessary due to the tremendous growth of our area. They will enhance the already excellent education system in Manatee County and we are proud to be a trade partner on these projects.”
Sutter is also known for large reroofing projects and the company is current working on the Desoto Square Mall with Madison Properties, Southeast High School with AD Morgan Construction and several large condominium reroofs due to Hurricane Irma in Collier County.
The projects above are estimated to take almost 60,000 man hours to complete have an aggregate contract value of approximately $10 million. “The market is as robust as I have seen it in my 30-year career” remarked Doug. “These projects will keep a lot of local employees here on the Gulf Coast busy for months to come. There is even more work out there if we could get additional workers into our industry. That is an on-going challenge. However, we have the manpower to meet our clients objectives and schedules for these projects.”
