ATLANTA-Suitt Construction Co., a 34-year-old, 1,500-employee national general contractor based in Greenville, SC, has added another industry citation to its trophy wall–a merit award from the Georgia chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors.

Suitt was cited for its design-build construction of Crossroads, a $30 million, 10-building family entertainment attraction that is part of Stone Mountain Park in Stone Mountain, GA, an Atlanta suburb.

The park is owned by Silver Dollar City Corp., a Branson, MO-based theme park developer with active ventures in Branson, MO ($40 million Celebration City) and Pigeon Forge, TN (Dollywood with entertainer Dolly Parton).

At Crossroads, Suitt built the simulated theme-park town from wood and angled the entire project slightly out-of-kilter to resemble 1870s style construction, ABC says in a prepared statement. The buildings consist of a restaurant, mill and bakery, 4-D theater, ticketing facility and candy, glass, blacksmith, candle, tintype and general mercantile shops.

Suitt was founded in 1968 by Howard Suitt and is a subsidiary of BE&K Inc. of Birmingham, AL. Suitt’s annual sales average $500 million to $1 billion, according to its Web site.

About 50% of the company’s volume is generated from design-build projects and 80% of repeat clients. Suitt is a founding member of the Design-Build Institute of America.
