In this episode, Cherise is joined by Michael Schroeder, Partner at SGA
. He spearheads the firm’s Virtual Design and Construction arm, which he has led the growth and development of since 2014. Michael shares his experience working on The Kraft Group Office Project at Gillette Stadium
in Foxborough, MA. This addition to the existing Stadium is the first phase of a new, multipurpose building designed by SGA for the New England Patriots, International Forest Products and their parent owners, the Kraft Group. The four-story, 120,000-square-foot facility was designed to work with the stadium’s original architecture and interior building flow. Incredibly, this project was designed, built, and fully operational in just one year!
This project had unique challenges and opportunities - a hyper speed to market schedule requirement, the complexity of working with an existing structure, the use of proprietary management tools to aid in coordination and efficient delivery, and much more.
