Waltham, MA – Hobbs Brook Management LLC, a developer of office space in the Boston suburbs, has announced that Bradley Cardoso, AIA, has joined the firm as a project manager and principal architect. He will be replacing Gerard (Jerry) M. LeBlanc, AIA, as the firm’s principal architect, who will retire in June 2015 after 17 years with the firm. Brad’s primary role will be to ensure design and construction activities in Hobbs Brook’s growing portfolio, contributing value and a positive environment for its tenants and their employees.
Brad’s responsibilities include overseeing the construction of all major capital projects, hiring and managing contractors and the design team, and ensuring all buildings and related construction projects adhere to Hobbs Brook’s stringent standards of quality. As an architect accustomed to designing a building and then turning it over to a client, Brad is most looking forward to working on projects that will remain under his management for the long term, and building relationships with tenants who occupy those spaces.
“Brad has an extensive background in design and project management, as well as a successful track record working with our team,” said Kevin Casey, vice president of construction and leasing at Hobbs Brook. “He is a tireless worker with old school work habits and is a natural choice, as well as a great complement, to our team.”
Prior to joining Hobbs Brook, Brad was a senior associate at Margulies Perruzzi Architects (MPA) where he led the MPA Healthcare Studio. In this role, he oversaw the planning and design of MPA’s complex healthcare projects employing Lean Design practices and applying advanced planning and architectural techniques. While at MPA, Brad was the project manager for Vistaprint’s new headquarters building in the Hobbs Brook Office Park in Waltham. Brad’s extensive building technology knowledge and construction experience was key to that project’s success.
Brad received a Bachelor of Architecture from Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston and is a registered architect in the state of Massachusetts. He is also affiliated with the American Institute of Architects in New Hampshire, is a member of the Newton New Hampshire Zoning Board of Appeals, and is a master mason with the Lynnfield-Zetland Lodge A.F. and A.M.
