The executive vice president of Elite Building Corp, Michael Snedeker has transformed the company into one of the most successful commercial construction firms in Waltham, Massachusetts. Michael Snedeker is a Boston native, a city that is in the midst of a building boom.
Boston’s skyline is dotted with cranes as the city continues to be the site of construction, large and small. In 2018, the city’s Planning and Development Agency approved over seven billion dollars in new development, and the trend seems to continue through 2019. The agency’s director of development reported that on any given day, there are more than 100 large construction sites within city limits. Several multi-phase projects are expected to extend the construction boom well into the next several years.
Bursts of construction have been typical in the city for centuries as the city became bigger and more densely populated. The latest period of growth, however, surpasses any previous ones.
