Who We Are

Matt Michel, AIA, LEED® AP BD+C


Matthew, who has been at SGA for 20 years, oversees many of the firm’s largest and most complicated projects across a range of building types.  He enjoys navigating challenges in cases where contractual arrangements, methods of project delivery, and technologies diverge significantly from industry norms.

In addition to the projects Matthew leads directly, as the head of SGA’s QAQC team, he serves as an internal resource for both the architecture and interiors studios and works closely with colleagues to establish firm-wide standards and code-compliance reviews.   At the same time, he continually explores new ways of approaching project delivery, including strategies to employ processes from SGA’s Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) services into everyday practice.

Before joining SGA, Matthew served as an associate at a Boston-based architecture and planning firm that specializes in public sector projects.  During his 12-year tenure there, he developed a reputation for detail-orientation, accuracy and client commitment.

Matthew received a Bachelor of Architecture from Virginia Tech.  Outside of the office, he enjoys reading about history and science, devotes time to woodworking and home improvement projects, and plays soccer – he is a midfielder in an over-the-hill men’s league.
