The Brooklyn Tech community mourns the loss on January 1st of deeply engaged alumnus, Alfred (Al) Schroeder ’46. The Alumni Foundation was proud in 2018 to host a dedication ceremony for the Al Schroeder ’46 Industrial Design Laboratory, made possible with support from longtime friend Floyd Warkol ’65, chairman/CEO, KSW Mechanical.
Al was Vice President and Chief Engineer of KSW and began his career as an engineer at two of NYC’s leading engineering firms. After working as a Vice President of a large general contractor on projects such as the JFK Airport Mail Facility, Al joined a KSW predecessor company in 1981 and continued ever since to provide valued engineering services to design professionals and contractors who work with KSW.
At the lab dedication event, Al made a generous gift to benefit the Industrial Design major at Brooklyn Tech. Al, who most recently participated in Homecoming 2022, will be missed by all who knew him.
