IF you are good and organized, you can have one batch mashing while the other is boiling.

I started the second mash while i was cooling the first wort. If i was a little more organized i could have started the second mash earlier and probably cut 30-45 minutes off that time. The first brew called for lots of different hop additions which kept me kind of busy. It was a fun day and I hit the exact gravity i was shooting for on both (with a little help from some dme on one of the brews)
