Haverstraw Water Supply Project

A proposed 7.5 mgd water treatment facility
on the Hudson River  

 
   

 

Michael Shilale Architects, LLP (MSA) has committed their practice to sustainable design for a number of years. Michael Shilale became a LEED Acredited Design Professional in 2003, and has brought sustainable strategies to their schools, offices, residential and industrial projects.

When United Water was looking for a design firm to assist with their new desalination plant, MSA was the firm they chose. Their knowledge of local codes and ties to the community, combined with their emphasis and experience with sustainable design made them a perfect choice.

MSA’s sustainable expertise and recommended strategies will help reduce the energy use required for the new treatment facility.
 
Another important goal of the project is minimizing the architectural impact of the plant. An intake structure on the shores of the Hudson River is required. The selected site is adjacent to an industrial site. MSA’s early design studies attempts to bridge the transition between the marina and the industrial site to the south with the residential sites to the north
 
   
  Preliminary designs incorporate nautical elements that harmonize well with the Hudson riverfront suggesting images of a boathouse and other waterfront architecture.

MSA’s 3D modeling capability proved valuable to view proposed designs in context with massing studies and photo simulations from the river.
