exciting, multi-million dollar capital improvement
project - under the auspices of Michael Shilale
Architects, LLP (MSA), a growing New City, NY
architectural engineering firm - is about to begin
construction in Rockland County.
The energy efficiency capital improvements for North
Rockland’s 10 schools (recently approved by NY SED)
involved careful analysis of numerous factors.
Boosted by Governor Cuomo’s innovative clean energy
and environmental initiatives, the resulting
recommendations made by Michael Shilale Architects
achieved cost-savings that will foot the bill for
the entire project. Happy news for tax-weary North
“Every project we’re involved with has it’s own set
of objectives and unique challenges. For my team,
the key for creating the best result is through a
thoughtful review of all options, creative design,
energy-smart materials and expert construction,”
says Michael Shilale, AIA, LEED, and founding
partner of MSA..
“We chose Michael Shilale Archtiects for this
important energy-efficiency project, because of

economically frugal situations.”
This complex project creates the funds for a new 3
million dollar roof constructed to be self healing
