10/31/2014: New York, NY: Once again Michael Shilale Architects, LLP (MSA) showed off some of their recent successes at the statewide convention for New York State School Board Association (NYSSBA) members in New York City. Each year MSA supports this conference geared to inform and educate school board members.
The 2015 Building Condition Surveys are right around the corner and many were impressed that MSA was able to help North Rockland Schools implement a 15 million dollar capital improvement program at almost no cost to their taxpayers. Bids for the 7 million dollar final phase of this program were recently opened under budget and ahead of schedule. Strategically using
EXCEL funding, finding Energy Performance savings and several other innovative strategies were implemented to deliver these important projects at no cost. MSA also took advantage of the new NYSED protocols that allowed approval of the project in six weeks rather than six months.
Over 100 school board members and staff from districts throughout the state stopped by to chat with us and participate in our annual Library Grant drawing.
This year's winner of the $250.00 Library Grant goes to Ms. Jillian Clausen, Trustee from the Peekskill City School District.
