LI Exec. of the Month: Michael Mark, AIA, principal and owner of MDSA and partner/chief architect of NursePod

Michael Mark ( SHS 1968) is partner/chief architect for NursePod as well as the principal of Mark Design Studios Architecture (MDSA).

MDSA is a leading architectural design firm with an extensive portfolio of successful projects of educational, municipal and multi-family housing projects throughout the greater New York area, including new structures, building additions and renovations, capital improvements, bond referendum projects, parks and recreational facilities.

Most recently he and his team created NursePod, a modular structure that serves as a remote school nurse’s office to protect students and school staff against COVID-19 spread. The units are constructed offsite and installed on a foundation, streamlining the process for building permits and reducing onsite labor as well as the time needed for a traditionally constructed building. Three of the NursePods were installed at schools in the Glen Cove School District in March, allowing for the resumption of full-time instruction there.
