Global Water Center

Global Water Center Housing water-centric research facilities for universities, existing water-related companies, and accelerator space for new, emerging water tech companies.
(4)

Spurred by the close research and business development work between the Milwaukee region’s water technology businesses and academia, The Water Council and partners created a water research and business accelerator center in Milwaukee’s Walker’s Point neighborhood. The Global Water Center, which celebrated it’s grand opening on September 12, 2013, houses water-related research facilities for universities, existing water-related companies and accelerator space for new, emerging water-related companies. The facility is a venue for attracting and creating new businesses in the water industry, and aims to address key local and global water-quality, technology and policy issues. The Global Water Center features common area amenities, including a 44 person lecture hall, exhibition space for new prototypes and, most importantly, high-tech, shared, core facilities. These core facilities, such as a state-of-the-art water flow lab, are critical to supporting the cutting-edge water research and product development activities of the cluster. The Global Water Center provides resources and expertise that are not presently available anywhere else in the world, adding to our unique nature is the designation by the United States Green Building Council of Silver LEED Certification, for the Core & Shell rating system. This building’s redevelopment also serves as a catalyst for the development of the Reed Street Yards (RSY), located across the street, which have been designated by the city of Milwaukee as a Global Water Technology Business Park. RSY is a mixed-use, urban office, educational research and technology zone focused on the international water industry; serving as a global showcase for water management. RSY balances natural resources with economic development by incorporating bio-swales, rain gardens, “purple-pipe” infrastructure, and pervious pavement. The Global Water Center–a confluence of industry, academia, and government expertise and resources–provides leading-edge technology and solutions necessary to succeed in the world water marketplace.

“After meeting with Dean Amhaus [CEO of The Water Council], it became very apparent to me that the opportunity to network with personnel from other companies and influential people would occur if I relocated PaveDrain® to the Global Water Center. It is considered a badge of honor to be here and garners a certain amount of instant respect from prospective customers and clients.”

I was a tenant here 11 months. I was relocated with my job and so I needed to terminate my lease. I paid two months extra rent to break the lease. Now Serif, Global Water is only returning $125 of my $1,000 security. Be very careful of this company. They accused me of smoking in the apartment, which I never did, thus charging me for painting and carpet cleaning which are normal maintenance!!! They offered me free day parking to reel me in and then took it away! They tried to enter my apartment without notice. I was home! Be very careful. There are plenty of nice apartments in Milwaukee! Get copies of everything or take pictures. They don't give you anything on the spot! BE CAREFUL!!
