Global Water Center
Interiors and Brand Design

Milwaukee, Wisconsin

The Water Council worked with a Milwaukee developer to identify the project site – a 105-year-old, seven-story warehouse, which was converted into a water research and business accelerator building. The 98,000-square-foot building houses water-related research activities for universities, existing water industry companies, and companies promoting water-related business development

The Kahler Slater Environmental Branding and Interior Design team designed a state-of-the-art flow lab that allows testing to be performed in-house, quickly and efficiently. The interior building design was driven by sustainability and has achieved LEED Silver certification. Historic tax credits as well as new market tax credits were utilized.
