Natural Resource Technology (NRT), an environmental engineering and consulting firm currently based in Pewaukee, will move its offices in June to Milwaukee’s new Freshwater Hub.
The company will occupy the fifth floor of 234 W. Florida St., in Milwaukee’s Walker’s Point neighborhood. The move will allow the environmental engineering and consulting firm direct access for collaboration to better participate in the area’s burgeoning water efficiency cluster and global hub for freshwater research.
The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s School of Freshwater Sciences anchors the area’s rising position in the “blue economy.” Other freshwater partners in the area include the Global Freshwater Center, The Water Council, Water Technology Center, and other incubator companies.
“It was tremendous news to hear that Natural Resource Technology will become a close neighbor of The Water Council accelerator,” says Dean Amhaus, president and CEO of the Milwaukee Water Council. “This is exactly what The Water Council board envisioned when we set out to build a unique synergy between water technology companies in Walker’s Point. We know great things will happen when you bring great people together.”
“This move and location fit extremely well with our services and ongoing work in the Great Lakes,” said Rick Fox, sediment practices leader at NRT. “I look forward to collaborating with the scientists of the UWM School of Freshwater Sciences on current water-related issues, and to remaining at the forefront on technologies.”
