Global Water Center
C.D. Smith served as a development partner for renovations to what is now the Global Water Center in Milwaukee, as well as provided Preconstruction, Construction Management and General Contracting services. What was once an old warehouse building was renovated into a first class loft office building, and is now the international headquarters for The Water Council, housing major corporations, universities, start-up companies and non-profits from all over the world, all working in the field of water research and technology.
The Global Water Center is the world's only state-of-the-art water business and research facility. The seven-story R&D building achieved Silver LEED Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council and was the first commercial building to implement the Alliance for Water Stewardship's International Water Standard. It is a featured project on Kahler Slater's website, with sustainability cited as the main driver for the building design. Exposed timber ceilings showcase truth in materials and large windows invite natural light and allow for expansive views of downtown Milwaukee and Reed Street Yards.
