Walker’s Point Development Attracts New Firm to Milwaukee

Natural Resource Technology (NRT), an environmental engineering and consulting firm currently based in Pewaukee, will be moving its offices in June 2013 to the fifth floor of 234 W. Florida Street, Milwaukee, in the Walker’s Point neighborhood. The move will
allow the environmental engineering and consulting firm the ability to directly and easily
collaborate with Milwaukee’s burgeoning water cluster and global hub for
freshwater research. NRT will have 50 staff members in its new offices.

The new offices will be very near to The Water Council’s Water Technology Accelerator building and the developing Reed Street Yards water technology business park.

“It was tremendous news to hear that Natural Resource Technology will be less than
a five minute walk from The Water Council accelerator,” says Dean Amhaus,
President and CEO, The Water Council. “This is exactly what our 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

Related to freshwater, specific services NRT offers include:

  • Surface water and sediment sampling/offshore coring 
  • Contaminated sediment site assessment and remediation 
  • Remedial investigations and hydrogeologic assessments 
  • Groundwater modeling and monitoring
  • Groundwater remediation
  • Data management, interpretation, and statistical analysis

“This move and location fit extremely well with our services and ongoing work in the Great Lakes,” says 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.”
