Construction on The Water Tower Campus is coming along nicely! The building now has walls and floors allowing us to see the amazing space that we will be moving into early next year. Reeves Young, who is construction Phase 1 of our campus, has started adding insulation and roughing in the plumbing. These improvements are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the work that has been done. An amazing 47,401 manhours have been put into this project this year alone. We are so grateful to our designers, contractors and subcontractors for their amazing work in bringing TWT’s campus to life!
We are so excited to provide the many resources and amenities of The Water Tower Campus to our partners, supporters, and community. Once the building is completed, the campus will be open to members of the water innovation community to foster new ideas, connections, and technology in all areas of the industry. The campus will include an on-site testing demo area and access to real water flows from F. Wayne Hill Water Resources Center. The main building includes conference, workshop, and training spaces, three state-of-the-art labs, co-working space, control room, and tenant space for water-related businesses. The lobby will feature interactive displays for the public to enjoy and learn about the value of water. The onsite field training center provides an area for hands-on operator training to supplement traditional classroom courses.
In addition to these resources, there will also be support provided through regular networking opportunities for service providers, technology manufacturers, and utilities. Access to water industry experts, Angel and Venture funds, and Gwinnett County Entrepreneurial Center will also be available to the entrepreneurs of the water world.
The campus holds incredible potential for innovators, and we can’t wait to see how much further we can reach. Follow us on social media and continue to visit our website to stay up-to-date on the latest progress update on the campus and hear about our other fun and exciting updates.
