Sigma Supports STEM Education
Sigma led the environmental engineering and remediation effort for the Dwight and Dian Diercks Computational Science Hall, a 65,000+ SF, state-of-the-art computer science facility for MSOE’s artificial intelligence (AI) education and next generation technologies programs. The new building was recently completed on a site that was previously a surface parking lot at the corner of N. Milwaukee Street and E. State Street, Milwaukee, WI.
Sigma is honored to provide continuing services to support MSOE and to be a part of this project focused on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) academics. We take pride in our involvement with educational institutions that help educate the next generation of STEM professionals. Sigma’s staff is composed of many outstanding MSOE graduates and we look forward to our continued growth with talented engineers and scientists from MSOE.
Sigma’s environmental engineering activies for the MSOE Dierks Computational Science Hall began in 2017 with initial Phase II Environmental Site Investigation (ESA) and geotechnical investigation activities for the then proposed science hall building. The Phase II ESA work identified contaminated historic fill and led to NR 716 site investigation activites, including the collection of soil and groundwater samples and remedial action planning to manage the contaminated soil during site construction. Sigma prepared a Soil Management Plan and directed soil management activities during the earthworks.
The project received case closure from the WDNR in August of 2020.
