The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee recently finished its second of three phases for retrofitting Sandburg Towers with fire sprinklers. Sandburg Towers are connected high-rise dormitories located on the UW-Milwaukee campus. The first phase at West Tower was completed in the summer of 2002. Then, between June-Aug. 2003, the North Tower was completed. In the summer of 2004, the third and final stage of this project will be completed with the retrofitting of the South Tower.
