University of Kansas Builds Earth, Energy and Environment Center

Published 10-28-2015

The University of Kansas is building the $82 million Earth, Energy and Environment Center in Lawrence. Featuring laboratories for isotope analysis, 3D visualization, and computing, the multidisciplinary complex will accommodate programs in geology, nanoscience, physics, chemistry, and chemical and petroleum engineering. The 130,000-sf center will also provide a 30-seat mediated synchronous collaboration lab and conference room, a 150-seat auditorium, and a 10-workstation suite for industry and academic partners. The project was designed by Gould Evans as two towers rising from a connected base, creating Ritchie Hall on the north side and Slawson Hall on the south. Occupancy is expected in 2017.
