Newly Energized

Gross Chemical Laboratory is partially renovated
May 20, 2014

Environmental and energy studies at Duke have a new home on campus, thanks to renovations on the first floor of Gross Chemical Laboratory, or Gross Chem, that took place this summer. Dubbed the Energy Hub, the space, once furnished this fall, will contain a new multidisciplinary center that will be headed by Lincoln Pratson, professor of energy and environment at the Nicholas School of the Environment.

The $1.5 million center contains classrooms, teaching labs, and meeting space. It will involve faculty members from several of Duke’s professional schools, along with Trinity College.
