Fraternity/Sorority Project Feature
CF Jones Construction has been bringing smiles to fraternity and sorority groups by revamping and sometimes fully designing brand new Greek houses. CF Jones makes Greek houses more welcoming, adaptable, and modernly functional for Greeks sisters and brothers. Their latest project, along with Tabor Bruce Architecture, was the Sigma Delta Tau house on the Indiana University campus. Look at the smiles below….
This Sorority house addition and renovation were expanded to 30,000 sq. ft. to allow housing for approximately 85 students and provides 27 student day-rooms and two dormitory-style sleeping quarters. The three-story addition is constructed of CMU block, structural steel, and precast floor decking. Limestone and composite siding veneer provide the exterior design elements to blend with the existing structure. The interior space provides a new covered main entrance, and new chapter and meeting rooms. The second and third floors provide eight new day rooms and 2,100 sq. ft. conditioned dormitory sleeping areas.
This renovation included complete removal of the existing boiler system and installation of HVAC fan coil system that allows rooms on the second and third floors to be controlled independently. A new forced air system was installed on the entire first floor. A new fire suppression system was installed with a new main service line and new domestic water system. A new electrical system was also installed for the new loads and wiring. Also, two new restrooms were added on the 2nd and 3rd floors and two were added for guests on the 1st floor. Complete replacement of all windows and exterior siding was performed. All new paint, doors, trim and flooring completes the interior finish. Additional parking, landscaping, and sidewalks offer the finishing touches to this terrific project.
