Sigma Chi at Indiana University

During a 90-day summer break, CF Jones worked with architect Charles M. Brown to deliver a full interior renovation of the Sigma Chi fraternity house at Indiana University. Renovation of the 21,400-square-foot building included three floors and a finished basement, as well as enhancements to the 2.5-acre property. As general contractor, our contributions to this Greek housing renovations project included:
  • Upgrading a full commercial kitchen and large dining room
  • Installation of a security system and zoned HVAC with chiller
  • Updating electrical, plumbing, and sprinkler systems
  • Refreshing exterior paint and tuckpointing
  • Landscaping including a new entry garden
  • Creating an independent house director apartment
Architect Charles R. Brown designed and specified beautiful custom interior finishes, and as general contractor, CF Jones created custom wood trim and casework, a custom tile entry, and unique finishes to bring that vision to life.

Because of the fast-track, 90-day schedule, this project called for constant communication, quick decisions and regular progress meetings. Renovations included all four house floors. Each study/sleep room was totally renovated, along with hallways and restrooms serving each floor. Enhancements to the main level brought the rich, warm look back to life by refinishing wood floors and casework, as well as installation of new custom trim. Updated wall coverings and paint completed the renovation.
For our work as general contractor on the Sigma Chi Greek housing renovations project, CF Jones earned the ABC Award of Excellence.
