Two crew people reframing Delta Chi houseSchool is in session, and the brothers of Delta Chi at Miami University in Oxford are moving into a fresh new residence renovated by the skilled workers of HGC. Delta Chi renovations began in the middle of May, and are set to wrap up in just a few more weeks.

Learn more about HGC’s experience in renovations.

The Delta Chi house was built in the mid 1950’s in a standard apartment building style. Working with Platte Architecture and the National Delta Chi Fraternity House Association, the 15,000 SF residence is being renovated and updated. The new layout will allow for more student residents, totaling 46 student rooms and one advisor suite.

All interior walls were removed to make room for a revised layout. After demo, it was discovered that the structure was in a bad state of disrepair, and extensive structural repairs were needed before the new walls could be reframed.

Upgrades include all new:

  • Aluminum windows with wood cladding
  • Plumbing
  • Electrical
  • Ductwork
  • LVT flooring, wood look-alike
  • Six-panel solid core wood doors
  • Bathroom fixtures
  • Laundry room
  • Recreational area
  • Wireless security systems

The team also replaced half of the existing HVAC, and removed and replaced the existing kitchen to make it larger and much more accommodating. The renovation raised the height of the basement ceilings, creating the opportunity for more common use.

With all main areas completed, the building is ready for students to move in. The kitchen and den in the basement as well as exterior improvements will be completed over the next few weeks.
