Work began this summer on a new enclosed stair tower to replace the former fire escape on the north side of our Chapter House. The brick-clad stair tower will occupy the footprint of the former kitchen storage porch and will provide code a compliant egress path from the basement via the laundry and will link the 2nd and 3rd floor bedroom corridors via new steel connector walkways to the tower. The design has been carefully aligned to accommodate a planned bedroom addition to follow. This project is one of the first to be funded by the University’s centrally-managed Capital Improvement Fund for fraternities and sororities. The project will be completed in September 2015.
