Sigma Nu All Bricked Up This Month
Greek Village Menu
Despite the weeks of rainy weather, construction crews are finishing up bricking the exterior of the Sigma Nu house in Greek Village. Curved bricks were special ordered to frame the bay windows, which should be complete in two weeks. Both brick and cast stone held with white sand mortar make up the masonry veneer of the house and give the building a more monolithic look from the street.
Crews also began installing the sprinkler system on the first and second floors as well as the HVAC and plumbing systems. Installation of the electrical wiring in the basement is complete and crews have begun wiring both the second and third floors of the building. The Sigma Nu house passed both the plumbing and fire protection rough-in inspections this week as crews continue their interior construction.
Last month, the Sigma Nu House “topped out” with the completion of the roof lantern. The Greek Village house landmark feature allows residents and visitors to experience a bit of grandeur walking into the lobby from the outside. The lantern sits 50 feet above the main entry and gives the lobby added natural light and functional opulence.
Even though construction crews were behind 18 days because of the rainy weather, they are working hard to make up those days and should be back on track again by August. Furniture was ordered for the bedrooms and dining room and the remaining furniture will be ordered this week. The Sigma Nu Greek Village house is on track for a January 2014 opening.
