The renovation of the second and third floors at the Kappa Delta on the campus of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln was completed in the summer of 2016, in time for the ladies in the sorority to move in for rush and the new school year. The aim was update the finishes, furniture, and to transform the former study room/open sleeping dorm configuration of the third floor to separate sleeping and study rooms to create more options for those living there. There are now a mix of two person, three person, and four person sleeping room configurations; new choices for living arrangements already appreciated by the residents.
The contractor on the project, Dickey Hinds Muir, removed carpet in the corridors and refinished the wood floors, and laid new carpet tile in the sleeping/study rooms. Walls and trim were freshened up with new paint, and new desks, drawers, and bunks (by Cornhusker State Industries) were added in the sleeping rooms. The new open gathering area features a window seat which has already proven to be a hit with the residents.
It was a joy to work with the Kappa Delta ladies, alumni board, and Dickey Hinds Muir.

On Good Shepherd Sunday, April 17, 2016, Saint Teresa's Church in Lincoln, Nebraska was blessed by Bishop James Conley. The parish's 10 am Mass was filled with parishioners and neighbors to celebrate the culmination of over a year of planning and two months of construction.
Bishop Conley mentioned in his homily that the desire to beautify Saint Teresa's Church through renovation is a long seated tradition in the Catholic Church, citing Santa Prassede in Rome, which was renovated in the 9th century, as precedence.
The enhancements to Saint Teresa turns ones attention towards the liturgical actions that take place in this sacred structure. For example, the royal blue ceiling holding gold stars evokes the heavenly realm, our final home. Additionally, since the removal of the carpeting, the acoustical resonance of the church has greatly enhanced allowing the congregation to hear the fullness of the choir and the sung texts of the Mass.
The "new" church will only strengthen the dynamic and active parish life already existing at Saint Teresa.
