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.
