Construction Continues on Sorority Row

Construction is in full swing on Brenau’s Gainesville campus as crews are well underway in framing the first of four new sorority houses along Prior Street in a $6.5 million project that also will include a three-story residence hall.

The new sorority houses, scheduled for completion in the spring and summer of 2015, will replace four buildings that were razed during the summer. Sites for each new sorority house have been cleared and concrete foundation pads have been poured and cured.

Work along sorority row will continue in an “assembly line fashion” except, instead of the houses moving, the crews will continue to move from site to site completing a stage of each house as they go.

The first house, on the location of the former Alpha Chi Omega house, is on schedule to be completed in March and the rest of the houses will be competed by the end of summer at the latest. Construction on the new residence hall will begin next spring after the sorority houses are completed.

The new sorority buildings will each house 17 students and the residence hall will have space for between 70-90 students.
