INDIANA UNIVERSITY FRATERNITY HOUSE


Built in 1955, the current structure is the fourth
Fraternity House in the history of Phi Delta
Thetas at Indiana University. The first house did
not exist until 1865; sixteen years after the chapter
was established at IU. The subsequent building
served the brothers from 1885 to 1912. The
Fraternity nicknamed the third structure, ‘The
Country Club’ which housed the organization
from 1912 to 1955.

Indiana University is recognized as one of the
most beautiful college campuses in the nation. The
current Phi Delta Theta Fraternity House,
nicknamed ‘The Castle’, was designed to
harmonize with the Ivy League ambiance by
coordinating with the prevalent architectural style
on campus. The exterior is clad in Indiana
limestone with a slate roof while the interior
features a functional and fire resistant concrete
masonry construction. The property is owned by
Indiana Alpha Student Scholarship Foundation.

Indiana University Campus and is therefore

Phi Delta Theta is determined to retain their
prestige as one of the most desirable fraternities on
campus. While they possess a long and proud
history; their house requires updates to attract
new members. New Fraternity Houses on the IU
Campus feature fully air conditioned spaces with
wireless computer connections and all new
finishes including furniture. These fraternities
provide these amenities via higher membership
fees and alumni donations. The Indiana Alpha
Student Scholarship Board believes that donations
may be more forthcoming from Phi Delta Theta
alumni if their Fraternity House reflects a style
and status that all the brothers, old and new, could
be proud of calling their own. The Board has
planned a phased renovation plan to return “The
Castle” to its previous splendor with new
amenities and improved living conditions.

conditions within the existing Phi Delta Theta
Fraternity House in 2007 with Phase 1 work being
completed in 2008 and 2009. We consulted with
Stephen Hoffman of Hoffman Engineers, Inc. in
regard to the mechanical, electrical, plumbing and
information technology systems.

The Indiana Alpha Student Scholarship
Foundation Board spent $ 466,121 in Phase 1
Renovations based on the initial study from
December 2007. The intent of this phase was to
improve living accommodations for the students
with the focus of the work affecting the student
rooms and living areas. Other major work
included new furnishings and finishes along with
maintenance items that needed to be addressed
such as the leaking sun porch roof, plumbing
issues and the kitchen exhaust system.

The prestige and durability of slate roof makes it
too important a feature to discard, also it appears
to be in good condition considering its age and
therefore should remain. Refer to Preservation

of Historic Slate Roofs for additional information.
However, the sun porch decking and small decks
above the bay windows required immediate
attention as they have allowed water to infiltrate
the building.

Work completed in Phase 1:
1. Remove previous repairs at decks above bay
   windows.
    a. Reconnect roof drains and downspouts
       with perimeter drains.
   b. Install membrane roof over tapered
       substrate – membrane to be level with
       bottom of balustrades.

                 PLUMBING
Indiana’s hard water has been a major contributor
to the deterioration of the Plumbing System. Since
the existing pipes are corroding from the inside,
cleaning is a temporary solution. The only real
solution is to replace the supply, waste, vent and
drain lines to the extent possible. However, the
plumbing lines were often run through the
concrete floor system which makes replacement
difficult if not impossible without major
demolition. The replacement of problematic
fixtures such as the floor mounted urinals which
have a tendency to overflow and damage the floor
system, ceiling and room below are crucial to
preventing further problems. The Hot Water
Heater is in good condition.

        HEATING and COOLING
The Heating and Cooling System, unfortunately,
experiences the same issue as the Plumbing
System. The pipes are corroding from the inside
due to hard water. The two-pipe system does not
allow for a consistent temperature value during
the spring and autumn and the baseboard fin
radiators have become heavily damaged from
years of abuse. The Boiler may be reused. Existing
monies did not permit the system to be reworked
in Phase 1 with only minor improvements
occurring. However, work is slated to be
completed in Phase 3.


Work completed in Phase 1:

1. Repairs to existing boiler.
2. Install new or replace damaged baseboard fin
   radiators covers in their entirety.
3. Clean kitchen exhaust and grease removal
   systems. New fryer.
4. Repair walk-in freezer condenser units as required.

                ELECTRICAL
The current system does not meet code on several
accounts and could potentially cause a power outage
or fire. This system has undergone multiple
uncoordinated add-ons and alterations over the years
which need to be analyzed by a qualified electrician.
Consistent light fixtures should be installed to
eliminate need for multiple lamps (light bulbs) and
create a consistent appearance throughout the
building. New fixtures should provide better light
quality and minimize glare.
As a conscientious Fraternity, energy consumption
should be a consideration, not only in terms of
saving money, but also the earth’s resources. New
fixtures should utilize energy efficient lamps such
as compact fluorescent bulbs.

1. Upgrade from 200W to 500W.

                LIFE SAFETY
The Phi Delta Theta Fraternity House does not
possess a sprinkler system nor does it possess the
number of life safety devices required per current
code requirements. Phase 1 improvements
updated the fire alarm to ring to a central
monitoring station that contacts the local Fire
Department. A sprinkler system is not
recommended at this time as it would lead to a
costly renovation. However, it should be kept in
mind for the future as Code now dictates that all
new Dormitories including Fraternity and Sorority
Houses must include a Sprinkler System.

Work completed in Phase 1:

1. Upgrade existing life safety devices including:
   a.   Fire Alarm Devices.
   b.   Smoke Detectors.
                                                               Updated Alarm System & New Extinguisher

                     DOORS
Due to the numerous students, security is nearly
impossible.   Therefore,    we    propose      the
introduction of keyless hardware system that
accepts a numbered code to retract the latch.
These systems can be reprogrammed at will to
accommodate new students or if there is a breach
in security. This eliminates the need for keys,
interchangeable cores and provides a greater level
of security.

Any door slabs that are changed out should meet
current code requirements. Interior doors should

therefore metal should be installed. These doors,

After the plumbing repairs were completed, the
majority of this work which was relegated to the
plumbing walls and shower areas was performed.
New sinks with an integral countertop will
prevent sinks from getting ripped from walls and
to provide much needed counter space. Toilet
waste stacks should maintain their current
locations so as not to have to complete a more
extensive demolition.

Work completed in Phase 1:

1. Repair damaged ceiling as required, paint.
2. Replace wall tile on plumbing walls to match
   existing color and pattern.
3. Install new sinks and shower head assemblies
   (see plumbing).

STUDENT ROOMS – UPPER LEVELS
These rooms receive the most wear and tear as the
students spend the majority of their time in their
rooms and also the inhabitants often change each
term. Therefore, we recommended making these
rooms as easy to maintain as possible by removing
finishes down to the substrate. Also, the existing
closets were in poor condition after years of
student modification and damage. New closets of
better quality material with closable doors were
necessary to accommodate student storage needs.

   lofts or other structures to be attached to walls
   or ceilings.

      WARM and COLD DORMS –
          THRID FLOOR
During the period when the House was leased to
Phi Sigma Kappa Fraternity, the Cold Dorm was
utilized as their Chapter Room. Since the glorious
return of Phi Delta Theta Fraternity to both their
house and the IU Campus, the room has been
restored back into a dormitory with all new beds
and finishes. The Warm Dorm is currently vacant
as Phi Delta Theta has not met full capacity in
their first year back on campus.                                                  Warm Dorm

OCCUPANCY and CONSTRUCTION TYPE
The Phi Delta Theta Fraternity House is classified
as Type R-2 Residential Occupancy with
secondary A-3 Assembly spaces. The second and
third floors are strictly residential with the first
floor being divided between residential and
assembly. Additional assembly areas including the
Dining Hall, Great Room and Chapter Room are
located on the lower level.

The building is a Type III-B Construction. This
indicates that all exterior walls are created of a
noncombustible material while interior building                Reception Hall – First Floor - Assembly Occupancy (2009 photo)
materials may be of combustible materials. The
building may rise to four stories in height with a
maximum of 16,000 square feet per floor. The ‘B’
classification signifies that the building does not
possess a sprinkler system.

The Fraternity House possesses approximately
21,000 square feet (including vertical circulation).


            OCCUPANT LOAD
R-2 Residential Occupancy allows for a maximum
floor area per occupant of 120 square feet. These
calculations include a certain percentage of shared
spaces to account for dormitory living. The
following spaces may be included in square
footage counts; separate living and sleeping areas
as well as corridors and restrooms.

The minimum allowable space for an apartment is
375 square feet. To be considered separate living
quarters from the dormitories, the apartment must
possess its own restroom. The House Mother
Apartment currently meets these criteria.

                RESTROOMS
The restroom facilities for the Phi Delta Theta
Fraternity House are adequate based on current
code requirements. However, not all facilities are
in working order. The lower level and third floor
restrooms appear to be unused due to plumbing
issues.

Plumbing Fixture Counts are based on the
