Evans Scholars Scholarship House

Champaign, IL

Rod Reid, as Principal of RATIO/Severns, Reid & Associates provided complete architectural and interior design services to design, document, and oversee construction of a new 38,000 square foot co-ed fraternal house, coordinating structural and mechanical requirements. 

The project was renovated again in 2010, meeting the needs of the co-ed chapter by housing 115 students in four-person suites, each with its own bathroom facilities.  Three new study rooms with audio visual capabilities, exercise room, Chapter Room and Recreation facilities were recently renovated in the Lower Level to accommodate the large membership and bring the members together in social, living and play space.  The Chapter House includes formal living  and Board rooms.  ADA compliant living quarters are provided on every floor. 

The exterior of the building is clad in brick and cast stone panels, with slate roofing.  Equipped with a sprinkler system and an elevator, the new scholarship house provides the students with an exceptionally safe, abuse-resistant facility that allow access by occupants and Visitors.
