Hickory Construction Awarded Contract for Completion of 

UT Sorority Village Houses AOPi and Phi Mu

Knoxville, Tenn. — The University of Tennessee has awarded Blount County-based Hickory Construction with the completion of two UT Sorority Village houses for Alpha Omicron Pi (AOPi) and Phi Mu sororities, estimated for completion in advance of the 2013-14 academic year.

Hickory Construction assumes the projects from a former Nashville-based contractor that discontinued work on the site in early 2012.

The houses – funded completely through sorority chapter private donations and mortgage agreements that will be paid through residential and chapter fees to sorority members – include both residential and meeting space and are part of the UT Sorority Village development of 13 houses and one shared-use building.

Designed by Knoxville-based Red Chair Architects, the AOPi house is a 49-bed, Old World / European-style design with brick and carved stone detailing, at approximately 17,000 square feet.

“Hickory Construction is highly respected and known for attention to interior finishing detail in addition to overall quality construction,” said Ann Wallace, campaign chair for the AOII house.  “We are thrilled to have Hickory Construction oversee completion of the AOII house.”

Designed by Knoxville-based Studio Four, Inc., the Phi Mu house is a 41-bed, two-story Georgian C-shaped brick house, at approximately 12,000 square feet.

“Hickory Construction is excited to take on another University of Tennessee project and to see these houses through to successful completion,” said Burke Pinnell, president of Hickory Construction.

With past residential construction work that has been featured in Architectural Digest and Architectural Record, Hickory Construction’s other UT projects have included the Hydroponics Research Greenhouse, renovations and an addition to the UT Veterinary School and interior renovations to the Humanities Building.

Hickory Construction, Inc., is a licensed general contractor headquartered in Alcoa, Tenn., offering services for commercial, industrial and residential projects.  For more information, visit http://www.hickoryconstruction.com.
