The Iowa Xi Alumni Corporation Board for Phi Kappa Theta at Iowa State University has established a building committee of alumni who are professionals in the fields of architecture, engineering, and construction to guide this project and establish the chapter’s project plans for this capital fundraising campaign. A feasibility study was conducted to provide insight regarding their financial capability. In all areas, the building committee has been instructed to be mindful of budget constraints, as well as mandatory building and fire code requirements. In addition, they placed a special emphasis on the use of practical and durable building materials, finishes, and fixtures to withstand high-volume use over a number of years.
