Sigma Chi Centennial Chapter House at WSU

2020

The stunning new 15,000 square-foot Sigma Chi Centennial Chapter House at Washington State University Pullman, opened on August 8, 2020. PCS’s CEO, Brian Phair, was a member of the Sigma Chi Fraternity while at WSU majoring in both structural engineering and architecture. He performed the structural engineering, was designer partner (with Design West), and owner’s rep from start to finish of the two-year project. Designed after the fashion of its original, built 100 years ago, a pillared façade fronts the $6.2-million-dollar Centennial house. A granite plaque placed at the front door contains a time capsule with original 1919 house memorabilia. The interior grand foyer is flanked by a set of curving stair cases. The house provides sleep-study areas for junior and senior classmen, a gracious library-conference room, and is fully ADA accessible.
