The Capitol building should function efficiently while providing a healthy and comfortable environment for occupants and visitors. To meet this need, the project includes some maintenance improvements such as replacement of multiple failing systems or systems that have reached end-of-life including cooling towers, electrical switchgear, specific restroom plumbing and ventilation system parts, and safety and efficiency upgrades for the heating system.
The exterior of the building will also have repairs completed including re-sealing of the exterior marble and windows on the 1938 building, replacement of broken window panes and repair of window operability issues. The roof membrane will be repaired and skylights that are currently failing will be repaired or replaced to eliminate leaks. Flaking plaster in the artwork in the rotunda will be repaired, as well.
