Wyoming State Capitol Restoration
The Wyoming State Capitol is a National Historic Landmark and the State’s most significant building. Constructed in three phases, 1888, 1890 and 1970 respectively, the detailing, wood species and construction methodology differs slightly throughout each building campaign. The restoration returned the historic decorative elements and grandeur of this architectural treasure while maintaining its historic character and integrity. The beautifully restored Wyoming Capitol continues to be the pride of the residents of Wyoming.
The project goals included protecting and preserving the character of the building; replacing the outdated building systems, infrastructure, and technology to allow the government to function in an efficient manner; addressing life safety throughout the building; and maintaining the openness and welcoming nature of the building for visitors.
CSHQA worked on this project as the Historic Preservation Architect in conjunction with HDR, Inc. out of Denver, CO who is the Architect of Record.
