In 2002, JE Dunn was hired to preserve and restore the historic Kansas State House located in the heart of Topeka.
This project was designed as a 10-year, six-phase project that allowed for staggered completion dates of the interior restoration of the East, West, North and South wings. Much of the interior space was restored to its earlier grandeur and included the restoration of the Governor's office to its circa 1900 design. Upgrades to the heating/cooling systems and added state-of-the-art technology are included.
Additional phases have included the construction of a new two-level, 561-car underground parking garage situated below the north lawn. New underground vaults for additional office space and new mechanical systems, a new visitor's center with a U-shaped drive, and a north plaza round out the project.
