The Minnesota State Capitol is Minnesota’s most famous landmark, originally constructed in 1905 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. JE Dunn completed a comprehensive renovation to address the needs of restoration, life safety, accessibility, preservation, and long-term functionality. Key design features include raised ceiling heights, restoration of the vast decorative painting and fine art murals, new skylights, and new historically appropriate elevators. A complete overhaul of the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems was performed. Exterior work includes stone restoration, historic window replacement, and new copper roofing. Ornate stonework required master carvers to be on-site for several years. All Capitol plazas and grand stair entries were removed, waterproofed, and reinstalled. Work also includes a new main plaza public gathering space, bus drop offs, and security measures. A pedestrian tunnel connects the Capitol to other State buildings.
