Serving as the Implementing Architect for restoration of the Michigan State Capitol, our architectural staff provided designs for the House Chamber, House Offices, Upper Corridors, Rotunda, Interior Fire Escapes and Public Toilet Rooms.
The restoration included returning the Capitol to its original grandeur while meeting modern day functional needs and code requirements. The restoration integrated technology for computer networking, telephones, voting systems, television connections for telecasting functions in the Chamber and Appropriations Room and systems for multi-media presentation.
Modern codes were addressed to provide adequate plumbing facilities, Life Safety and handicapped accessibility.
Air conditioning was discretely integrated into the historic architecture.
Awards included the American Institute of Architects Honor Award, National Trust for Historic Preservation Award and AIA Michigan Honor Award.
