Colorado State Capitol

Project Overview

Historic Restoration

After decades of persistent moisture infiltration and deviations from the historic character of the envelope building, FP was chosen to remove the Capitol’s existing roof and restore it with copper and slate roofing, replicating its original condition when it was first built in the late 1800s. Navigation of the tight site, safe transfer of workers and supplies, and protection of historic murals and building finishes were unique challenges to solve. The early discovery of asbestos in the original roofing and attic quickly expanded the scope of the project and the complexity of an already challenging site.

No other landmark is as reminiscent of Colorado’s history and as indicative of its future than the State Capitol. Built with iconic Colorado materials from across the state, this national landmark is home to the legislative decision makers and civic community alike. To uphold this important institution, the State Capitol remained 100% operational throughout the duration of the project.
