About the Project
The Minnesota State Capitol Restoration Project is a $309.674 million, three plus-years restoration, renovation and repair initiative.
After more than a century of use, the Capitol building had reached a critical deterioration point:
- Crumbling exterior marble and stone
- Life-safety concerns
- Antiquated mechanical, electric and plumbing systems
- Inefficient and cumbersome spaces for the public
Construction began in fall 2013 and will end in 2017.
This is the first comprehensive preservation of the Capitol building since its original construction in 1905. When completed, this historic project will prepare our Capitol for the next 100 years.
