"This goal requires a unique restoration to implement some of these objectives that have never been performed
Manhattan Construction is leading a massive interior restoration project on the Oklahoma State Capitol.
before," Nelson says.
"The restoration efforts had to allow for the implementation of new mechanical and electrical systems while being respectful of the historic architectural elements of the Capitol building."
Addressing public access and security to the Capitol is another important goal of the oversight committee and in turn has become a top priority for the project team, according to Nelson.
Presently, the vast majority of the public enters the building through a secondary egress door on the southeast corner of the building, which was never intended to be an entrance point.
Because of security reasons, the main and ceremonial entrance is not used and does not allow for modern day Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) access requirements.
There is a single security station at the public entrance where lines become very long during busy times at the Capitol.
"The security threats we face today are quite different than those planned a century ago," Nelson says.
"Our team worked meticulously to develop increased security elements that are not obtrusive to visitors and people who work at the Capitol building."
To address these concerns, a new visitor entrance will be constructed at the southeast corner of the building.
This entrance addresses public accessibility, ADA access, security and climate controls, and it reduces the overall distance to public parking by tying into the existing pedestrian tunnel.
"It has been a tremendous challenge to address public access to the Capitol - and it is very important that our team provides the right solution," Nelson says.
Sixty-five miles of abandoned cabling will be removed.
"In the grand scheme of things, this is absolutely a monumental under-
taking," Nelson said.
"The Capitol is a $1.2 billion asset."
There has never been a comprehensive refurbishment of the state Capitol.
"This is a one-time investment for the next century," Nelson said.
"We're looking at this as a 100-year renovation to provide the same thing the original builders did for us."
