LOUISIANA OLD STATE CAPITOL

Renovation

- 1993-1994. The Louisiana State Capitol Building was conceived by Huey Long as a monument to symbolize the end of political domination by Louisiana’s social and economical elite. The building still remains the tallest state capitol in the United States, but over the years, the Indiana limestone exterior required cleaning and restoration. Working with long-standing capitol architect, Charles E. Schwing, extensive research and careful implementation provided the most appropriate methods to restore the limestone.

- 2006 – 2014. The mechanical system, added in 1949, required a complete $34 million overhaul.

- 2013 – present. Currently, a complete reconditioning and refurbishing of the exterior limestone cladding is underway.
