The Wyoming Capitol is closed to the public during the restoration project. The Wyoming Capitol Square Project centers on the restoration of the Capitol, which is a National Historic Landmark, and includes the rehabilitation of the adjacent Herschler Building. This complex multi-year project will preserve the historic character of the Capitol, improve public access to the political process, and address needed life safety and building systems deficiencies.
Wyoming Contractor Participation
Since signing the guaranteed maximum price (GMP) in July 2016, JE Dunn Construction, the construction manager at risk (CMAR), has been soliciting bids from Wyoming, regional and national subcontractors for all phases of the work. As of December 20, 2016, contractors residing in Wyoming have received 43 percent of the value of the subcontracts associated with the Wyoming Capitol Square Project. The dollar value of subcontracts awarded to Wyoming contractors totals $66 million out of the total $154 million awarded to subcontractors at this point. If contracts requiring expertise in historic restoration specialty trades are removed, then 54 percent of the value of the subcontracts have gone to contractors residing in Wyoming.
