JE Dunn Construction Company will start work on the Wyoming Capitol Square Project at 5 a.m. on Friday, July 14 and Saturday, July 15 to handle two large concrete pours to install the concrete slabs for the southward extension of the east wing of the Herschler Building. These slabs on floors 2, 3, and 4 will add nearly 20,000 square feet of usable space to the Herschler Building.

The two concrete pours cannot be viewed by the public as this is an active construction zone but we will share the photos of it via Facebook and Instagram.

We appreciate your patience as we complete this phase of the project. Similar to previous concrete pours, the operation must occur without city traffic interfering with the delivery of concrete.  Please direct questions related to the construction work and special work hours to JE Dunn Construction Company at (307) 275-0123.

Timing of the Pours

On both Friday and Saturday, crews and equipment will begin arriving on site at 5 a.m.with the concrete pours beginning at 6 a.m. One concrete pump truck will be utilized for these pours with several concrete trucks on and around the site at all times. Construction noise and congestion will be present in the neighborhood throughout the morning and afternoon.

  Rebar has been put on the slabs on the 2, 3, and 4 floors of the Herschler in preparation for the concrete pour. These slabs on floors 2, 3, and 4 will add nearly 20,000 square feet of usable space to the Herschler Building.

Herschler Remodel and Expansion

The addition of new mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems, new elevators, and more restrooms has decreased office space in the Capitol. The Herschler Building, due to its proximity to the Capitol, is being renovated and expanded to accommodate these displaced space needs. The exterior of the Herschler Building is being replaced to addresses major maintenance issues, including water infiltration, corrosion, wall gaps, and rotting window blocks. 

Replacing the deteriorating exterior provides the opportunity to enlarge the footprint of the building 15 feet over existing slab foundations that used to hold planting beds, which leaked into the underground garage and needed to be removed. The needed replacement of the exterior building envelope and the availability of existing foundations provide the opportunity to expand the building by approximately 56,000 square feet. Learn more..
