STATE OFFICE BUILDING
Historic Building
St. Paul, Minnesota

The renovation, upgrading, and expansion of this historic state capitol area office facility occurred while the building remained in phased use.

The building’s usable space increased from 200,000 SF to 300,000 SF. Ten new legislative hearing rooms were added, and fire and accessibility code revisions occurred as well as completely new mechanical, HVAC and electrical systems. There are 1,500 people who use this building, and it is entirely accessible.

All changes to the interior and the exterior met with state and federal guidelines for historic places.
