Probe work removal at the State Capitol reveals historic paint and crown molding

In late October, probe work explored existing conditions in the Wyoming Capitol to accurately reflect those conditions on the construction drawings and for design purposes. This work is critical to the overall design and success of the restoration of the Capitol. Ceiling tile and ceiling/wall plaster were removed in different areas on all floor levels. These probes will remain open for future investigation by the design team except those areas directly over desks. *​Part of the ceiling was removed in the Governor's conference room, revealing higher ceilings and crown molding. h/t Capitol Square Project/Pitchengine Communities* JE Dunn Construction with the Capitol Square Design Team will conduct an assessment of the exterior stone masonry, beginning Monday, November 16 through Friday, November 20. This assessment will take place along all exterior elevations of the building and will include an overall review of each façade from the ground and a detailed close-up examination of the stone masonry in multiples location around the building from an aerial boom lift. The intent of the thorough assessment to help facilitate the final replacement stone criteria.This exterior investigation will be minimally invasive and will not disrupt normal business activities. In the event that an entrance is temporarily closed due to overhead observation of the stone masonry signage will be posted directing occupants to the nearest exit. *feature photo: Probe work removed ceiling tiles in the Governor's Portrait gallery on the first floor of the Capitol.
