Client: Pennsylvania Dept. of General Services

As a joint venture with Graves Architects and Noble Preservation Services, PWWG facilitated the rehabilitation of the historic 1906 Main Capitol Building in Harrisburg for the Department of General Services. The project included all restoration, preservation, and conservation work needed to rehabilitate the roof, domes and cupolas, the masonry, the windows, and the exterior paving and steps. The cupola’s “Commonwealth” statue was restored and re-gilded, a task last accomplished in 1945.
