west virginia state capitol building #3 : charleston, wv
renaissance and renewal
Client: Department of General Services, State of West Virginia
The project breathed new life and purpose into one of the most prominent buildings on the WV Capitol campus, with preservation, restoration, and adaptive reuse of historic Building 3 as a modern, well-functioning and welcoming office space. The project deftly melds significant character defining historic features with the latest workplace amenities, celebrating the history and culture of West Virginia, while expressing in tangible form a vision for an optimistic future. In addition to architectural design, PWWG assisted the client with all of the services needed to successfully implement this project including: code and life safety compliance evaluations, feasibility evaluations, space programming, facilitating stakeholder involvement, coordinating complex MEP/FP system upgrades in an integrated process, and developing 3D visualizations of design options. The project will allow the state to localize staff back to the capitol campus, and allow them to enjoy modern amenities in a historic location.
