Georgia State Capitol

Georgia State Capitol

Atlanta, GA

The State established the Commission on the Preservation of the State Capitol, which was tasked with planning for the preservation of the Georgia State Capitol, a National Historic Landmark.

The Commission set the tone for all work to come, determining that the Capitol should remain a working Capitol, the center of Georgia's government. It challenged the design team to restore the building fabric to its original appearance in so far as possible, while rehabilitating the building to serve today's demands in its role as a major public facility. Lord Aeck Sargent has been involved with an ongoing phased rehabilitation of the Capitol since 1993.

Through many phases of work, LAS has met that goal, consistently creating both historically accurate and highly functional solutions. Specific projects include Fire Code Rehabilitation, HABS Documentation, Master Planning, Public Space Restoration, House and Senate Chamber Restoration, Legislative Budget Office Rehabilitation, exterior restoration and lighting, roof replacement and replacement of the switchgear mechanical system.
