1 State of Wyoming Capitol Upgrades and Renovation projects Photos of the skylight and lighting project will be shown in chronological order, followed by photos of the Room 302 remodel. They will be updated throughout the 2008 interim as work progresses in Wyoming’s State Capitol.

2 Skylight & Lighting Project In 1997, HDH Associates provided a condition report to the Wyoming Department of Administration and Information (A&I) about weaknesses in the wire glass panels in the pyramidal skylights set in metal frames above the stained glass in the Senate and House of Representatives Chambers. The removal of the wire glass and installation of a new copper roof system was recommended. A&I implemented the HDH recommendations and chose to eliminate the skylights in the cupolas and replace that area with the new copper roof system. In 2002, the Wyoming Legislature’s Joint Appropriations Committee requested a cost estimate from A&I to restore natural sunlight in the House and Senate Chambers. In 2004, the Select Committee on Legislative Facilities was tasked to study the options for reopening the skylights in the House and Senate Chambers to sunlight and contracted with Hefferan Partnership Lighting Design to conduct a feasibility study. Based on this study, during the 2007 General Session, the Wyoming Legislature appropriated $1,200,000 for lighting and skylight renovation in the Senate and House Chambers. Edwards Construction of Cheyenne was awarded the contract by A&I, and LSO contracted with architect Glenn Garrett to design and install the skylights and update the lighting in the Chambers, which will restore natural light to the Chambers and better illuminate the stained glass. The project is expected to be completed by early fall of 2008.

3 The skylights are a result of many months of planning and hard work by the many parties involved in the project.

4 (View facing West; April 2, 2008) The copper shown here, above the Senate Chamber, will be removed and replaced with a new skylight system.

5 (View facing East; April 2, 2008) Natural light will mean the difference between “night and day” in the House Chamber once the new skylight system is installed this summer.

6 (Senate Chamber; April 9, 2008) The Senators’ desks have been covered with plastic in the Senate Chamber to protect them from dust and debris that may fall during the skylight installation and lighting upgrades.

7 (House of Representatives Chamber; April 9, 2008) The Representatives’ desks have also been covered with plastic in the House Chamber to protect them from dust and debris that may fall during the skylight installation and lighting upgrades.
