Daniel J. Keating was selected as the General Contractor for the comprehensive renovation of the historically landmarked 150,000 square foot New Jersey Capital Executive State House.
Built in 1792, it is the third-oldest state house in continuous legislative use in the United States and the most historic public building in the state of New Jersey. The Senate, General Assembly, Governor and several state government departments continue to occupy offices located in the building. Over the years, the building has undergone numerous renovations and expansions but its infrastructure has deteriorated due to its age and lack of maintenance.
The renovation project included replacing the building’s electrical, plumbing, and mechanical systems, as well as repairing and restoring its stone foundations and stucco façade, roof, exterior gold leaf cladded dome and cupola, interior rotunda, and windows. The construction included a complete interior office fit out for various state departments housed in the building and modern amenities. The renovation made the building more energy-efficient, improved its accessibility, and enhanced its safety and security features.
The restoration of this historic building not only enhances its functionality but also preserved its cultural and architectural significance for generations to come. The project represents a commitment to the state’s heritage and a vision for a modern and sustainable future.
