By Rick M. Green, Capitol BureauThe state has selected a Kansas City, Mo.-based company to perform up to $25 million in repairs to the exterior of the nearly century-old Oklahoma Capitol, including re-mortaring and better anchoring massive limestone blocks that form the building’s facade.
JE Dunn Construction, which has experience in renovating state capitols, was selected over two in-state contenders for the project, state Office of Management and Enterprise Services Director Preston Doerflinger said Monday.
“The Capitol is our front door to the world, and we’re confident this partnership will help make us as proud of it today as we were when it opened nearly a century ago,” he said.
The contract is to be awarded early next year after the state receives proceeds from a bond sale.
