The renovation of 133 State Street involved transforming a 100,000-square-foot building that is listed on the State Register of Historic Places and located adjacent to the Vermont State House. The project focused on the interior, including the restoration of historic spaces and the implementation of new mechanical and electrical systems.
Key aspects of the renovation included the restoration of a two-story state meeting room, auditorium, public lobbies, and corridors. Additionally, the project encompassed various interior renovations such as updating bathrooms, finishes, doors and hardware, and restoring decorative plasterwork, marble, and woodwork. The building’s elevators were replaced, and necessary work was carried out to ensure compliance with ADA and building codes.
The project also involved the installation of automatic sprinkler systems and data, fire alarm, phone, and CATV systems. Furthermore, the building’s MEP (mechanical, electrical, plumbing) systems were replaced, and extensive interior renovations were made to accommodate office, meeting, and function spaces for multiple state departments. The project was executed in phases over several years, allowing partial owner occupancy throughout the construction process.
