MN State Capitol Restoration Project


The MN State Capitol is undergoing a major renovation. This is the first time any renovations have been completed on the Capitol since it was constructed in 1905. The MN State Capitol Restoration Project is a $300 million project that has been scheduled to take over three years to complete. The project began in the fall of 2013 and is scheduled to end in 2017.

For the 378,825 square foot Capitol building, KENDELL has created over 600 pieces of custom hardware for new doors. For existing doors, the hardware was cleaned and polished to return it to its original state.
