Built in the 1870’s, the State Capitol Building has served as the main hub of the state of Michigan for more than 140 years. The ornate sandstone façade has undergone multiple restoration projects to maintain its prominent presence in Lansing, Michigan.
RAM Construction Services partnered with The Christman Company and the Michigan State Capitol Commission on the $70 million mechanical and electrical infrastructure upgrade project. Our highly skilled masons have worked to rehabilitate the stairways at the north and south entrances to the building. The sandstone walls and limestone treads were removed to allow our waterproofing department to apply their hot fluid-applied waterproofing to the substructure. New stones are being furnished and installed to match the original design and a combination of mortar and sealant is being installed to bring the stairs to a water-tight finish. Once complete, the new mechanical and electrical infrastructure for the State Capitol will be made safe from the elements.
