  • Good Morning, I’m Gary Daniel, the communications liaison for the Idaho State Capitol Commission, I’m hear today to briefly speak with you about the largest project of its kind in Idaho history. Please return to Gary A. Daniel Idaho Capitol Commission Communications Liaison 208-332-1867 208-850-4617
  • The state of Idaho, guided by the Division of Public Works has hired Jacobson-Hunt Construction of Salt Lake City to lead an $80MM Statehouse restoration They have also hired McAlvain Construction of Boise to design and build expanded governmental meeting space underneath the grounds of the existing Idaho Capitol This computer rendering on the screen illustrates the minimal visual impact of underground wings as part of the Capitol Restoration and Expansion. The Idaho State Building Authority has issued $130 million in revenue bonds.

The Idaho State Building Authority has issued $130 million in revenue bonds.
  • The original core of the Idaho State Capitol is over 100 years old. Yet every square foot of this state’s most historic structure is contemporary work space for the on-going operations of Idaho government. It is Idaho’s irreplaceable treasure--in the words of its original architect “a monument before the world truly representing the spirit of her commonwealth.”
  • 1st pic: Concrete stairs have deteriorated in several locations which presents a tripping hazard. It allows the penetration of moisture into the structure below. 2nd pic: The paint on most windows is peeling. The extent of deterioration varies with exposure and location.
  • 1st pic: Exfoliated granite was observed under the entry stair pavilions. In the most extreme case, approximately 1/2 inch of stone has exfoliated. 2nd pic: Numerous types of lichen and algae grow on most horizontal wall surfaces, and portions of the cornice and parapet. An unintended consequence of this is destruction of the sandstone’s surface integrity.
  • 1st pic: Floors throughout the Capitol building are comprised of 3 different marbles from 3 different locations. The gray patterned marble is from Alaska, the red stone is from Georgia and the black stone is from Italy. 2nd pic: Columns currently show signs of aging, displaying hairline cracks in various degrees of severity. The columns in the House (shown) and Senate chambers appear to have more cracks than the columns in the rotunda.
  • 1st pic: Most plaster elements above lay-in ceilings have been severely damaged by the installation of mechanical, electrical and ceiling systems. Upper portions of the wood casings have also been damaged by the installation of lay-in ceilings. 2nd pic: Decorative woodwork and paneling can be found throughout the building. Some of the original woodwork has been refinished and some has been replaced. Various portions of the House Caucus Room have a poor re-finished appearance. Most woodwork is in good condition. 3rd pic: The existing brick walls on the 5th floor (shown) above the Statuary have been autographed by various occupants over the years and serve as a historic record of the building's use. Consideration should be given to preserving the condition of the brick walls.
  • 1st pic: Data and telecommunications systems, equipment, cabling, wiring and panels have been installed in former light shafts, elevator shafts or other "found" spaces throughout the building. 2nd pic: Initial installation and relocation of data and telecommunications systems cabling has been randomly placed and, when abandoned, left in place.
  • The Idaho Capitol has served the citizenry as a completely functional Capitol for over three generations, but to it needs upgrades in all these areas shown here. For example, the lack of a fire sprinkler system hampered fire fighting efforts in 1992 when a trash can fire destroyed most of the Attorney General’s suite second floor suite.
  • The remaining bond backing, repaid with funds from an increase in Idaho Cigarette tax will pay for a state of the art expansion, hardly noticeable from this illustration. The Permanent Building Fund Advisory Council recently echoed the Idaho State Capitol Commission’s following reasons for restoring the state Capitol: Restore and Refinish Windows Repair Marble Flooring repair decorative plaster restore wood floors refinish wood doors and restore hardware replace/refurbish light fixtures upgrade electrical complete smoke and fire detection system install fire sprinkler system throughout improve exterior lighting add emergency power generator install new HVAC system replace sewer piping replace hot water system improve exiting from basement provide vertical circulation cores from the Legislative chambers level to the new garden-level wings safer access to roof domes add egress hardware provide accessible toilet rooms install accessible elevator (gurney size)
  • The population of the Idaho in 1920 (as seen in this rendering) was 432 thousand. The same exact Capitol now serves 1.5 million.
  • Quoting from a January 2007 eye witness account printed in the Idaho Spokeman-Review, “People are spilling out both doorways from the House State Affairs Committee this morning as it holds a public hearing on vote-by-mail legislation.”
  • “ Meanwhile, the House Education Committee has a full house in the Gold Room for two resolutions dealing with recognizing American Sign Language coursework for foreign language credit and with the educational needs of the deaf and hard of hearing. Both of those resolutions won the education panel's unanimous support.”
  • Cost Effective and accessible government has always driven Statehouse design in Idaho. MOUSE/ The 1914 photograph shows the completion of phase one before both the House and Senate current chambers were added in 1920. The Capitol Commission originally considered additional above ground wings that would have expanded the current building over both east and west lawns. MOUSE/ This century’s anticipated $30MM underground expansion is more practical, fiscally viable, and modest in its approach.
  • Our design team consultant has provided a glimpse of what you may see as citizens participating in the legislative process at the future capitol. Most of the space on each side of the Capitol is dedicated to enhanced public hearing space.
  • You can barely notice atrium glass as you see the Capitol west lawn.
  • Governor Otter and much of his staff will move too the Borah building which Idaho received earlier this decade from the federal government. Lt. Governor Risch and his staff will join him there. Attorney General Wasden and his senior staff will use available office space in the JR Williams building just across State Street. The Secretary of State’s staff will spread between office space in the Borah building and the Idaho State Library. The Idaho Senate, and House will conduct the next two legislative sessions in the old Ada County Courthouse, which we now refer to as the Capitol Annex.

  • Members of the Idaho Capitol Commission are leaders from all corners of Idaho who contribute various professional skills that come together in their shared passion for executing the nation’s best Capitol master plan and a working Capitol for the citizens of Idaho for another 100 years.
  • The Idaho Capitol Commission MISSION is to develop and implement a comprehensive, CLICK evolving Master Plan for the CLICK restoration, refurbishment, and preservation of the Idaho State Capitol Building and its grounds, CLICK along with a Funding Program that combines public and private funds to implement the Master Plan.
  • The Idaho State Capitol, one of the state's most renowned landmarks, is a unique public monument that captures the spirit of Idaho's citizens and symbolizes Idaho's sovereignty. CLICK The Commission's vision is to restore the Capitol to its original splendor. CLICK By maintaining the Capitol's historical character, the Commission CLICK will preserve its legacy for Idaho's citizens and for future generations.
  • Sales of the Capitol Restoration License Plate are going strong. You can find more information at any branch of the Department of Motor Vehicles or the Capitol Commission web site, shown on the next slide.
  • Thank you for your attention, do you have any questions?
  • Support Slide This legislation included House Concurrent Resolution 47. It identified the need for: -restoration of the Idaho State Capitol building -high speed elevators at both the east and west ends of the building -state of the art hearing rooms -adjacent committee and staff office space -reassessment / reconfiguration of the restoration master plan Senate Bill 1491 also passed in 2006 to fund $5.9 million for the government’s continued operation during renovation of the Capitol Building. It tasked the Idaho Capitol Commission, Legislative Services, the Idaho State Historical Society, and the Idaho Department of Administration to plan and provide for relocation of the Legislature and numerous other state offices. The Idaho State Building Authority has $130 million available for the project as a result of the sale of State Building Revenue Bonds in the fall of 2006. However, Governor Otter’s proposed budget recommended the project focus solely on the Capitol Restoration Consequently, Legislative leadership and the Governor negotiated a compromise framework to the Capitol expansion reducing the size of the wings to one story, assigning Legislative offices to the first floor of the Capitol building. Our design team, working with the Division of Public Works, will identify project timelines and new cost estimates by the end of this month. The changes will require an update to our master plan. 2
