Wisconsin State Capitol – Door Hardware
Our company was involved with the entire Wisconsin State Capitol Restoration and Rehabilitation project from its beginning in 1988 to its completion in 2001. We were responsible for cataloging, tracking, replicating, restoring, and repairing approximately 10,000 hardware items including door knobs, escutcheon plates, hinges, and the like. (Not to mention the same for more than 3,000 new and historic brass and brass-plated cast iron grilles.)
The reason that our company was an integral part of this restoration project was that our president pioneered and refined the proprietary finishing process. Although the details of this finish cannot be revealed, the resulting finish (and its 10-year guarantee) speaks for itself!
We also fabricated and installed all of the interior and exterior ramp railings at the Capitol. They were designed in the stately style indicative of the period in which Capitol was created. The rails comply with ADA while adding to the majesty of this remarkable building.
