Kansas Statehouse Recognized at 2014 AIA CSR Design Awards

2014-10-27 Posted By: Patty Weaver

Treanor Architects’ Kansas Statehouse preservation and restoration project was recognized at the AIA Central States Design Awards with the 2014 Architecture Preservation Honor Award.

The jurors were quoted in the awards program as saying: “The transformation shown is extraordinary and reflective not just of restoring, but of having to undo an earlier renovation that departed substantially from the original intent of the building. The vast change shown is incredible.”

Congratulations to the State of Kansas and all those who worked on the project!

Kansas Statehouse Wins 2014 NACIA Award

2014-10-10

Yesterday, the State of Kansas, JE Dunn Construction and Treanor Architects were presented the North American Copper in Architecture award for their work on the replacement of the Kansas Statehouse's copper roof and dome.

The Kansas Statehouse was among only 14 projects in North America to be acknowledged for the use of architectural copper and copper alloys.

 “The Kansas Statehouse is a magnificent architectural piece of U.S. history,” said Larry Peters, project manager and architectural application specialist for the Copper Development Association. “It’s wonderful to see copper playing such a vital role in its preservation. While the original dome and roof had served the building well for more than a century, the new copper system will ensure the building is protected for another 100 years.”

The award was presented by Peter's who represented the Copper Development Association and the Canadian Copper & Brass Development Association (CCBDA), the organizations who sponsor the awards program.
