Juneau architect, Wayne Jensen, will present on the construction of the Alaska Capitol as part of the Friends of the Juneau-Douglas City Museum’s Annual Meeting on November 29th, 2018.
Jensen’s presentation will feature historic drawings and photos of the original planning, design and construction of the Alaska Capitol building from 1912 through the grand opening in 1931. It will also include information and photos of the recent exterior renovation project. The recent project involved several years of planning and 4 years of construction from 2014 through 2017. The project reinforced the structure of the building for earthquakes and replaced the exterior envelope to improve energy efficiency and restore the historic character of the building. The construction cost for the original building was $1 million, and the construction cost for the renovation was $36 million.

He has been involved in over 30 renovation and remodel projects in the Alaska Capitol including the recently completed Seismic Retrofit and Exterior Renovation. Wayne also has been involved in many other historic renovation projects, including work on the Alaska Governor’s House. He has an interest in history and is a member of several historic societies. In 2014 he was appointed by the Governor to the Alaska Historical Commission.
