Department of Management Services Florida House & Senate Garage Repairs

Florida’s Capitol Complex, located in Tallahassee, FL, includes a 22-story executive tower with domed House and Senate chambers. The Historic Capitol, built in 1902, is directly in front of the tower to the east, with the House and Senate chambers to its north and south.  In addition, there are three separate parking garages located underground on the complex and three state parks on the grounds of the Capitol Complex.

The New York firm of Edward Durell Stone & Associates designed the Capitol Complex in cooperation with Reynolds, Smith and Hill of Jacksonville. The first phase of the new Capitol Complex started in June 1970 with site preparation of the House and Senate’s five-story office buildings. These buildings were designed to provide legislative committee rooms and member offices.

Ajax and Hoy+Stark Architects were hired by DMS to renovate and provide upgrades to the Senate and House of Representative parking garages and also the State Parks above the garages. Read more in this article from the Tallahassee Democrat
