Nebraska State Capitol

The Nebraska State Capitol, located in Lincoln, is the third capitol to be constructed.  The first State Capitol was construction in 1967 as a 2-story building which crumbled due to poor construction and inferior building stone.  The second Capitol was completed in 1888 and suffered the fate of poor construction and structural settling.  The third and current State Capitol building, began construction in 1922 and completed in 1932 at a cost of $10 million.  The Capitol has four interior courtyards, a square base of 437 feet and is three levels in height.  From the center of the base is a 400 foot domed tower, crowned with a 19 foot tall bronze figure of The Sower. 

VDA provided preliminary evaluation services for the four (4) primary gearless traction elevators that serve the State Capitol Building.
