Guide to the Maintenance Survey:


The survey is broken down into three volumes:
- volume 1 contains the analysis information
- volume 2 contains the photographs
- volume 3 contains additional information from sources other
than the work of the maintenance survey team


Volume 1 is divided into four chapters; a historical chapter,
an interior survey chapter, and exterior survey chapter, and
an appendix chapter.
The historical chapter contains a brief history of the
capitol taken from a report by archives and history contained
in volume 3. This chapter has photographs of the succesive
stages of the capitol and is followed with a series of old
photographs of the capitol at various times in its history.
The interior survey chapter is sub-divided according
to floor levels (ground, first, and second floors) which are
again sub-divided according to 1902 spaces., Each space is
designated with a number: 02:B01 room number
1902 space floor level
Each 1902 space is made up of existing spaces whcih are also
designated by a number in parenthesis:
(B01) existing space
floor level room number
The 1902 room number will not be the same number as the existing
room number since there are more existing spaces than 1902
spaces, 02:B01 (B01, B01.1, B01.2, B01.3, B02)
Each 1902 space is then discussed in three sections, with a
page for each section. The first page contains an existing
floor plan (which is shaded to designate the particular 1902
space to be discussed), the 1902 and existing room number
designations, and a discussion of the evolution of the space
from the date of its existence up to the present (1978). The
second page contains written descriptions or statements of the
anachronistic construction in that 1902 space. The anachronis-
tic construction is broken down into finishes, windows, doors,






and an additional comment sections. The third page contains
written descriptions or statements of the construction remain-
ing from the period 1845 to 1902. The remaining construction:
1845-1902 is also broken down into finishes, windows, doors,
and additional comment sections. The information in these
pages was taken from the charts in the appendix chapter.
Also on the anachronistic and remaining construction pages are
numbers in the left margin which correspond to the statement
directly to the right in the written descriptions and also
corresponds to the numbered photographs in volume 2.
The exterior survey chapter is divided in three sections;
facade survey, front portico survey, and a dome survey. The
facade survey is broken down into eight sections with each
section corresponding to a particular part of the entire
building facade. The exterior survey deals only with the
east and west facades since the north and south facades are
inaccessible because of later additions. The windows are
designated with a 1902 number as well as a corresponding
existing number. 02:209a (213.2A) All 1902 openings are
designated regardless if they are infilled today. The portico
survey contains a written description of the existing conditions
and materials of the front, east, portico. The dome survey
contains a written description of the existing conditions and
materials on the interior and the exterior of the cupola, dome,
drum and the base. There also are numbers in the left margin
which correspond to the statements written directly to the
right of the number and also correspond to the photographs
in volume 2.
The appendix chapter contains the charts and a set of the
existing drawings. The chapter is divided into three sections
according to floor level. Each floor level has a chart on
the finishes, windows, and doors with the additional comment
section being contained within each chart. The finish chart
room numbers correspond to the existing room numbers in the
parenthesis on the first page of the particular 1902 space.
The window and door numbers use the existing room number as a
prefix with a letter designation following it; B01A. The


___^^___






The letter designates which door or window in that particular
space is being surveyed. The windows are designated from left
to right within each space with the left being 'A', as though
you walked into the space and were facing the exterior wall.
The doors are also designated from left to right around the
room with the door through which you would enter being the
letter'A'. Each existing window number has a corresponding
1902 number which is reffered to in the window sections of the
anachronistic and remaining construction sections and is also
used extensively in the exterior facade survey section. The
doors do not have a corresponding 1902 number since very few
of the doors are significant.


Volume 2 is divided into two chapters, an interior and an
exterior survey. The interior survey is divided into three
sections according to floor levels and corresponds to chapter
2 of volume 1 (interior survey). The exterior survey is
divided into three sections; facades, portico and dome and it
corresponds to chapter 3 of volume 1 (exterior survey).


Volume 3 contains additional supplementary information from
various sources connected with the state capitol.

CAPITOL HISTORY


'X,


*'


p% (


-a-.__







The State of Florida has two capitols: a new capitol

completed in 1977-78, and a historic capitol completed in 1845

with major additions in 1902, 1923, 1936, and 1947.

The 1845 capitol was a three-storied structure (a first.

and second floor with a raised basement), rectangular in shape,

150 5/12 feet long by 52 5/12 feet wide at the ground level.

The major axis of the building ran north and south. The ent-

rances on the east and west sides were through Doric porticos

with six plain columns. The brick exterior was covered with

concrete scored to look like stone blocks. The ridge roof

was slate and the stairs were made of wood. The building was

painted white, inside and out. This capitol served without

major alteration for the rest of the century.

By 1900 the continuing need for space had become a serious

problem. In 1901 the Legislature decided to expand the capitol

rather than erect a new one. Frank P. Milburn of Columbia,

South Carolina was chosen to execute the design. He added

wings to the north and south which complemented the existing

portion. Metal sheetwork depicting the elements of the state

seal was placed in the pediments of the east and west porticos.

He tied the old and new together with the elaborate classical

revival detailing of the dentiled cornice, brackets under the

eaves and a roof balastrade. But the greatest change came

with the large dome placed atop the center of the capitol.

The dome was sheathed in copper and allowed to weather. Its

base was painted white in keeping with the color of the build-

ing. The grounds were landscaped and the interior repaired

and remodelled. The chambers of the House and Senate were

moved into the new wings. A rotunda was created by cutting a

large opening between the first and second floors.

In 1921 the capitol was again enlarged under the direction

of a Florida architect, Henry j. Klutho of Jacksonville.

Klutho added east and west wings which increased the usable

space by 80% and necessitated the destruction of the east and

west porticos. But, the old front was reproduced as near as

possible on the east wing. A carriageway was created under

the east portico. The interior was entirely refurbished and

rearranged. Marble Wainscoting was added to the main corridors

and a grand marble staircase to the west replaced the original

monumental stair.

A new wing was added to the northern end of the capitol

in 1936, designed by M. Leo Elliott, a Tampa architect. The

1936 wing was used in part for chambers of the House of Rep-

resentatives.

The Senate moved into new chambers in 1947 when the wing

to the south was completed, designed by the firm of Hadley

and Atkinson of St. Petersburg.

Since 1947 there have been no major structural additions

to the historic capitol. The interior dome and the rotunda

have been closed over, but the main public areas on the first

and second floors have been left largely intact.

The new portion of the Capitol Complex, three buildings

linked by a colonade, is situated around the perimeter of the

historic capitol on the northern, southern and western sides.

Constructed of formed concrete relieved uy vertical windows

with louvered exterior blinds, the materials and proportions

are new; however, the ordered rhythm and symmetry of the design

are classic. Construction of new office buildings for the -

Senate and the House of Representatives to the north and south

of the old structure, was completed in 1973. Construction of

the twenty-two story tower and its flanking five story wings

for the House and Senate Chambers was completed in 1977.

Evolution of space:


This space is part of the 1902 addition and originally
was the Drainage Department. There were no changes during
the 1923 addition. A metal stair was added later, a major
corridor wall to the east was added, and the original steps
descending into the space from the corridor to the north
were changed to a ramp in the new corridor. These changes
possible occurred during the 1947 addition. The partitions
dividing up the space were also added after 1923 and the
function changed to Secretary of State offices, a telephone
switch room, an airhandling closet and a stairwell.

-In the original 1845 building, space 105 was probably
occupied by the treasurer. In 1902 it was partitioned
off but was still considered part of the treasurer's
office. In 1923, the space was reinforced with steel
plates and it was utilized as a vault. Presently, the
space has been converted into HVAC.
