Capitol West Wing Weatherproofing
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The project proposes the California Department of General Services to repair windows and doors and improve the weatherproofing of all the exterior windows and doors of the West wing of the Capitol Building due to poor condition. For the windows, the project will provide needed maintenance on the materials and improve energy efficiency and operability by repairing wood sashes and adding weatherstripping between the sashes and jambs to reduce rattling and air infiltration. In addition, new clear film will also be added to the glazing for safety, security, energy savings from heat rejection and occupant comfort through glare rejection. The doors are in overall fair condition and exhibit minor cracks, open joints, weathered wood and hardware finish, gaps at thresholds, and a detached door closer. They require typical maintenance such as wood repairs; wood refinishing; and hardware cleaning, refinishing, and lubrication. For the doors on the west elevation, the project will add weatherstripping at the head and jambs, and thresholds will be replaced to reduce the air gaps created by wear to the existing thresholds.
