Cannon Renewal Project Updates

Below is the latest information on current work underway to renew the Cannon House Office Building during the Cannon Renewal Project.

Cannon Building Roof

In the Cannon Building's west wing, workers install structural steel for the rebuilding of the fifth floor.

A protective roof covering has been erected over the existing roof to help mitigate noise disturbances and provide a watertight seal during the demolition of the fifth floor. The west wing's entire fifth floor – including the walls and roof – have been dismantled. Crews have begun the process of rebuilding the fifth floor.

Phase 1

Phase 1 of the Cannon Renewal Project began in January 2017 and is scheduled to be complete in November 2018.

The entire west side of the building, from the basement to the fifth floor, is closed. Work includes demolishing and rebuilding the fifth floor, conserving the exterior stonework and rehabilitating the individual office suites.

Cannon Building Basement Rotunda Enclosed Walkway

An enclosed walkway is now located in the Cannon Building basement rotunda. The walkway allows the Cannon Renewal Project to perform construction work in the basement rotunda while also maintaining underground access to the U.S. Capitol and other House office buildings.

The enclosed walkway will remain in place for the duration of Phase 1, scheduled for completion in November 2018.
