Bob Banghart has a simple mantra for anyone who asks about the new State Library, Archives and Museum.
“On schedule, on budget,” he said. “I mean, I’ve had people come up to me on the street and say, ‘On schedule, on budget?’ and I’m like, ‘That’s it!’”
Being able to say that isn’t a small accomplishment. Adjusted for inflation, the $138.4 million building taking shape on a $2 million plot of land along Whittier Street is Juneau’s most costly capital project since the completion of the State Office Building.
