  State officials have revived a project to renovate Building 3 at the Capitol Complex.

The renovation was put on the back burner after a bid opening in 2011 came in more than $6 million over the project's $27 million budget.

The Department of Administration began a redesign of the project in January. Administration Secretary Ross Taylor says the project should go out to bid early next year and be completed in late 2016.

The Charleston Gazette reports that Taylor gave an update on the project Tuesday to an interim legislative committee.

The eight-story structure is known as the DMV building because the Division of Motor Vehicles formerly was located there for several decades.

Taylor says first floor's marble lobby and former DMV customer service windows will be preserved.
