In April, 2014, representatives from Robert A. M. Stern Architects, Virginia Theological Seminary, Whiting-Turning Construction Co., and Advance Project Management, convened at Crenshaw to review the decorative lighting Crenshaw was to build for the newly remodeled and restored Virginia Theological Seminary. The smaller types included a family of solid brass pendants, sconces, and ceiling fixtures finished in a beautiful dark oil-rubbed bronze finish, and a Gothic style lantern pendant and sconce finished in Swedish Iron. All of the fixtures were inspected for the finer points of form, function, and finish quality.
Review at our facility allowed for a great ease and flexibility that would not be present were fixtures reviewed at any other location: mounting on winches facilitated easy management of heavy fixtures, as well as raising and lowering for review at different vantage points. Alternate lens materials were explored, as well as other construction options, which was made easy due to the close proximity of the full resources of our production facility. We enjoy hosting clients and specifiers for this very reason, and very much enjoyed this group.
