Installed Fixtures at MN State Capitol Building

We were in Minneapolis/Saint Paul recently and had a chance to see some of our work installed in the beautifully renovated Minnesota State Capitol. Once fixtures leave our shop floor, we don’t often get to see the finished product installed in person. So when we have to the opportunity to visit a space with our work present, we jump on it!

Wyoming State Capitol Fixture

Summer 2018 Shop Update

With over 700 fixtures being either restored or re-created, the Wyoming State Capitol Building project is in full swing at the Crenshaw shops. We were awarded this exceptional project and challenged to not only replicate some of the fixtures but to also restore and retrofit them for LED lights, increasing efficiency and performance while keeping the aesthetics historically accurate.

The chandelier and the stained glass lay light were moved to another location in the Capitol in the 1970s when this Chamber was divided into two floors. They have been returned to their original location in the Supreme Court Chamber.

Crenshaw Standard LED

Crenshaw Standard LED Systems

We are really excited about our LED pendant systems. We weren’t willing to settle for equal to or less than compact fluorescent and incandescent performance from LED. At 17,000 lumens, our 2ft high pendant LED assembly is a full 30% brighter than the standard compact fluorescent option for a similar size fixture, and more than 200% brighter than traditional incandescent. Similar comparisons can be […]

FEMA Replication

April 2018 Shop Update

We were honored with the opportunity to recreate this pendant for the FEMA campus in Emmitsburg, MD. As the original fixture was hand-made of plaster in 1891, the replication process posed some unique challenges and extreme care was taken to avoid further degradation of the original material. The original components were carefully disassembled and painstakingly repaired before being used to create molds for all new cast resin components…
