In 1992, Crenshaw Lighting modified the very large pendants which had illuminated First Presbyterian Church Greensboro's main sanctuary since the early part of the 20th century. Four turret style outrigger fixture heads were created new to match the original fixture bodies to provide more lighting in the sanctuary.

In 1992, Crenshaw Lighting modified the very large pendants which had illuminated First Presbyterian Church Greensboro’s main sanctuary since the early part of the 20th century. Four turret style outrigger fixture heads were created new to match the original fixture bodies to provide more lighting in the sanctuary. These were installed onsite.

In 2013, Crenshaw restored these pendants again, this time by updating the body lamping to long life linear fluorescent, and adding a very large gallery skirt to each pendant which was fitted with aimable halogen spotlights. The gallery skirts were designed and finished so as to appear original to the fixture. The lamping selected by the design team would provide relatively long lamp life, greatly improved light levels and light quality in the space, while still accommodating project budgets.

The historic exterior lighting and a number of smaller interior historic fixtures were also restored by Crenshaw. Additionally, a large number of modified Crenshaw St. Dunstan’s ceiling fixtures and wall sconces were fabricated new for the large complex of buildings that makes up the church campus. Photographs of the installation are expected in 2014.
