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!
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.
Spring 2016 projects in the shop include flared wall sconces made of aluminum and steel for Barberton Magical Theater, Akron, OH, lantern pendants constructed of aluminum and steel with modular LED lamping for Coastal Carolina Residences, Myrtle Beach, SC, and restored cast metal oil-lamp chandeliers with frosted clear glass globes with floral and decorative patterns for Draper Valley Presbyterian, Draper, VA.
