American Artisans At Work Preserving History

Restoring History At Oklahoma City’s Iconic Skyscraper

Congratulations to the successful renovation of the First National Center, Oklahoma City’s most iconic, historic skyscraper. The building was constructed in 1931 by the First National Bank and Trust Company of Oklahoma City and contains 33 floors at 446 feet tall. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2018.

Grand Light partnered with Texas-based electrical contractor, Prism Electric, to remove and restore the large interior chandeliers and pendants located inside the renowned “Great Banking Hall”.

Numerous historic chandeliers, pendant lights, and exterior lights from the project were carefully disassembled, soda/vapor blasted, and hand cleaned with proprietary pewter cleaning solutions. Multiple applications of a UV resistant protective lacquer coating of all steel and brass components was applied.

The building was recently reopened after five years of renovations including the preservation and redevelopment of historic space into a 146-room Marriott Autograph Collection hotel, restaurants, bars, and apartments.

The beautifully restored original pewter finish is truly a sight to behold and we hope that First National Center community, residents, patrons, and guests will enjoy these truly unique fixtures for decades to come!
