Internal Revenue Service Headquarters stands as one of the earliest U.S. Government buildings of monumental scope located in Washington, DC erected from 1928 to 1936.
This majestic French Renaissance-style structure designed by Louis A. Simon, was established in order to consolidate all IRS functions to a single location. Being the most elaborate facility located within the Federal Triangle complex, The IRS Building represented the largest public building project to that point in American history.
Grand Light was given the task of restoring the exterior lanterns that are located on the IRS Headquarters. Each lantern was media blasted to remove all of the existing finish and a beautiful bronze powder coat finish was applied. All mechanical defects and missing parts were replicated to match the existing components and a new lamp configuration and polycarbonate lens were installed. All electrical components were replaced and rewired in accordance to UL standards.
