Project Description

Formerly known as the Hall of Graduate Studies and built in 1932, Yale University’s Gothic-style Humanities Quadrangle Building, located at 320 York Street, New Haven CT, is home to 15 Faculty of Arts and Sciences departments, programs in the humanities, offices, meeting rooms, and study spaces for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars.

Grand Light specialist restored over 100 historic lighting fixtures, including large chandeliers, wall sconces, lanterns, pendant and ceiling lights. Our in-factory evaluations revealed that the majority of the fixtures had an original two-tone silver and black finish, which was not stable and had deteriorated. The Grand Light Team worked tirelessly to restore the original two-tone silver and black finishes, removing via media blast before hand application of a custom matching black finish with silver highlights.

All fixtures were rewired in accordance with UL standards.
