Restoration In Oklahoma – First National Center Project Launches

The First National Center, formerly known as First National Bank Building, is a prominent mixed-use skyscraper located in downtown Oklahoma City. The building was constructed in 1931 by the First National Bank and Trust Company of Oklahoma City and contains 33 floors at 446 feet (136 m) tall. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2018.

Grand Light has removed and will restore the large interior chandeliers and pendants located inside the renowned “Great Banking Hall”.

Our specialists utilized a combination of lifts, scaffolding, rigging, and ladders to disassemble twenty massive cast brass chandeliers and pendants, many weighing over 300lbs and over 6ft tall. All existing fixtures were thoroughly photographed and documented prior and during disassembly.

Our on-site team carefully removed, packed, and safely transported all fixtures over 1500 miles from Oklahoma City to Grand Light’s Lighting Restoration Factory located in Seymour, Connecticut.

During our factory evaluation, all on-site documentation and in-factory sampling will be analyzed by our team of engineers with the findings submitted to the design team for review. Detailed profile drawings are also created for use in representing how components fit together, highlight existing damages/deficiencies, and map electrical connections.
