When it comes to metalwork and architectural restoration, one of our most diligent and professional partners is Grand Light in Seymour, CT.
They recently brought us a number of large, ballroom chandeliers for dry abrasive blasting. The fixtures were part of a much larger Hotel Syracuse lighting restoration project that Grand Light had undertaken.
The chandeliers had 27 arms each with multiple bands (75 lights each). The diameter on these beautiful grand ladies is six feet, arm to arm.
Grand Light worked on more than just crystal-encrusted chandeliers. Ryan Stockman and his team have been consulting and working with the GCs since June 2015 to complete work on lobby, ballroom, terrace lighting fixtures. These included sconces, flush mounts and chandeliers. This was an extensive job of researching, logistics, wiring, coating, packaging, transportation and much more.
