SERVICES: Historic Lighting Restoration

Royce Hall, an Italian Romanesque Revivial style building, was designed by Allison & Allison and built in 1929. It is one of the four original buildings on UCLA's Westwood campus and has come to be the defining image of the university as well as world reknowned performance venue due to its acclaimed acoustics and 6,600-pipe Skinner pipe organ.
The building was severly damaged during the 1994 Northridge Earthquake and underwent a $70 million renovation. We were asked to restore 12 interior foyer chandeliers and 9 exterior loggia chandeliers. All were stripped and restored to their original finish. They were also rewired and any broken lenses were replaced.
