Case Study:

Civic Opera Building


Chicago, IL


Archistoric preformed restoration and retrofit services on twenty-two exterior wall sconces on the Civic Opera building. The restoration included metal repair or replacement of all ornamental castings, replacement of lower and upper oval perforated panels with new laser cut panels, repair work to metal backplate frame, and replacement of all acrylic panels. Archistoric also provided lighting retrofit services that improved the energy efficiency by using T5 linear fluorescent lamps, while increasing light output improving overall illumination in the building’s exterior portico.
