Whitesboro, New York—Early in the summer of 2016, the Whitesboro Central School District engaged Yorkville, NY-based Meyda Lighting to execute a custom restoration lighting project. The plan was to repair and restore the lighting fixtures in Whitesboro’s Middle School Auditorium and convert them to efficient LED lamping for significant energy and maintenance cost savings.
According to Kevin Storsberg, Director of Facilities III for the Whitesboro Central School District, “The challenge was to retrofit the lighting fixtures with energy efficient components while maintaining the traditional historical aesthetic that fits the overall look of the middle school auditorium.”
Meyda restored six chandeliers and two sconces from the Middle School auditorium, which was originally built in 1936. The glass was replaced with stunning Crème Carrare Idalight diffusers and the fixtures were rewired and replaced with LEDs (light emitting diodes) to meet UL and cUL standards.
“By retrofitting the new chandeliers and wall sconces with LEDs, the Whitesboro Central School District will save over $75,000 in energy and maintenance costs over the next 20 years,” according to Max Cohen, Director of Hospitality Marketing for Meyda Lighting.
“Throughout the project, Max Cohen and Meyda were great,” according to Mr. Storsberg. “They provided excellent service and worked with us step by step throughout the process. The result thus far has been exceptional. Top-notch. They have gone above and beyond.”
