150+ lighting fixtures upgraded.
Situated on the highest point in downtown St. Paul, our team has been involved in the historic preservation of this iconic structure. The Cathedral’s cornerstone was laid on June 2, 1907 and in 1974, it was placed on the National Register of Historical Buildings.
We designed the new exterior lighting for the building, which replaced the old flood lights with over 150 fixtures that highlighted the architectural features of the Cathedral. The exterior lighting was completed in 2000 and since then we have worked on various interior lighting projects, such as:
- Adding openings in the dome for theatrical style fixtures to light the altar and baldachin.
- Lighting the new organ case and enhancing the choir loft.
- Adding custom rigging pipes and fixtures to better light the rose window from the inside.
We are currently working on upgrading the exterior light sources to LED sources, which will save energy and improve the brightness and longevity of the lighting. We have been working with the Historic Preservation Board to secure funding for this multi-year phased plan. The first phase is half done, with new LED lighting on the John Ireland side of the building and the crown of the dome.
Our goal is to upgrade all the lighting in a 5-year plan, to preserve and showcase this architectural gem in the skyline of St. Paul.
