First Presbyterian Church Sanctuary
Fort Worth, TX
- mechanical / plumbing engineering
- electrical engineering
First Presbyterian Church was formed in 1870, and eventually found its home at 1000 Penn Street in 1956. It has since undergone periodic renovations and updates, most recently to the sanctuary and lobby area. Last updated in the 1990s, the space was dark and outdated.
Our electrical team had three main areas to highlight in this sanctuary renovation: the offering table, podium, and a cross on the back wall. New lighting was also required for the organ, choir (whose seating had been relocated), and other stage lighting. The pendant fixtures selected by the Bass family in the 90s were re-lamped, as well as the sconces along either side of the congregation. New lighting was also installed in the lobby and at the building’s entrance.
Some mechanical updates were also needed. These included new air devices in the sanctuary and lobby and replacement of the motors on each unit.
The church began using the sanctuary again in November of 2018, and has since enjoyed worshipping in this brighter, updated space.
