Allen Architectural Metals, Inc. was chosen to re-create the four large-scale electroliers that illuminate the bridge and two sets of decorative bronze figure- heads that mark the Brooklyn entrance to the bridge. The electroliers were fabricated from steel and a combination of cast iron components. The hundreds of steel rivets utilized in the fabrication process demanded a precision assembly. Allen was also responsible for the re-creation of the two sets of decorative bronze figure-heads and bandings. These massive figure-heads were molded and cast in bronze as exact replicas and polished to a satin finish. The laurel leaf bandings surrounding the illuminated obelisks that support the figure-heads we re molded and cast in bronze to match the originals from the bridge as well. Much time and attention to detail was necessary to bring this giant bridge back to its original luster.
