Croton-Harmon Maintenance Facility, New York


The Croton-Harmon Maintenance Facility located at Croton-on-Hudson, NY, has been servicing trains for more than a century, and undergoing renovations since 2001. The improvements were paramount, as prior to the renovation the tracks were not long enough to service an entire train at once. Extending the tracks to service an entire train will allow the maintenance yard to keep their 98% on time record.

With the launch of Paramount’s new website, in the coming weeks we’d like to introduce you to some of the new features. This week we’ll focus on the new LEARN section. This is an area where we will be showcasing a variety of things from product information, announcements, news, and successful application stories, just to name a few. We already have a lot of information to peruse, with more on the way! We’re hoping it will be a popular “go to” place for our viewers in the near future.

When it comes to serving some of the best French and Japanese dishes in Los Angeles, proper lighting is of utmost importance. As you step foot inside of CHAYA, you will notice the modern and chic subtleties that are prevalent throughout the room. You help yourself to one of the twelve seats available at the sushi bar and watch as the CHAYA chefs prepare the best sushi you have ever had. You then decide to order an entrée and ask not what is good, but what is the best?


Caltrans District 7 Headquarters, California


Think of a state office building in downtown Los Angeles as a canvas on which to create significant architectural design. When the California Department of Transportation, or Caltrans, committed to building a replacement headquarters for their 7th district, they gave the canvas to architectural firm Morphosis.

Thom Mayne, who founded Morphosis,recently won the prestigious international Pritzker Prize for architecture. Working with him on the District 7 headquarters was project architect Pavel Getov and project manager Silvia Kuhle. Contracting was handled by the Clark Construction Group.

The Market Street Bridge is a historic landmark spanning the Ohio River, connecting Steubenville, Ohio and Follansbee, West Virginia. It is a steel suspension bridge spanning a length of 1,794 feet and built in 1905. After hearing reports that the bridge might be closing, city councils on both sides of the river got together and petitioned for the bridge to be repaired and beautified.

Work begins in 2010 cleaning and repairing the bridge’s steel structure, applying a penetrant sealer, as well as special calcium sulfonate paint.

Application Photo Gallery


Presenting another addition to our “Weekly Application Photo Gallery”. We hope you are learning and discovering more about the variety and diverse areas Paramount has successfully illuminated. Our quality products, innovative technology, experience and service is second to none.

Application photos for this week are from Biotest Pharmaceuticals Corporation (fromerly Nabi Biopharmaceuticals), located in Boca Raton, Florida, They focus on developing vaccines and antibody-based products to prevent and treat infectious and addictive diseases. Paramount’s H9 Series Cube Lites with Sylvania’s ICETRON™ electrode-less fluorescent lamps were used in the freezer storage areas, which are required to maintain a constant -35°F. The low temperature starting capability and long life of the ICETRON™ lamps were a winning combination for the project. The Sales Representative was Power & Lighting Systems in Deerfield Beach (http://www.p-ls.com/).

Biotest Pharmaceuticals Corporation (fromerly Nabi Biopharmaceuticals) is a company focused on developing vaccines and antibody-based products to prevent and treat infectious and addictive diseases, such as staph aureus, hepatitis B and nicotine addiction.

The Utica Community Schools, north of Detroit, make up a large suburban public school district, second largest in Michigan. The district maintains a very good relationship with the local communities it serves, and receives a good deal of support in return. In 2001, district officials realized that their 28 elementary school gyms were really serving as multi-purpose rooms, more useful to the community than just phys-ed venues. So they made a commitment to renovating these facilities, including a dramatic overhaul of lighting.
